The Despotic Madman “Dark Triad” Scorecard

Genghis Khan is tied for 1st on the Dark Triad scale…was he a shameless “Khan-man”?
This is a sad commentary on humankind, but a better understanding of despotic tendencies may lead to tyrannical avoidance?
Napolean was tied with Khan…he was an unquestioned military genius, if a bit nutty
Many give Caesar military points, but I believe he was simply a silver-tongued butcher utilizing Rome’s military advantages for personal gain
