Selfie (selfie) has become popular all over the world, and even self-portrait sticks for taking self-portraits have appeared these days, but those who upload only self-portrait photos to SNS such as Facebook and Twitter are narcissism. It became clear that they have higher-than-average personality traits such as selfies and psychopathies.

Hey, Guys: Posting a Lot of Selfies Doesn't Send a Good Message

A recent study from The Ohio State University found that men who publish more selfies on the web show higher values ​​in personality traits such as narcissism and psychopathy than men who do not. Furthermore, it is known that those who edit selfies before sharing them on SNS etc. have higher personality traits such as narcissism.

'I'm not surprised that the man who posts a lot of selfies and spends a lot of time editing photos is a narcissist. This study is the first to reveal this in a real study. This is an example of this, 'says Jesse Fox, an assistant professor who conducted research on selfies and personality. According to Associate Professor Fox, men who share a lot of selfies tend to be more self-objective, commenting that 'this is a very interesting discovery.'

Strong personality traits such as narcissism and psychopathy do not mean that all men taking selfies are narcissists or psychopaths. In the research conducted by Associate Professor Fox, the men who took many selfies were judged to have normal personality as a result of the test. However, although it is within the normal range, personality traits such as narcissism and psychopathy show higher than average values. The study surveyed 800 men between the ages of 18 and 40, not females.

It seems that there is almost no relationship between photo editing and psychopathy, but photo editing seems to have a great relationship with self-objectiveness. It has also become clear that self-objectification is primarily for assessing one's appearance and not for other personality traits. In the case of females, self-objectiveness may cause eating disorders and depression.
