today i learned – thurs 20th dec 2018

you know how everyone loves taking selfies? well, it turns out it may not be all that healthy 😳

#tdil that selfitis is now a genuine mental condition 😳

i’m not really sure what that says about the current state of the human race πŸ™ˆ like, we now have a medical condition that revolves around take pictures of ourselves πŸ™ƒ (also, we say ‘like’ a lot πŸ˜‚)

but yeah, after starting as a spoof in 2014, nottingham trent university and thiagarajar school of management in india have named selfitis a legit thing.

it refers to people that are continually compelled to post pictures of themselves on faceballs, tweeter and instaspam πŸ“Έ

further than just naming selfitis an actual thing, they even developed a ‘selfitis behavioural scale’ that determines the severity of the condition πŸ€“

there are three main levels:

1). borderline: taking photos of yourself at least three times a day but not posting them online.

2). acute: taking photos of yourself at least three times a day and posting each on the interwebnet

3). chronic: going full kim k, taking pictures of yourself around the clock and posting them online more than six times.

the source that i used to learn this was actually super long, so i’m not going to go through it all here πŸ˜… if you’d like to read it, then it’s ->here<-

it basically goes on to say that people suffering from selfitis should seek professional help … because, you know, taking photos of yourself constantly for external approval isn’t an ideal way to live your life 😳

so yeah, in all seriousness, if you do think you might have a problem, deffo go see someone!!

anyway, i think that’ll do us today 😊 it’s been emotional peeps πŸ‘πŸ»
