Because social media and devices are a big part of almost every teenager’s life, it has opened more doors to cyber cases such as bullying. This study aims to find out if teenagers who have done cyberbullying in the past (CB) would have a higher score in the Dark Triad (Machiavellianism /Psychopathy /Narcissism) test (DT) than those who have not done cyberbullying (nCB), and to find if there is a relationship between the perceived normalcy of Cyberbullying (PNCB) and the frequency of observed Cyberbullying behavior (FOCB). The researchers administered an online survey that included the Dark Triad personality test (DTPT) and the Cyberbullying survey to thirty-seven (37) respondents, through opportunity sampling. Results show that there is no significant difference (p>.05) between CB and nCB in terms of scores in DT, for each of the subtype (M/P/N). However, there was a significant relationship between PNCB and FOCB (r=.37). This suggests that personality traits (M/N/P) may not be ideal in identifying or predicting cyberbullying behavior, but what relates to frequency of CB is if it is perceived to be normal within the community. Thus, an ideal action for schools to fight cyberbullying is to de-normalise it.
