Selfie-posting men present traits of narcissism and psychopathy, study finds.


A new study conducted by Jesse Fox, assistant professor of Communication at The Ohio State University, shows that men in the study who posted more photos of
themselves online than the rest of the group, scored higher on measures of narcissism and psychopathy.

Additionally, men, who tended to edit their selfies before posting, scored higher up the scale in narcissism and self-objectification, which measures the extent to which they prioritize their appearance. “It’s not surprising that men who post a lot of selfies and spend more time editing them are more narcissistic, but this is the first time it has actually been confirmed in a study,” says Jesse Fox.

Narcissism is demonstrated by a belief that you are more intelligent, more attractive and generally better than others, although with some level of underlying insecurity. Psychopathy involves a lack of empathy and regard for others and a tendency toward impulsive behavior. The results of the study are published online in the journal, Personality and Individual Differences….. ds is bad news for dt local dog eater from Calabar, Iyanya……
