Nobody Likes Your Selfies More Than You

You really are your #1 fan. Turns out we’ve all been overrating the hotness of our selfies.

Thanks to something known as self-favoring bias, you are more likely to think you’re attractive in selfies vs. pictures of you taken by someone else. This is because you have more control over your appearance in a selfie. You’re going to hold the camera at the exact angle that hides all your insecurities, and emphasizes your favorite features. Whereas everyone else will probably see plain old you, no matter the angle at which you hold the camera. In addition to no one really caring whether or not you take hot selfies, people are more likely to think you’re narcissistic when you frequently post selfies on social media.

No one decides if you’re hot based on a selfie. So if you’re thinking: “This is the one! I’ve finally taken the hottest selfie I can. I’ll send it to Chris and he’ll finally think I’m cute!” – think again. Selfies are like campaigning for office. No one is going to change their vote on your hotness based on selfies. If they know you in person, they have already decided if they wanna get with you or not. Selfies are merely campaign reminders for who to keep in your rotation of 3am text disasters.

Apparently there’s a whole website for dog and cat selfies. What a time to be alive.

Update: I visited DogCatSelfie.com. Poor web design. 2/10.
