The research looked at 800 men between the ages of 18-40 who completed an online survey about how many photos they posted on social media, and another questionnaire looking at their personality traits.

It also found men who edited their selfies before posting them were more likely to have traits of narcissism but editing selfies was not linked to psychopathic traits.

Professor Jesse Fox, the study’s lead author, said while it may not be surprising that men who spend a lot of time posting selfies and editing them are more narcissistic, it had not yet been confirmed in a scientific research. For Fox, the “more interesting finding” was that selfie-obsessed men had more psychopathic traits and self-objectified, which means valuing oneself primarily on the basis of appearance.”

“With the growing use of social networks, everyone is more concerned with their appearance. That means self-objectification may become a bigger problem for men, as well as for women.” Fox added.

While the research found the number of selfles posted were linked to narcissistic and psychopathic traits that does not mean your male friends posting copious selfies are full-blown psychopaths or narcissists. While some of the men in the study had higher than average traits of these characteristics, they all scored within normal ranges of human behaviour.
