Self-portrait photographs can express different aspects of the author’s personality. In particular, selfies magnify difficulties with the mind-body connection, self-creation fantasies and a felt need to remove any mediation involved in the creation of a personal image. The impulse to publish selfies does not stem from a need for real relation-ships, but rather serves narcissistic self-confirmation. When a person takes and shares a selfie, she avoids mentalisation and does not orient towards her internal world, but instead focuses on self-mirroring the posing person. Selfies not only reveal the variable shades of the author’s narcissism, depending on the ty-pology of the selfie, but can also reveal signs of certain schizoid, dependent, histrionic, avoidant, and sometimes even borderline personality traits.
