The Triarchic model of psychopathy includes three components: boldness, meanness, and disinhibition. The model proposed that boldness is an adaptive component of psychopathy. Considering the empathic deficit present in psychopathy, emotional intelligence (EI) is an important construct for investigation of psychopathy. The major aim of this study was to investigate the role of boldness in predicting dimensions of emotional intelligence. The second aim of the present study was to explore whether associations between psychopathic components and dimensions of emotional intelligence vary across sex. Four-hundred-and-ninety-five students (51 % men) completed the Triarchic Psychopathy Measure (TriPM), and Wong and Law Emotional Intelligence Scale (WLEIS). The results of hierarchical regression analysis indicated that boldness shows adaptive features and represent a “successful” expressions of psychopathy, while disinhibition and meanness represent risk factors for adaptive interpersonal behaviour. Furthermore, results indicated that the relationship between TriPM and WLEIS did not vary across sex.
