The results showed that there was a significant positive relationship between moral judgments and narcissism with normative order, selfish, social, concerted execution consequences. There was also a significant negative relationship between psychopathy with justice and the consequences of concurrent enforcement and a significant negative relationship with Machiavellianism with justice. The results of the regression model showed that the components of moral judgments are capable of predicting Machiavellianism personality traits. The justice with a beta coefficient of -0.212 predicted only about 3% of this personality trait.
