• This test exists to determine whether you are A) Machiavellian or B) just plain evil. Well, sort of. It really just determined which way you lean. You're probably wondering whats the difference between the two, so I'll explain. Evil is cruelty, malice, lust and hatred for the hell of it. Machiavellian is all of those things for a reason (which can actually be a benevolent one!). Think good of the many vs needs of the few.
