Selfies Are Linked To THESE Personality Disorders!


Let’s take a look at a few of the issues experts say are common in compulsive selfie taking.



Research has shown that individuals with higher narcissistic personality traits tend to post more selfies on social media. Editing a selfie before posting it is a sign of even greater narcissism.

“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 and post selfies on social media sites,” says psychiatrist Dr. David Veale.

Low Self-Esteem
