As brain research speaker Dr. Tara Marshall says, “it’s no surprise that Facebook status updates show individuals’ identity traits”. This is the reason, scientists at Brunel University chose to do a study which included 555 Facebook users.
The examination found that individuals who are keen on posting their fitness activity, and who always post about their healthy diets that would help them on their physical appearance, these individuals have a tendency to be narcissists.
The review presumes that the main inspiration driving these individuals’ wellness and eating regimen updates is “their need for motivation and approval from the Facebook people group”. What’s more, these statuses to be sure get the most astounding number of likes.
Be that as it may, with regards to the likes, Dr. Tara Marshall notes that in spite of the fact that the outcomes suggest that narcissists’ flaunting does without a doubt accompany more likes and remarks to their statuses, “it may be the case that their Facebook companions graciously offer support while in fact they are detesting such self absorbed showcases”.
The survey measured the ‘Big Five’ personality traits (extroversion, neuroticism, openness, agreeableness and conscientiousness), self-esteem and narcissism.
Clearly, individuals with low self-esteem posted regular updates about their current relationship and their partner; conscientious individuals were more connected with composing more updates about one’s kids; and after that you have the narcissists who posted updates on their accomplishments and eating routine and exercise routine, propelled by the need for consideration and approval from the social media friends.
