Let’s learn something new-

Tongue out selfie

It’s really funny but it is also a sign that you are not comfortable in front of the camera. You are a little bit goofy to hide the nervousness in front of the camera. You are allowing your silliness out the social media with a certain amusing style- Julie Carbray, Ph.D., a clinical psychiatry professor in Chicago, IL explains.

Duck Face

Are you always like to capture images with duck face? According to the new research, people capturing this type of photos always tend to be “neurotic”.

Bathroom selfie

A good percentage of young guys today are passionate to capture bathroom selfies. The youngsters who value their privacy do not capture these images but some other feel passionate to capture bathroom images with a great part of physical exposure. Dr. Carbray says, they are exceptionally extrovert rather than expected.

Fitspo selfie

The images with workout dress somehow make you look hot, and the pictures called braggy. But, in reality, you are driven, fit and aggressive to achieve your target by any means. If you are sweating, it looks real. Being with the fake image does not prove your real impression.
