A group of psychologists from Nottingham Trent University and Thiagarajar School of Management have recently confirmed that selfitis is real. It is a mental disorder that makes one obsessed with taking selfie. Reports related to selfitis are uploaded to the International Journal of Mental Health Addiction.
According to the researchers, people who suffer from selfitis use selfie in order to increase self-confidence. In addition, they have other motivations such as social competition or following trends. The researchers say, taking selfie can be an addiction that be a sign of other mental health problems, such as low self-esteem.
