Makes you think twice about that bro of yours who posts his bathroom shots, right?

“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,” says Jesse Fox, the lead author of the study. “The more interesting finding is that they also score higher on this other anti-social personality trait, psychopathy, and are more prone to self-objectification,” he adds.

However, Fox clarified that selfie addicts aren't necessarily soon-to-be or (gasp!) current psychopaths or narcissists. All participants in the all-male research had personality scores that were within the normal range, albeit having above average levels of the said negative or anti-social traits.
