The purpose of this paper is to examine the effect of the dark triad among Indonesia accountants on their ethical behaviour. Mach IV scale is used to measure the Machiavellianism traits of accountants, the NPI-16 scale is used to assess the Narcissism traits, and PPI scale is used to measure the Psychopathy traits. This approach used 26 public accountant firms in Malang, Surabaya and Jakarta for a sample. We expect that the result of Machiavellianism has a negative influence on ethical behaviour. On other hand, we expect Narcissism and Psychopathy has a positive influence on ethical behaviour. The paper finds out that narcissism, and psychopathy have a positive influence on ethical behaviour, while Machiavellianism has a negative influence on ethical behaviour.
