Is Social Media Making Us Narcissistic? [infographic]

Social Media & Narcissism [INFOGRAPHIC] #socialmedia
Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

This reminds me of the first time I took a Myers Briggs test. After the test and the assessment everyone walked around amazed at what the test said about them. No big surprises to me since I filled out the test (lol). Just as I don't think the test MADE my fellow NTLers anything I don't think social media is MAKING us one thing or another. Is social media amplifying an existing trend? Sure but mirrors aren't people and they continue to be the enemy of vampires (not sure what that means but was fun to think about :). M

Kelly Saiz's curator insight, April 15, 2014 8:29 AM

This is a question that I have wondered about. While this graphic gives an abbreviated, visual response to the question, it provides key insights into the issue. 


The image cleverly illustrates the signs of narcissism before depicting the negative effects of social media, which include ADHD, depression and narcissistic personality disorder and addiction, among others. 


It would be interesting to know the reasons WHY "People who use Facebook the most tend to have more narcissistic or insecure personalities" and why "those who [score] higher in narcissism also posted more often on twitter". While this post points out yet another important issue surrounding social media that cannot be ignored by business professionals and users alike, it does not provide enough information for the reasoning behind its statements.
