Behavioral Trends: Me, Myself and I

 

Me, Myself & I

 

It’s all about ME and how extraordinary I am. I’m not empathic and caring isn’t my thing. I overestimate my talents and likability. My extreme need for attention and showing-off have never been easier and, ironically, celebrated. Welcome to the era of digital narcissism!
 

SELFIE STICKS

Camera accessories known as ”monopods” have been around since the 1920s, but it was only during the late 2010’s that modernized versions of monopods became ubiquitous under the name of “selfie sticks”. With ranges surpassing 70 cm, the devices aim to show a wider field of view in the photo, allowing users to frame themselves more freely in a shot, even opening the possibility of large group selfies. Enthusiasm for the sticks has been on the rise, but do critics who say they’re a narcissistic scourge on society have a point?

ASOCIACIÓN ALTO AL SECUESTRO (STOP KIDNAPPING ASSOCIATION, MEXICO)

Insecurity in Mexico is a big issue. In this social experiment, this association demonstrated the passiveness of people in front of a crime. Hundreds of people witnessed a kidnapping, and NONE of them interfered, nor even called an emergency number to report it.
