The book would become infamous for its recommendation for rulers to be ready to act in unscrupulous ways, such as resorting to deceit and cunning, political assassination, and the usage of fear as a means of keeping order.

I can add colours to the chameleon, Change shapes with Proteus for advantages, And set the murderous Machiavel to school. It was first published in Septembera few months after Frederick became king, and is one of many such works.
Denis Diderotthe French philosopher, viewed Machiavellianism as "an abhorrent type of politics" and the "art of tyranny". Machiavellian intelligence Machiavellianism is also a term that some socialforensic and personality psychologists use to describe a person's tendency to be unemotional, and therefore able to detach themself from conventional morality and hence to deceive and manipulate others.
In the s, Richard Christie and Florence L. Geis developed a test for measuring a person's level of Machiavellianism sometimes referred to as the Machiavelli test. People scoring high on the scale high Machs tend to endorse statements such as, "Never tell anyone the real reason you did something unless it is useful to do so," No.
Using their scale, Christie and Geis conducted multiple experimental tests that showed that the interpersonal strategies and behavior of "High Machs" and "Low Machs" differ. More recent research on the motivations of high Machs compared to low Machs found that they gave high priority to money, powerand competition and relatively low priority to community building, self-love, and family concerns.
High Machs admitted to focusing on unmitigated achievement and winning at any cost.
However, research has firmly established that Machiavellianism is unrelated to IQ. Furthermore, studies on emotional intelligence have found that high Machiavellianism actually tends to be associated with low emotional intelligence as assessed by both performance and questionnaire measures.
Both emotional empathy and emotion recognition have been shown to have negative correlations with Machiavellianism. Additionally, research has shown that Machiavellianism is unrelated to a more advanced theory of mindthat is, the ability to anticipate what others are thinking in social situations.
If high Machs actually are skilled at manipulating others, this appears to be unrelated to any special cognitive abilities as such. Some psychologists consider Machiavellianism to be essentially a subclinical form of psychopathy,  although recent research suggests that while Machiavellianism and psychopathy overlap, they are distinct personality constructs.
Agency refers to motivation to succeed and to individuate the self, whereas communion refers to motivation to merge with others and to support group interests. Machiavellianism lies in the quadrant of the circumplex defined by high agency and low communion.
