But it's not like if you take photos of yourself you're immediately a crazy ax murderer. These levels of narcissism, self-objectification, and psychopathy were within average means and not diagnosed disorders, says Fox. In fact, a little bit of psychopathy isn't necessarily a bad thing for your Tinder profile.
This lack of filtering and impulsivity in SNS [social networking sites] posting may benefit some psychopathic men, however. One study found that male users who had SNS posts that alluded to excessive drinking and promiscuous behavior were perceived as more attractive than male users with posts identifying them as ''the life of the party'' (Walther, Van Der Heide, Kim, Westerman, & Tong, 2008). Thus, when psychopathic men appear reckless or impulsive on SNSs, it may actually help attract mates.
+1 for our selfie-taking psychos!
