Do you take a lot of selfies? You’re more likely to kill people
If you share a lot of selfies you might be a psychopath, says a new study.
New research claims that men who post more photos of themselves on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram score higher on psychopathic personality tests.
The study from Ohio State University found that selfie addicts are more likely to be narcissistic, impulsive and display other characteristics, such as a lack of empathy.
You’re more likely to be a psychopath if you haven’t spent ages cropping and filtering your pics before you post them online.
Impulsive selfie takers who upload their snaps straight away show the most signs.
Lead author of the study Jesse Fox says: “Psychopathy is characterized by impulsivity.
“They are going to snap the photos and put them online right away. They want to see themselves”.
Unsurprisingly, if you do spend ages cropping and adding filters, you’re likely to be a self-loving narcissist.
Lead author of the study Jesse Fox said: “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.
None of those surveyed exhibited extreme cases of narcissism or psychopathy: but they ranked higher than average for both traits.
Narcissists think they’re better than everyone else, while psychopaths have a lack of empathy. Remind you of any Insta-famous people you follow?
