When you choose a profile picture for Facebook, what are you thinking?
Most of us want to make sure that we look as pretty as possible and also that the picture looks nice.
You might not realize it now, but the photo that you choose says a whole lot about your personality. In fact, you can tell just what type of person you are just by looking at your picture!
According to research from the University of Pennsylvania, it’s ridiculously easy to figure out what someone’s personality traits are based on their social media pictures.
1. Photos that don’t include your face
Often, people choose photos that are not actually of them. For example, they might choose a celebrity, an animal or even something obscure like their car or a sunset. These people are supposedly more neurotic than the rest of us.
2. Colorful group photos
If you tend to have loads of group pictures of you and your besties, that also says something interesting about you, especially if the pictures are bad quality. People who use these photos tend to be quite extroverted.
3. Filtered photos
If you spend ages editing your picture before you put it online, it means that you are a conscientious person. The fact that you control your public image so much could mean that you are also careful and vigilant.
4. Posing with an object
If you pose with an object like your car or a book, it could mean that you are open to new experiences. These photos also tend to be of the highest quality too, since the person spends time getting the perfect photo!
