Do you have any narcissist friends? Analyze their social profiles!
I'm sure most of you are annoyed when some of your friends post a little to much details on social media. The truth is if you have a social media profile you already are a little of a narcissist yourself and I don't blame you, the essence of social media is deeply narcissistic in nature and this is why online social media has been such a huge success.
But there are people that go over the top and those are the people that you may want to careful about, especially in real life, I know I do.
So here are a few things extream narcissists do on social media:
Their photos - they tend to put a lot of effort into their photos, they tend to wear expensive brand of clothing making the brand stand out as well as having luxury jewelry or other expensive accessories. Women tend to have very revealing photos about certain body parts and men may want you to take note regarding their social status by wearing only certain type of expensive clothes.
The number of friends on their social profiles - Really how has more than 200 people that they know personally? Few people I guess, but some narcissists have way more friends than that, they tend to add random people as friends just so they can have a larger "audience".
They post and talk a lot about themselves saying "I"; "my" and "me" a lot more than the average person.
They have a lot more "selfies" and they also edit those selfies to make sure they look their best as well as stand out from the rest. Posting selfies every day is a clear indication of narcissism.
They have huge numbers of travel related photos. What better wait to increase your perceived social status than to post loads of photos from your travels? This is a clear sigh of self-promotion and real narcissists won't lose this opportunity.
So, are you a narcissist on social media or do you have narcissistic friends?
