“Does Putin Have Dark Triad Traits? | Vladimir Putin Case Analysis
“Putin is a controversial leader, in Russia, there are serious questions about the legitimacy of his presidency,
for example, elections have not been transparent, free speech has been suppressed and political activists have
a way of ending up in prison there, despite his authoritarian approach putin enjoyed very high approval ratings in
Russia for many years, typically over 80 percent in 2018, his approval rating dropped into the low 60s which still seemed
unnaturally elevated just like Joe Biden’s 2022 approval rating of 40 percent, it’s hard to imagine how it’s that high.
Putin has been recognized outside of Russia as well for example forbes magazine ranked him the world’s most
powerful individual from 2013 all the way through 2016. Under Putin’s leadership Russia has maintained a good deal of influence in former soviet states, after the 2014 Ukrainian revolution… controlling Ukraine would result in a
financial benefit for Russia…at the time making this video it appears as though a full-scale invasion of
Ukraine by Russia is in it… Putin has been described in many ways on the negative side he has been called
a bully, a dictator and an aspiring cult leader, he has been described as arrogant, self-centered, power-hungry, manipulative, moody and callous on the positive side he has been described as pragmatic, patient, calm, resourceful, determined analytical and at times reasonable… he wants to be a combination of an outdoorsman, tough guy and superhero… he wants them to believe that only a leader who possesses profound macho assertiveness can save Russia… he has low agreeableness, he is not trusting altruistic or modest… many people believe that Putin has high
levels of psychopathy, narcissism and machiavellianism.. Putin’s behavior aligns with characteristics
and both types of psychopathy but more strongly with primary psychopathy… Putin’s behavior aligns strongly with
machiavellianism… Putin’s persona appears to be consistent with factor one psychopathy, grandiose narcissism and
machiavellianism, although he is not particularly intelligent he is calculating and determined he promotes himself as a glorious and necessary leader who seeks to revisit the nostalgia of the soviet era and restore Russia to greatness… Putin is still dangerous, the only thing that somebody like Putin understands is force and strength, his decisions are not motivated by empathy, compassion or a sense of morality, but rather by the potential glory and admiration he can obtain
weight against his fear of losing his power.”
