You may scroll past everyone else’s selfies, but you know that you definitely post a seriously killer selfie every now and then. We’re all guilty of it, but hey, we all deserve to snap a quick pic on days where we’re feeling extra good about ourselves. Now, take a moment to think about what your selfies usually look like. Do you have the same pose in every one that you take or do you switch it up a bit for your followers? Any way you do it, you may be wondering what your selfie face says about you. It turns out, your go-to selfie face reveals a lot.

You may think selfies are all fun and games, but there has actually been research done to study what your selfie face says about you. And luckily, we’ve got all of the answers that you need. According the research published in Computers In Human Behavioryour selfies portray who you are as a person not just physically but also your unique personality traits. The research shows that selfies cue your personality traits when it comes to how open you are, and that your followers can make consistent judgements about you just from viewing your selfies.

A) Sexy, straight face 

How do you approach the art that is taking a selfie? Your straight smoldering face actually says a lot about you. Certain personality cues are revealed if you’re one of the ones that choose to keep it cool and shy away from smiling, or shy away from showing any emotion at all in your selfie. This go-to selfie face shows that you’re more of a secretive person, and you’re not always so easy to read. Simply put, this pose shows that you’re a bit guarded and don’t necessarily want everyone to see exactly how you’re feeling. The straight face pose also acts as a mature sexy pose– but not as flirtatious as the classic duck face.

B) Smiley, happy face 

Honestly, you’re a ray of sunshine if you choose to grin for a selfie. Odds are, you’re a positive and uplifting person if you don’t hesitate for even just a second about smiling for the camera. You certainly don’t let the little things in life get you down and you always look on the bright side, no matter what the situation is at hand. Unlike posing with a straight face, you’re an open book when flashing a smile for a selfie.

C) Flirty, duck face

You’re a flirtatious fun person if you love posing with a duck face when taking a selfie. This go-to pose definitely means that you enjoy being the center of attention, and that you’re an all-around people person. Much like those who smile for the camera, your duck face also means that you’re an open book and enjoy getting to know those around you on a deeper, more intimate level.

It turns out that many of your traits and habits say a lot about you– much more than you may think. Luckily, we’ve got all of the tips you need to help you figure out things like what your hair color says about you and what your handwriting says about you.
