Presentation Abstract

The rapid spread of the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States was due, or at least in part, to the resistance of health guidelines, and minimal to no safety measures implemented by nearly half the US citizens, and to a lesser extent, the initial lack of understanding into the pathogenic mode of transmission. The present study examines links between the Dark (i.e.., narcissism, psychopathy, Machiavellianism) and Light (i.e.., compassion, empathy, altruism) Triad of personality traits and different gratification measures to predict COVID-19 vaccine uptake and personality correlations to the perceived threat level of COVID-19 in a college sample of xxx (N= xx) undergraduate students. Students with marginal scores in compassion, and psychopathy suggests unique environmental and situational circumstances can trigger perplexing reactions.
