Belief in Pure Evil, Belief in Pure Good, and Interpersonal Aggression

The current study examined the relationship between beliefs in pure evil (BPE; the tendency to attribute harmdoing to narcissistic and sadistic “evildoers” ) and pure good (BPG; essentially, belief in pure altruism) on self-reported forms of reactive (with provocation) and proactive (without provocation) interpersonal aggression. BPE did not strongly relate to these forms of aggression, while people who reported greater BPG reported engaging in less forms.
