“Hundreds of tests on people's social media habits were conducted for the study, which showed that people who post a lot of selfies also tend to score higher in traits of narcissism and psychopathy.”

Sounds about right to me.

    I don't know really.....kids take them all the time and I wouldn't have said all of them are narcissistic.

    Probably more insecure than anything - trying to get 'likes' is rather sad.

    Personally I don't take them as I always look awful :oops:

    Hopefully it will stop soon and maybe social media like faceb**k etc. will have their day too :roll:
    Love

    I'm not an obsessive selfie taker, occasionally I take one when I've had my hair done but the majority of photo's in my file are of the pusskins.

    Maybe its my age but I would never post a selfie as it smacks of vanity.
