Someone somewhere once asked me , “ If you meet someone , are there any ‘clues’ to detect serious narcissism ?” I smiled and replied, check out the selfie frequency. With a dream to unfriend all the selfie obsessed geeks, I begin my outrage. Making no fuss about asking the people around to click, the obsession for selfie has increased manifold. As far as my views are concerned, a selfie comes in the same category as dropping that ‘mah’ every now and then instead of a friendly little ‘My’.
If it’s about the relatives, your group of friends or picture with your favorite celebrity, You go the right way! Be it ‘selfie’. However the same guy/girl posting 20 pictures of his/her goat faced look is what makes me realize about the need of ‘UNLIKE’ button on FB.
The quality to click a DUCK faced selfie and then uploading it with a lame or melancholic caption is a condemnable effort. I wonder how people can stand in front of an unclean mirror, click a selfie and cry for likes and comments.
This CAPTION Amuses Me –“The Bathroom Selfie”.
Then there are these funeral selfies that shows insensitivity prevailing in our world now a days . I wonder how someone took a selfie at Phil Hughe’s funeral.
The act of narcissism has decreased the intensity of the goodwill of the events that once used to be a serious platform of discussion on issues and causes are now a Check-in status with a Selfie on social media .
Indeed narcissism, being obsessed with receiving recognition and gratification from ones looks, vanity and in an egotistical manner, is becoming a big problem in our digital age.
