Having a pic of yourself on your profile - narcissistic? watch

    Why do some people seem to think it's such a bad thing to have picture of yourself on your profile?
    I always think it makes things a bit more friendly.

    So, would you deem it vain?

    Lol this^^^^

    Honestly there is nothing wrong with it. At least having a pic allows people to match a face to the post. It's the ones without pics you should worry about (not pointing any elbows ^^^^ )

    having a pic of you as your display picture is 100% fine, what it's supposed to be.... having a folder called "meh....xxxxxx<3" with 100 pics of you posing (half of them looking the same) with the captions "ugly, fat, horrible, gross" is narcissistic and attention seeking, if you really thought you were ugly you wouldn't have a pic.

    I think it depends what kind of picture it is.
    If it's a pic of your face, smiling, or a photo snapped by or with friends, it's fine!
    If it's a pic of you covered in cream with your legs spread open.... Or something else designed to make people go 'OMFG SO SEXYXYX', then I do think it's narcissistic.

    Facebook and TSR are a WASTE of your precious life.

    I don't use facebook and use TSR to get answers to questions, not to show off my looks or personality to the anonymous cyber world.
