  • Abstract Despite the fact that Big Five personality traits have been well developed in organizational behavior research, little extant research has discovered the linkage between dark side of personality and workplace outcomes. Therefore, in an attempt to broaden the understanding of the dark side of personality in workplace, the present study proposed a mediation model to explore the relationship between the Dark Triad of personality (i.e. Machiavellianism, narcissism, and psychopathy) and work attitude–affective commitment. Mediators were added (i.e. person-organization fit) to have comprehensive perspectives on the relationship between individuals with the Dark Triad and their work surroundings. The hypothesized model was supported with multiple regression using a sample of 151 employees from a variety of organizations. This study showed that high-Machs and psychopaths had a negative impact on affective commitment and also the association between the two dark personality traits and affective commitment was mediated by person-organization fit.
