The selfie syndrome

There is just something off-putting about the excessive selfie taker. Sure you look good, and that's great, but the impulsive need to photograph oneself and slap it on every social media platform is just unnecessary.

Narcissism is a personality disorder that is characterized with a heavy preoccupation with self and how one is perceived to others. Narcissists pursue gratification from their own vanity and through the admiration from others.

The highest medium for the support of the narcissist is Facebook, the "social mirror" if you will. Studies have shown that those who use Facebook the most are more likely to show signs of narcissistic-like qualities and insecure personalities. Those who scored higher in tests of narcissism were shown to update their status and update photos and quotes of themselves much more frequently than those without narcissistic personality disorder.
