Where are they getting the money? I thought we were borderline great depression and all that. A depression might be healthy for us as far as getting our priorities and values back in order. Selfies while shucking broom corn would be good for the soul!
Darwinism will win out! I've seen several of these self-absorbed idiots, faces buried in their phones, walk into oncoming trucks, cars, bikes, walls (whaaaa that wall hit me). Natural selection is a wondrous thing!
To examine the association between selfies and personality, Fox and Rooney used data from a nationally representative sample of 1,000 men between 18 and 40 years old.1 Participants completed personality questionnaires assessing the dark triad and self-objectification.
They were asked how many selfies they had taken and posted on social media in the last week, as well as how many other photos they had posted and how much time they spent on social media sites. They were also asked to rate how often they used various methods to make themselves look better in pictures, such as cropping, filtering, and re-touching.
Results showed that both narcissism and self-objectification were associated with spending more time on social networking sites, and with more photo-editing. Posting numerous selfies was related to both higher narcissism and psychopathy, controlling for the overall number of other types of photos posted. Machiavellianism was unrelated to photo behavior when taking these other variables into account.

HAHAHAHA like Millennials are the only self obsessed losers out there. I think every generation has its large group of vanity whores. Stop trying to act like this behavior is a new thing.
