I was reading Grazia magazine recently and they reported on a story of a woman who was obsessed with taking selfies. The first recognised case of selfie addiction was recently cited, where a 19 year old boy spent 10 hours a day taking up to 200 pictures of himself and got so obsessed with taking the perfect picture that he became suicidal. He went to rehab for his addiction and has since been selfie free for seven months.
It seems selfies are on the up, so to speak, and can become strangely addictive.
Are Selfies a sign of narcissism?
|Even our world leaders are at it (excluding the First Lady that is)!|
As for me, I still have quite a way to go before I publish my first selfie (I did make several attempts and really did not like the results)! But given my discussion above, maybe that's not such a bad thing!
