If you have a ton of Facebook friends you could be a Narcissist...

Are you a Facebook addict?
 A study conducted at Western Illinois University suggests that if:
  • You add friends you don't know and feel the need to update your profile every 10 minutes (the world must know when you decide to take a dump, how that "ish" smells, or what you had for breakfast...do you have 1000 FB friends and only know 150 of them?) 
  •  You tag yourself in other "friends" pictures.  
  •  You are constantly directing your FB friends to "sexy" pictures of yourself.  
  •  You are constantly validating your existence on the "About me" section.  
  •  You constantly promote yourself with no products or talent. 
  •  You feel the need to get constant feedback and be the center of attention. 
  •  You constantly use words such as: "I", "me" on your page.  
  •  You thrive on the attention you get on your page as you crave the need to feel good about yourself.  
You could be a "Socially disruptive" narcissist.  There are two categories: grandiose exhibition (GE) or entitlement/explotiveness (EE).  Studies such as  this one are constantly conducted among Facebook users.  It is of the opinion that Facebook encourages narcissistic behaviors.
