Read the passage and answer the question that follow.

People who are antagonistic, exploitative and generally disagreeable are more likely to believe in conspiracy theories, according to recent study from a UO researcher.
Cameron Kay, a doctoral candidate in the Department of Psychology, found that people who possess personality traits known as the "Dark Tetrad" are more likely to believe Princess Diana's death was orchestrated by the British royal family, that the moon landing was faked, and that alien spacecraft are being stored at Area 51, among other conspiracy theories. Kay's study was published in the journal Personality and Individual Differences.
The traits o f the Dark Tetrad are Machiavellianism (manipulativeness and cynicism); narcissism (vanity and self obsession); psychopathy callousness); and sadism (cruelty and abusiveness). Most people have elements callousness); and sadism (cruelty and abusiveness). Most people have elements of some of these traits, Kay said.
In plain terms, it seems like disagreeable people, who score high in these traits, are more likely to believe in conspiracy theories," Kay said. "They are prone to odd beliefs. They don't feel like they are in control of their lives. They are robbed of their agency and have an innate distrust of other people and organizations like the government."
To conduct his study, Kay recruited 500 undergraduate students at the UO to complete a one-hour survey designed to measure the traits in question as well as belief in conspiracy theories (26 students were ultimately excluded). The survey also measured tendencies to have unusual beliefs, to feel a lack of control over one's future, to desire control, to trust others, and to feel a need to be unique.
