Taking “Selfies” is a mental disorder Psychiatrists say

POSTED: 01/21/16 4:48 PM

It has been officially confirmed what many people thought all along: taking ‘selfies’ is a mental disorder.

The disorder is now called “selfitis”, and is defined as the obsessive compulsive desire to take photos of one’s self and post them on social media as a way to make up for the lack of self-esteem and to fill a gap in intimacy.

According to the APA there are three levels of the disorder:

Borderline selfitis : taking photos of one’s self at least three times a day but not posting them on social media
Acute selfitis: taking photos of one’s self at least three times a day and posting each of the photos on social media
Chronic selfitis: Uncontrollable urge to take photos of one’s self round the clock and posting the photos on social media more than six times a day
