Selfie publication frequency Facebook – The most interesting research of psychologists. From the University of Wroclaw is that the frequency of publication selfie on Facebook. Is associated with narcissism in men: the more pictures of yourself Mr. X sends to the wall, the greater the likelihood that he has a narcissistic personality. Interestingly, in women the link between narcissism and sending selfie not found. Anna Oleszkiewicz from the Institute of Psychology, University of Wroclaw. Explains that such directing the lens at each other in men may be more socially acceptable than in women.

In the journal “Computers in Human Behavior“. Scientists explain this phenomenon by the fact that such emotional, deeply private ascents much more likely to get sympathetic comments – that is something that people crave a particularly neurotic.

This is due to the need to pay attention to themselves and social sanctions for their choices. Think psychologists from Brunel University. Who analyzed the behavior of more than a half thousand facebook users.

Fondness for exclamation points are characterized by extroverts (probably because it attracts attention). Who more often than others use positive words. They send more pictures and more often than introverts update their statuses.

Large number of articles available on the side of information – both scientific and political – is a sign that we have to deal with someone called personality open to the experience. These are people interesting news and tolerant. If someone writes a lot especially about their children. Significant probability that a conscientious personality type (that is, those who attach great importance to the planning and order).

Considering as a person unworthy of being loved and fears of abandonment. While keeping its trade secret and do not write about them almost at all. It may suggest a person avoiding intimacy, not trusting others. Golden mean, of course, is somewhere in the middle – that is neither too much nor too little posts of the beloved.

Interestingly, more people write about their relationship in the days that they do not feel particularly confident feelings partner.
