The current chapter examines how various subject matter experts behave in dark, quasi-psychopathic ways and engage in rites of passage to protect access to the sanctity derived from possession of credentials. It highlights six dark personality-derived profiles specific to the expert fields: Phony Charlatans, Mystic Defenders, Harboring Imposters, False Mentors, Foraging Collaborators, and Disreputable Profiteers.
