In the modern day world today where almost everything can be linked to social media, website BestComputerScienceSchools.net created an infographic to explain exactly how our current use of social media leads us to becoming more and more self-centered.
The infographic entitled, ‘Selfie Syndrome – How Social Media is Making Us Narcissistic,’ outlines our social media habits and relates them to a self-centered pattern of self-fulfillment and personal validation.
The chart starts off with illustrations to demonstrate the various signs of narcissism like unilateral listening, self-preoccupation and the tendency to being above rules. It also features the negative effects of social media, which include addiction, depression, hypochondriasis or narcissistic personality disorder.
The chart then goes on to analyze the effects of popular platforms like Facebook and Twitter.
