Selfitis Behavior in Relation to Narcissism, Personality, Self Esteem and Body Image among Male Youth
Abstract: Background: Rutledge (2014) states that a selfie can be a powerful tool that can be used as a projective image posted online and seen by the public. Seeing a person taking pictures of himself may leave curiosity in someone?s mind leaving questions like why does an individual have to take a picture of himself? Does it have a connection with how an individual feels today? What drives an individual to take random pictures of his stuff? It may be challenging to understand the real point of the selfie, but it may come differently to the person taking a selfie. Different interpretations and viewpoints of every individual might leave curiosity to those seeking attention. The person taking and sharing selfies feels glad to hear good appraisals from others. Narcissism, personality, self - esteem, and body image are the four factors in the current study that are most strongly associated with selfitis behavior. Objective: The main objective goal of the current study was to examine the correlation of selfitis behavior, narcissism, personality, self - esteem, and body image among male university students.
