mike_d85: You know, I'm starting to get the feeling that I'm the only person on the planet who isn't completely narcissistic.

I have to disagree that selfies are narcissistic. I think the term narcissistic itself is being polluted and diluted. It's just a new facet of modern living, share a photo of yourself with friends, or to friends, for a bit of fun. It's not because you love seeing yourself as much as possible because you're so handsome and sexy, it's just because it's rapidly becoming a normal thing to do.

Perhaps true narcissists are able to blend in and get away with it easier. But they're still easy to spot, because they can't walk past a mirror without stopping.

I don't understand the problem people have with selfies.  No one would have a problem if a friend took a picture of you.  A selfie simply means you have no friends.

Taking 1 or 2 selfies i wouldn't consider narcissistic. There might be an actual reason for a selfie, maybe you are chatting with someone over the internet and want to send them a quick pic or something. I'd call that reasonable.

Taking like 20 or 30... yeah... at some point there is a line that gets crossed from reasonable to insane...

I've never taken a selfie. I've also never cheated on a girlfriend, murdered a person or sung karaoke.
