Scientists Link Selfies To Narcissism, Addiction & Mental Illness (Of Course, Let me first take a Selfie!)

The growing trend of taking smartphone selfies is linked to mental health conditions that focus on a person’s obsession with looks.

According to psychiatrist Dr David Veal: “Two out of three of all the patients who come to see me with Body Dysmorphic Disorder since the rise of camera phones have a compulsion to repeatedly take and post selfies on social media sites.”

“Cognitive behavioural therapy is used to help a patient to recognise the reasons for his or her compulsive behaviour and then to learn how to moderate it,” he told the Sunday Mirror.

A British male teenager tried to commit suicide after he failed to take the perfect selfie. Danny Bowman became so obsessed with capturing the perfect shot that he spent 10 hours a day taking up to 200 selfies. The 19-year-old lost nearly 30 pounds, dropped out of school and did not leave the house for six months in his quest to get the right picture. He would take 10 pictures immediately after waking up. Frustrated at his attempts to take the one image he wanted, Bowman eventually tried to take his own life by overdosing, but was saved by his mom.

“I was constantly in search of taking the perfect selfie and when I realized I couldn’t, I wanted to die. I lost my friends, my education, my health and almost my life,” he told The Mirror.

The teenager is believed to be the UK’s first selfie addict and has had therapy to treat his technology addiction as well as OCD and Body Dysmorphic Disorder.

Part of his treatment at the Maudsley Hospital in London included taking away his iPhone for intervals of 10 minutes, which increased to 30 minutes and then an hour.

“It was excruciating to begin with but I knew I had to do it if I wanted to go on living,” he told the Sunday Mirror.

Public health officials in the UK announced that addiction to social media such as Facebook and Twitter is an illness and more than 100 patients sought treatment every year.

Selfies frequently trigger perceptions of self-indulgence or attention-seeking social dependence that raises the damned-if-you-do and damned-if-you-don’t spectre of either narcissism or very low self-esteem,” said Pamela Rutledge in Psychology Today.

The big problem with the rise of digital narcissism is that it puts enormous pressure on people to achieve unfeasible goals, without making them hungrier. Wanting to be Beyoncé, Jay Z or a model is hard enough already, but when you are not prepared to work hard to achieve it, you are better off just lowering your aspirations. Few things are more self-destructive than a combination of high entitlement and a lazy work ethic. Ultimately, online manifestations of narcissism may be little more than a self-presentational strategy to compensate for a very low and fragile self-esteem. Yet when these efforts are reinforced and rewarded by others, they perpetuate the distortion of reality and consolidate narcissistic delusions.

The addiction to selfies has also alarmed health professionals in Thailand. “To pay close attention to published photos, controlling who sees or who likes or comments them, hoping to reach the greatest number of likes is a symptom that ‘selfies’ are causing problems,” said Panpimol Wipulakorn, of the Thai Mental Health Department.

The doctor believed that behaviours could generate brain problems in the future, especially those related to lack of confidence.

The word “selfie” was elected “Word of the Year 2013″ by the Oxford English Dictionary. It is defined as “a photograph that one has taken of oneself, typically with a smartphone or webcam and uploaded to a social media website”.

1. The Gym Selfie (Because the checkin isn’t enough.)

3. The Car Selfie AKA The Seatbelt Selfie (You LITERALLY got in the car and thought, “I look so good today, I better let everyone know before I put this thing in drive and head to my shift at the Olive Garden.”)

Woman Crush Wednesday – Eva Green (Penny Dreadful) #WCW

eva-green-hairstyles2

Eva Gaëlle Green born 5 July 1980) is a French actress. Green started her career in theatre before making her film debut in 2003 in Bernardo Bertolucci‘s controversial film The Dreamers. Green achieved international recognition when she appeared in Ridley Scott‘sKingdom of Heaven (2005), and portrayed Vesper Lynd in the James Bond film Casino Royale (2006). In 2006, Green was awarded the BAFTA Rising Star Award. Since 2006, Green has starred in independent films Womb (2010), Perfect Sense (2011), and Cracks (2011). She has also appeared in the television series Camelot (2011), and playedAngelique Bouchard in Tim Burton‘s big-screen adaptation of Dark Shadows (2012). In 2014, she played Artemisia in 300 sequel, 300: Rise of an Empire, and will star as Ava Lord inFrank Miller‘s and Robert Rodriguez‘s Sin City sequel, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.

01 02

In 2007, Green was voted the 6th sexiest movie star of all-time by Empire magazine. Empire also listed her character, Vesper Lynd as the 9th sexiest female character in cinema history. In 2011, Los Angeles Times Magazine listed Green at No. 18 for their 50 most beautiful women in film. In 2012 she was listed no.57 in AfterEllen Hot 100. In April 2012, Shalom Life ranked her Number 2 on its list of “the 50 most talented, intelligent, funny, and gorgeous Jewish women in the world”

03 04

Green considers herself nerdy: “When people first meet me, they find me very cold. I keep myself at a distance, and I think that’s why I’m so drawn to acting. It allows me to wear a mask”. She lives alone and, by her own account, leads a low-key life when she’s not working. When asked in an interview what would people be surprised to find out about her, she responded “I guess people would be surprised to find out that I am a bit of a homebody. I do not like clubbing or going to wild parties. After a day of shooting, I love to come home and relax by the fire with a glass of wine and a good book. Boring, huh?”

05 06

Eva is our #WCW because she is beautiful, smart and sexy, wrapped in a super bad-ass actresses. She plays these wonderful female roles where she has as much power as the men in the film. She is willing to express herself physical and spirtually in each role. Plus, she doesn’t mind nudity because she has so much confindence in herself. That’s the sexist thing I believe in women if they can be confident about themselves. Eva Green has plenty of confidence in herself which you can see her swagger. You can check her new show Penny Dreadful on Showtime every Sunday night.

On_The_Internet_No_One_Knows_You_re_A_Cat

By John D. Aguon @lttlgnt

So much has happened.

SO much has happened since my last entry.

I’ve been on crazy whirlwind, riding up and down life’s proverbial roller coaster. I love it though. I owe a lot to the masses. Seeing all of your updates. Sally got a new job. Bob got married.  There are People moving on up, even some of you to the east side. Seriously though, I owe a lot to the lives people broadcast online. For some reason I tune in. I see all of your success whether it is exaggerated or not. It fuels my gas guzzling fire! Well, I’ve been on the opposite side of the spectrum. John can’t afford rent. John needs a job. John could be a massive failure.

It was a dark place.

Wtf-internet

Very dark and I owe it to the Internet.

What are we doing?  Sometimes I wonder what my life would be without the World Wide Web, constantly updating my every move. Trying to live up to the Facebook standard of living. Don’t get me wrong; I’m the first to admit that I LOVE broadcasting my whereabouts. The Burger joint I claimed to have found. The hike or if you’re going up Runyon, the gradual uphill walk I conquered. You can’t forget the infamous “ I took a picture with a celebrity, and we’re now best friends” Photo.

aaron-paul-photobomb

But, the other day I realized something. I was having just a normal bad day, with a normal headache with a side of normal laziness, when I pulled out my iPhone and started scrolling through my photos. I found a sick picture from a few weeks back, of an awesome time I had with some friends, and of course with a flattering angle (you know high angle make you look skinnier). I filtered the picture, typed in some positive caption and went on to live my normal bad day.

Soon enough.

Blah blah blah, “likes your photo.”

So and so, “likes your photo.”

Finally, I realized. No one REALLY knew how I was living my life. No one knew that I lost my apartment, I lost my job, and I lost my dignity.

FunnyPart-com-the_internet_has_spoken

Once again, I owe that to the Internet.

But, it’s not all a shit storm. It propelled me to actually living the life I project for everyone to see. I hit the pavement. I got on my feet again and found an incredible apartment and I’m now working for a place where I can say my career can finally grow.

I have to say; there is a light that Facebook, Instagram and other social media sites shines. Seriously though, throughout my life I’ve met some interesting people and rather than drifting apart through the distance and the years, Its pretty awesome to know that there’s a place where I can see little glimpses of your daily lives, triumphs, and families.

I appreciate you all.

I owe it to the Internet.

5 Reasons- Why to Watch Silicon Valley on HBO

hbo-silicon-valley

 WRITTEN BY: RYAN FU @FU_BEATZ

Silicon Valley is an American sitcom that centers on six programmers who are living together and trying to make it big in Silicon Valley.The series premiered April 6, 2014, on HBO.The first season will consist of eight episodes.

After Mike Judge graduated from UCSD with a degree in physics, his first job was as a programmer working on the F-18 fighter. In 1987 he moved to the Silicon Valley region of Northern California and joined Parallax, a startupvideo card company with about 40 employees. Disliking the company’s culture and his colleagues (“The people I met were like Stepford Wives. They were true believers in something, and I don’t know what it was”), Judge quit after less than three months, but the experience gave him the background to later create a show about the region’s people and companies.

I got to watch the first episode of Silicon Valley last Sunday night in which I was quite impressed by the shows writing and the strong performances by the cast. I think it is a great addition to an already strong lineup for HBO, which includes Game of Thrones and VEEP.

Please check out are link to our Game of Thrones Review:

Game of Thrones: Two Swords (My Little Pony) 

Here are my Top Five Reasons you should watch Silicon Valley:

Rn_SFSKFT

5Fucking Nerds!!! I love smart but socially awkward people, it just makes for funny television. Silicon Valley is like the uncool version of the movie Social Network but that’s why it is so funny! It’s about a group of guys who live mediocre lives, who are trying to make it in the big leagues. Plus, I love computer jargon like H.T.M.L, Codec, compression, and binary numbers because it gives me “Nerd Wood”. I’m not afraid to admit that I’m a bit of a nerd or geek when it comes to anything towards computers. Also, like all nerd groups that came before them, they are so lovable and you want them to succeed. This leads me to the next reason…

Mark-Zuckerberg

4- Silicon Valley inspires you to want to achieve in anything in life or become something great. To watch people, who could be honestly our own friends trying to make it big, is very inspiring. It makes you reevaluate your own life in order to become more successful. You can tell someone how to become successful but when the person actually sees how it can be done, they are better motivated to achieve it. Visualization. This leads me to the next reason why most men want to be successful: Hot Chicks.

amanda-crewAmanda-Crew1

3 – The very cute and sexy Monica, played by Amanda Crew, she was the chick in that sex romp, teen movie called Sex Drive, which wasn’t that bad mainly because Amanda was so smoking hot in the movie. This is a great reason to watch Silicon Valley, so you can watch the sexy but very smart Amanda Crew walking around in tight outfits trying to help out these young men succeed in their innovation.

Silicon-Valley

2- I’m pretty sure you guys are well aware that most people in Silicon Valley are highly intelligent and self-educated. They can work in the top tech firms in the country. But it takes a lot of balls to go decide to not work of anyone and be your own boss. To create something that is yours and make it highly valuable to a point where companies want to buy you out, but you won’t because this is your baby. You want to build it yourself and see it through. This show is about opportunity and the endless possibilities if you just believe in yourself. Which leads me to the number one reason to watch the show: T.J. Miller.

silicon-valley-hbo-noodles-beard-man-dude

1- T.J. Miller plays Erlich, owner of the “incubator” where the rest of the group work on their projects. He plays a very confident character where he also mentors other people on how to successful like him. He tries so hard to be cool with the rest of the dudes it just comes off as funny. T.J. is a hilarious stand up comedian and he is hysterical on the show.

“This is Silicon Valley, not…[pauses to search on an iPad]…Paris, Texas. That’s where Campbell’s Soup is.”

Check out Silicon Valley every Sunday night on HBO.
