Scientists from the Munich Ludwig-Maximilian University found evidence that most people, as it turns out, gives me no pleasure to look at other people’s selfies.
Moreover, the regular practice of photography itself can have a negative impact on the human psyche.
As found Sarah Diefenbach and Lara Christoforakos, a survey of 238 people, 77% take a selfie at least once a month, and 49% receive such photos at least once a week. 90% of respondents admitted that they perceive other people’s self portraits as self-promotion, but for his own selfie so are only 46%.
Also, more than half of the respondents expressed the view that imprinting itself on the camera negatively affects self-esteem, and can create a superficial misconception about someone. Thus, psychologists have found, most people like to do selfie, but they don’t like to look at other people’s pictures.
The survey involved residents of Austria, Germany and Switzerland, so that it can have a “Eurocentric” bias. Other cultures have recognized, Diffenbach and Christoforakos may have different attitude to self, which requires more thorough investigation. With the work of scientists can be found in the journal Frontiers in Psychology.
