SOCIAL MEDIA EFFECTS ON PERCEIVED NARCISSISM AND SELFISHNESS 3
Technological advancement on social media platforms has increased the venues on which individuals express their various ideas, thoughts to the general public through videos and even photos. This process is advantageous to some people as they get knowns, get some payment from the videos watching by people o platforms such as YouTube, etc., and even make one develop narcissistic traits. This is selfishness that is associated with self-admiration. When carrying out the study, the main theme was examining how gender difference influences an individual self-fishiness behavior. The other study evaluated the various effects of styles of pictures and what different viewers perceive them. The study involved about 141 individuals for the Florida International University, where 68 were males, and the rest were for the female gender.
The assessment was done by using questionnaires that were noted to have been divided into various sections that involved a lady named Emma. The SPSS was also used in carrying out analysis of the dependent and the independent variables such as the frequency of Emma’s posts, the professional, selfie, and many more, respectively. The Tukey post hoc had the information that Emma liked posting much of her the selfies which associated with her all-time sarcastic behavior. In study two, which involved examining the gender influences, it was noted to incorporate the females’ relationship against the males, which was on an independent variable basis. About approximately 751 students of the FIU were involved in the study. The types of questionnaires used in gathering the information were the online qualatric questionnaires that were best suited for them. from the results obtained after analysis, Chi-square depicted that there was much more significance between gender and narcissism behavior. On the other hand, ANNOVA results showed that the correlation between photo styles and gender was significant, thus a difference between both genders on the photo styles. In conclusion, both studies showed that narcissistic behaviors are portrayed by taking selfies where females like it most than males.
