Selfie: How We Became So Self-Obsessed and What It's Doing to Us | Will Storr
36 posts | 2 read | 1 reading | 4 to read
'Fascinating' Guardian'Brilliant' Evening Standard'Electrifying' Financial Times'So interesting I literally couldn't put it down' Sunday TimesWe live in the age of the individual. We are supposed to be slim, prosperous, happy, extroverted and popular. This is our culture's image of the perfect self. We see this person everywhere: in advertising, in the press, all over social media. We're told that to be this person you just have to follow your dreams, that our potential is limitless, that we are the source of our own success. But this model of the perfect self can be extremely dangerous. People are suffering under the torture of this impossible fantasy. Unprecedented social pressure is leading to increases in depression and suicide. Where does this ideal come from? Why is it so powerful? Is there any way to break its spell? To answer these questions, Selfie by Will Storr takes us from the shores of Ancient Greece, through the Christian Middle Ages, to the self-esteem evangelists of 1980s California, the rise of narcissism and the selfie generation, and right up to the era of hyper-individualistic neoliberalism in which we live now. It tells the extraordinary story of the person we all know so intimately - our self.As featured on Russell Brand's Under The Skin podcast.

I promised my fabulous team leader @julesG that if she did this, I would, too. So, here‘s a post-spin class, post-shower, 4th-cup-of-coffee, #nomakeupnofilter selfie. I almost always have on makeup so this is way out of my comfort zone, but feels good. Thanks for always challenging us, @wanderinglynn ! 🤗

Kaye You have beautiful brown eyes. My favorite eye color. And I have a question : did it hurt when you got your lip pierced ? 5mo
fandom_hellspawn99 @kaye YES 😂😂😂 my eyebrow I've had to do it twice, didn't even touch the pain of my lip. But I've heard all oral piercings can be super painful, and aftercare is soooo difficult. It was worth it though 5mo

I like reading Will Storr‘s books. He‘s endlessly curious about modern life and culture and goes looking for answers everywhere. This book is about the self esteem movement that originated in California and spread everywhere. It was in classrooms all over America and in Europe. But it went too far and produced a generation of narcissistic young people. And it may have helped to give us Donald Trump (though I doubt it).

I love seeing all the selfies! This is one of me and my dad, taken at the zoo last weekend. My husband and I took my parents because it's my mom's favorite place, and she got to try out her new scooter. I love how neither of us has any idea where to look.

Some facts about this #friyayintro #selfie submission:

1. I didn‘t have time to check Litsy all day, so didn‘t know we were doing this until I was already in my pjs and no longer presentable.

2. Jack and I love Snapchat filters.

3. I was actually listening to my audiobook while we took this... and I still am!

4. We are glam kitties.

I really hate selfie. I can't smile, if there is a camera.
So this one I took about a month ago, after I went to my favourite booktown. I found some nice books and other bookish stuff. It was a nice day, spending time on my own and return with new books for my lovely Littens. 😊

This is my puppy, Winston! He's not really a puppy anymore because he turns one in a couple weeks. 😭
I almost never take selfies (usually my husband is also in the photo), but my husband knitted the scarf I'm wearing, and my friend from HS made the bandana that Winston is wearing, so I thought that called for a selfie. 😁📸

Sunday night with #Cryptonomicon 😎
Don't try it at home: 900 pages book is the worst choice for a #selfie 😁
There are invisible shelves behind, but I hope the pile of books on the left will pass for a #shelfie 📚
#SisForSeptember is a real fun!
Thanks, @CaliforniaCay!

An interesting, insightful book about our culture of identity, individualism, and narcissism. Storr is an engaging writer and he examines the development of increasingly narcissistic and self-absorbed tendencies, evidenced in our politics (Trump, Brexit), our TV and films, our celebrity culture, and social media. Storr's commentary and historical analysis are smart and interesting.

Here‘s a blurry selfie after my long hot run yesterday.
