    If you have taken up to three selfies today, consider yourself nuts. At least, in the eyes of the American Psychiatric Association and other countless, who spark a global movement to recognize that addiction selfies can be indicative of a mental disorder.

    We all know that some person is determined to capture every waking moment with selfie duck face. They even have this one specific aspect of expression, and ready to plaster to be very fancy in the second pulled the iPhone.

    It seems Start on until you look through localized, an endless list of selfies Instagram someone - and even then, it can be more funny than disturbing. Now I'm not one to draw typically concern over trivial matters, especially something that sounds ridiculous, such as addiction to self-portraits.

    Recently, the American Psychiatric Association has already confirmed that eating selfies is a mental disorder, and go so far as to state the term "selfitis". And APA has defined as: "the desire of obsessive-compulsive disorder to capture images of the self and posting on social media as a means to compensate for the lack of self-esteem and to bridge the gap in intimacy", and classified into three levels: the borderline, acute, and chronic.

    How extreme are your selfitis? If you find yourself taking up to three selfies day but not posted on the social media, consider yourself in the border strip.

    If you are posting at least three pictures of yourself every day, and this sharp.

    Finally, if you suffer from cravings can not be controlled to take and add up to six images per day, and congratulations - you have chronic selfitis.



    So if you find yourself snapping away and capture life through the camera lens, as well as a new perspective. Work to reduce the presence and social media, and take in the best moments of life without the need for approval or comment from others. Live your own life - do not live in front of the eyes of others.

    What's hilarious is Beffus would read (or have read to her) this article and laugh at the plebeians it applies to. Her selfies are a job, and part of her purpose and are in no way a sign of psychosis. ;)

    I find selfies bizarre. Do the narcissist that take them really believe that people want to see shitty filtered pics of them.

    Howard once said that people who take them are assholes. He hasn't talked about it much anymore. Poor Howie.

    Same goes for the ones who have pictures of themselves hanging on the walls around the house.
