Are the elderly really machiavellian? A reinterpretation of an unexpected finding

Journal of Business Ethics 13 (9):757 - 758 (1994)
Abstract
In an article published recently in theJournal of Business Ethics, Vitellet al. (1991) found that elderly respondents scored surprisingly high on a measure of Machiavellianism. This paper offers an alternative explanation for this unexpected result — it may be an artifact of the survey format employed — and recommends additional research to help clarify the issues raised by Vitell and his colleagues.
