Men who post too many selfies are narcissistic and psychopathic

The men were asked how frequently they post a picture of themselves, and whether they edited the pictures by cropping them, applying filters to them, or employed photo-editing software. Men who edit their online pictures before posting them, ranked higher for narcissism and self-objectification. The latter means that you value yourself based on appearance and not for other positive traits you might have. This behavior can lead to eating disorders and depression. It is a vicious cycle. Men who score higher for self-objectification post more selfies, seeking to hear more feedback about their appearance, which leads to the posting of more selfies.
The survey didn't show that all men who post an inordinate number of selfies are criminals that you should stay clear of. They did score in the normal range of behavior, albeit with a higher degree of anti-social activity.

Not psychopathic, but you didn't mention narcissistic... Just kidding. I've never posted a single selfie, don't have a Snapchat or instagram or any of that. Don't do Facebook (had one, it irritated me so much I deleted it. Talk about self involved people - I don't care if you're heading to the market to buy chicken) What I need is an antisocial network!

I'm the opposite bro, highly social. I love crowded places, talking to strangers, just general socializing. I run into people on the strip, and Fremont St. Experience all the time. I really like talking to elderly married couples, I always ask what their secret is to a long marriage. The things they say range from funny, to enlightening. Why don't you like Facebook?

Numerous times you have threatened to attack people and/or steal from them and because they insulted the fruit or you lost an argument, and were serious. Sounds p psychotic and childish to me. "When words no work, smash with fists! RARGH!" Neanderthal.

You're clearly jelly of him having a hot wife; 17 years old kid, who btw graduates in June, and heads to UNLV, on a full ride, unless he takes another offer(you know we should take his word on this); him owning every other Apple product and the Apple watches his buying for himself and his family. And lastly, i bet you are mostly butthurt because his bff is the one and only, Mxyzbtlk. Darkkjeddi, the idol of many iZombies on this site.
