Phew! Taking Selfies Doesn’t Make You a Narcissist
Sure, it’s easy to label selfie-takers as self-obsessed, but a new small study finds that those who snap photos of themselves aren’t necessarily narcissists.
Instead, the researchers found that selfie-takers fall into three categories: communicators, self-publicists and autobiographers.
“It’s important to recognize that not everyone [who takes selfies] is a narcissist,” study co-author Steven Holiday, who was a graduate student at Brigham Young University while working on the study, said in a statement.
