This is so crazy!
A new study by Ohio State University Professor Jesse Fox found that men who post tons of selfies online tend to be a little more… psycho.
The study showed that men who took hella selfies also happened to exhibit higher levels of narcissism and psychopathy!
Obsessing over what filter to use didn't make things better. Those men were found to have even more intense narcissism and self-objectification.
The study itself consisted of men aged 18-40 filling out online surveys about their selfie habits. Then they filled out a questionnaire about anti-social behavior and objectification.

After about 800 men participated, the study found that men who took tons of selfies tended to show higher levels of psychopathy than others… but everyone within the study tested within the normal, still healthy enough range.
So don't worry, just because you like to share a sexy selfie every now and again, and maybe are obsessing over which filter really highlights your jawline, it's okay, you're not crazy.
Maybe a little closer to psycho than some would be comfortable but still enough to remain within society. LOLz!
If you find you just can't stop taking selfies (maybe you're taking several right now) just remember: JUST ONE selfie a day AND NO MORE keeps the straight jacket away.
Good luck cutting back on those selfies, boys!!
