Now, for the first time, you can actually test yourself to see if you are a selfie addict using Medindia’s Selfie Addiction Calculator. A mobile phone with camera plus a compulsive desire to photograph yourself and post it on social media is an addictive combination, sometimes deadly.
If a person is clicking too many self-photos or selfies each day and posting them on social media, the person could be suffering from selfitis, a modern day mental condition that needs medical attention. Selfie addicts, who are self-confessed attention seekers, do it to boost their confidence, improve their mood, store memories and to feel accepted in groups.


Medindia’s Selfie Addiction Calculator is a quick screening assessment tool based on a Selfie obsession behavior scale to take stock of the condition. Take the test to check if you are affected by selfitis.


Selfie Addiction Calculator is a questionnaire consisting of 20 statements.  Please read through each statement and decide if you Agree or Disagree with each statement.
