People take selfies of themselves to post on social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. They do this for their friend to click, favorite, like, comment or heart on the pictures.
This behavior is associated with narcissism. A condition where you pursue too much gratification on your physical appearances and abilities.
The researchers also found that posting many selfies relates to psychopathy. But it doesn’t mean that you’re a 100 percent psychopath. The study reveals that the more you post pictures, the more you’re likely to fall into the narcissistic and psychopathy spectrum.
The study also shows that selfies fall into two types of narcissism. The first one is vanity. This’s a situation where someone enjoys admiring their outstanding self-appearances.
