Hey , you gagers , are the users with their own pic up narcissistic?

I mean, why do you put you own photo up on here. Is it because you are narcissistic? I imagine you all having pix of yourselves all arond your home. True or false?

  • No, not at all. As time goes on in a small community like GaG, it's nice to put a face to a username, helps interact and build certain relationships with users.

    I don't even have a single picture of myself hanging around my house or room.

  • No, it's nice to put a face on a comment, makes it feel like you're interacting with someONE. Opinions where someone has an obviously real pic carry more weight than anons to me. One step further are those voice questions, it's even more fun putting a voice to a person.

  • No its not narcissism. A lot of people have never been able to see something genuinely beautiful in their lives, especially considering all the fucked up shit happening in the world today. So i figured I'd put a pic up of me in order to give people that experience. So in short the reason i put my pic up is not for me, but for you

  • For me its a big achievement cuz Im quite insecure on how the way how I look. Before I knew this site I only showed pictures to my family so this helped me a lot :)

  • In tech and computing, an "avatar" is a graphical representation of a user: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Avatar_(computing)

    I think it's fair to say that photographs are the best possible representation of someone in a two-dimensional digital graphical user interface like this.

    I get why some people don't want to expose themselves, but the ones that do have a profile picture here are not necessarily narcissistic. ;)

  • No, no photos of myself all over my house. I like this particular photo, and I do not see a need to hide behind an image. Besides when I tell people online that I study and practice sword play many do not believe me, so a photo of me with a sword in my hand (by the way that particular sword is an original civil war officers weapon and I have others)

  • I think most of us just to it for identification purposes not any kind of self promotion - Be honest if it was self promotion would I put up a bald middle aged man.

  • Probably. You have have to be a bit narcissistic to be standing around looking in a mirror and then say, man I really need to take a picture of myself... Hold on let me take 100. :D I don't mind pictures being taken of me, and I take them on occasion if someone asks me, but if no one asks me I don't even think about it.

  • nar·cis·sism (när′sĭ-sĭz′əm)
    n.
    1. Excessive preoccupation with or admiration of oneself. See Synonyms at conceit.
    2. A personality disorder characterized by self-preoccupation, need for admiration, lack of empathy, and unconscious deficits in self-esteem.
    3. Erotic pleasure derived from contemplation or admiration of one's own body or self, especially as a fixation on or a regression to an infantile stage of development.

    Please do explain simply having a picture of oneself up to give a face to a name on a q&a site leads to your concluding that these people possess extremely high levels of self-esteem?

  • Yes. I decorate my home in large, lavish paintings of my nudes. I plaster selfies all over my refrigerator. I give my guests parting gifts of head shots I take bi-monthly.

    My bills? Paid via signed portraits of my beautifully sculpted face.

      ** cats can't dive down there

    • @Cosytoasty i forgot 'catfish' fish actually existed, right answer but wrong method haha :D

  • No. I just think it makes an opinion more personal. I tend to take the opinions from people who have real pictures up more serious as well and I think a lot of people agree. You can see what kind of person said something like that. It gives your opinion credibility.
    About the pictures of myself at home, I just got a new profile picture. I made this one yesterday for my curriculum vitea but couldn't use this picture because I look naked when the picture is cropped lol. So I used it for gag.

  • I don't think it's narcissistic, when u have a profile it's normal to put a face to the name or whatever. And no the only pictures of me in my home are baby pictures and that is because i live with my parents. Though, if i wanted to have pictures of me or my friends that would be okay too.
