Men who take selfies are psychopaths, according to science
What else is new
In today’s edition of “I knew it and I’m going to send it to my friends so they know that I called this ages ago”, men who take selfies are psychopaths.
New research claims that men who post more photos of themselves on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram score higher on psychopathic personality tests, so you’re totally justified swiping right on guys who post shirtless bathroom shots on their Tinder profile. You probably always thought they look like they might kill you and chop your body into little pieces before dissolving those pieces in an acid bath, and now science has confirmed your suspicions to be absolutely true.
The study from Ohio State University found that selfie addicts are more likely to be narcissistic, impulsive and display other characteristics, such as a lack of empathy. Impulsive selfie takers – ie. the ones who go straight for the instant gratification of likes on an average shot without even the time and effort spent on cropping and choosing the right filters – are the worst offenders and show the most signs of psychopathic behaviour.
Jesse Fox, the lead author of the study, says: “Psychopathy is characterized by impulsivity. They are going to snap the photos and put them online right away. They want to see themselves”. But people who do spend time and efforting cropping and filtering don’t get off scot-free. They might not be psychopaths, but they are more likely to be self-loving narcissists.
Fox said: “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.”

Pretty much everyone I know has taken one of those ancestry DNA tests. And yeah, they're expensive but I can definitely see the appeal. The level of detail in the breakdowns — 56 percent Irish, 20 percent Balkan, 12 percent Iberian — isn't something you could get from a conversation with your grandma. And it's…
