The study of psychosocial factors that increase individuals’ vulnerability to the negative consequences of exposure to stress, particularly to the development of maladaptive, antisocial responses, is one of the priority areas for psychology and social sciences. The goal of our research was to explore the connections between exposure to stressful events, dark triad personality traits, moral disengagement and subjective well-being in a sample of university students. Our results demonstrated positive correlations between narcissism and subjective well-being as well as between moral disengagement and psychopathy. As part of our research the following questionnaires were translated for use in Russian samples: List of Threatening Events, Moral Disengagement (8-item version), Satisfaction with Life Scale, Primary Care PTSD Screen.

Keywords: stress, well-being, dark triad, moral disengagement
