What Can Selfies Say About You and Your Friends!?

Loading...
We all like to share selfies on social media like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram to show off our moods, but what actually selfie can say about you and your friends!?

Going back in history we are being aware of first oneself photography made and it was by  Robert Cornelius.
An American pioneer in photography, Robert produced a daguerreotype of himself in 1839 which is also one of the first photographs of a person.

The first use of the word selfie in any paper or electronic medium appeared in an Australian internet forum on 13 September 2002.

Among the Millennial Generation, taking selfies is connected to narcissism, and how narcissistic you are, depends on how many selfies you are posting.


 According to a study of 800 men published in the April 2015 edition of the peer-reviewed journal Personality and Individual Differences, and a not-yet-published but similar study of 400 women, people who post selfies are more likely to exhibit "the dark triad" of personality traits, reports Market Watch.
This dark triad consists of narcissism (extreme self-centeredness), Machiavellianism (manipulation of others) and psychopathy (acting impulsively with no regard for other people's feelings).
 Previous research has led to similar findings.
One study of 400 men and women that was published last year in the peer-reviewed academic journal Social Networking found that the more people changed their profile picture, the more likely they were to exhibit self-reported narcissistic personality traits.

Also, posting frequent status updates and sharing links with a greater frequency were specifically linked with more narcissistic tendencies in women.

However, experts point out that the research does not suggest that posting selfies makes a person more narcissistic, but rather that selfies are merely a (highly public, sometimes annoying (but they're so prevalent now that are they really annoying?) vehicle for the already self-absorbed to blast their filtered faces out to the world.

 And that posting selfies occasionally doesn't make you a narcissist in the harshest sense of the term.

 Summing up the all, there is good narcissism (the measured kind that helps you get ahead at work) and the bad kind (which is so extreme it can harm relationships with others).

It is cute to have a little dose of narcissism anyway but anything that is overdosed is annoying. Hang out with your Friends, shoot for the moments instead of selfies.
