AMERICAN PSYCHIATRIC ASSOCIATION MAKES IT OFFICIAL: ‘SELFIE’ A MENTAL DISORDER

By adobochron on  March 31, 2014

Chicago, Illinois - The American Psychiatric Association (APA) has officially confirmed what many people thought all along: taking ‘selfies’ is a mental disorder.

The APA made this classification during its annual board of directors meeting in Chicago. The disorder is 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.

APA said 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

According to the APA, while there is currently no cure for the disorder, temporary treatment is available through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).  The other good news is that CBT is covered under Obamacare.

This is unwelcome news for Makati City in the Philippines, especially for its mayor, Junjun Binay, son of the incumbent vice president.  Makati was recently named selfie capital of the world by Time Magazine. The mayor even organized a ticker tape parade after his city was bestowed the rare honor.

 


I always thought it was kinda a mental state of OCD to post images of oneself all the frigging time.

 

A clear sign of insecurity perhaps


The only selfie i will ever post will be my orbituary....not on facebook tho....hahaahahah

What about taking photos of your penis and sending it? Is that considered a selfie or we are particular about just other body parts?

i think taking selfies of a group is ok. U and your wife etc.

If u take selfies of yourself alone doing things. U are at least a narcissist.

i think the condition refers to people to takes selfie several times everyday and share in their social networking portal.

 

Once a blue moon, taking a selfie is alright to me. They have that in the old days with self timer camera for those who goes holiday alone (another condition?).
