What Taking a Lot of “Selfies” May Say About You

Remember Ellen’s epic “selfie” from the Oscars a couple of weekends ago? Sure, it was fun, but some experts are saying that if you’re someone who takes a lot of pictures of yourself, you may have a problem…

Recently, a psychologist had this to say,

Selfies frequently trigger perceptions of self-indulgence or attention-seeking social dependence that raises the damned-if-you-do and damned-if-you-don’t spectre of either narcissism or low self-esteem.

In other words, that Facebook friend of yours who’s always posting pictures of themselves may have a mental disorder.

Another expert on the topic, British psychiatrist, Dr. David Veal has the following to say on the topic:

Two out of three of all the patients who come to see me with Body Dysmorphic Disorder since the rise of camera phones have a compulsion to repeatedly take selfies.

Do you have any Facebook friends who are constantly posting photos of themselves?
