Since the early 2000s, selfies have come under fire as a narcissist's best friend.
In 2013, the International Business Times reported that scientists had identified a link between selfies, narcissism and addiction, which prompted Time magazine's snarky response of, "How else am I supposed to derive self-worth other than posting filtered photos of my face for creepy dudes I went to high school with to save to their desktops?"
Last year, the American Psychiatric Association was the butt of a hoax involving the fake "selfie-itis," a fictional disease relating to excessive selfie taking that went viral online, as Forbes reported.
These days, selfies are reportedly spurring a hike in demand for plastic surgery — from botox for that engagement ring selfie to a 25 percent rise in plastic surgery for the "picture perfect" look, the London Daily Mail reported.
This week added another unfortunate term to the growing list of problems associated with selfies: Psychopathy.
A survey published in the journal Personality and Individual Differences found that men who take and share a lot of selfies on social media are more likely to exhibit anti-social behavior, narcissism and self-objectification.
But excessive selfies does not a serial killer make, the study assured. Study author Jesse Fox said that the levels that hallmark psychopathy, like narcissism, were "within average levels and not diagnosed disorders," as Gizmodo reported.
