In a recent Ohio State University study, men who posted more photos of themselves online scored higher in measures of narcissism and psychopathy. The researchers asked 800 men between the ages of 18 and 40 to fill out an online questionnaire asking about their photo posting habits on social media. The researchers found that posting more photos was correlated with both narcissism and psychopathy. These findings don't mean that men who post selfies are actually narcissists or psychopaths, it does mean that they scored higher than others in these anti-social traits, although they were still within the normal range of behavior.


The Ohio State study also found that editing photos of oneself was associated with higher levels of self-objectification. The survey included questions about how often they posted photos of themselves on social media, and about whether and how they edited photos before posting.
According to one study, it's not so much spending an excessive amount of time on Facebook so much as having an unrealistically large number of friends that is correlated with having a narcissistic personality. According to new research, selfies can say a lot about your personality, and not in a good way.


The participants were also asked to fill out standard questionnaires measuring anti-social behaviors and self-objectification (the tendency to overly focus on one's appearance).
Narcissism measures inflated self-image (often motivated by underlying insecurity), while psychopathy involves a lack of empathy and impulsive behavior.
