    Abstract: Employees of knowledge industry often found indulged in knowledge hiding practices instigating knowledge hiding behaviour (KHB). Based on the social exchange theory, the current study investigates the impact of dark triad (DT) personality dimensions (Machiavellianism, narcissism, and psychopathy) on KHB dimensions (rationalised hiding, evasive hiding, and playing dumb). The data was collected from 281 faculty members working with higher education institutions in India. The results revealed that Machiavellians mostly instigate evasive hiding, narcissists believe in rationalised hiding, and playing dumb is primarily instigated by psychopaths.
