You know how when you look at some d-bag's over-the-top selfie and you think, "He must think he's pretty hot." Well, it turns out he does think he's hot. Like, really hot.
A study published in Social Psychological and Personality Science and conducted by the University of Toronto Department of Psychology found that people who take selfies tend to overestimate how good they look in these photos, meaning all those selfie-taking 6's think they're total 10's.
The study analyzed selfie-takers' and non-selfie-takers' perceptions of their own photos, with the researchers showing the same photos to a group of neutral outsiders. In the end, they found that while both selfie-takers and non-selfie-takers showed the same amount of narcissism, only selfie-takers tended to think they looked hotter and more likable in their own selfies than in photos taken by others. In addition, selfie-takers overestimated their level of attractiveness and likability in these photos, when compared to the opinions of neutral outsiders.
