    Are unhealthy e3s supposed to be quite insecure under it all? Projecting an air of confidence but insecure? I would wonder about that with the photo thing.

    Is it something like narcissism--in love with a projected image of themselves? Or perhaps, taking a more innocent spin, they are just inspired by the projected image of the self they want to be?

    I do have a couple of narcissistically-inclined friends though (interestingly enough they are type 3s) and they do this. It's head-tilting behaviour. Must ask them why one day.. they don't see anything strange about it.

    Yes, I kind of think that's how they are. If you read about them, it will make sense. What you described would be almost archetypical in some way.

    It's something like that, I think... they're very unaware of their inner selves, and very focused on projecting an image of themselves being a certain way. They're usually even fooling themselves, and the pictures might be part of the facade they've built to keep reminding themselves of who they "are."

    One of the people I noticed it with was a slightly older guy. The montages were a) of a mountain climbing trip he took, and b) a bunch of pictures from when he was younger (and wilder/less respectable looking than he is now!)

    I could kind of understand the mountain climbing thing, because he had pictures on the summit and whatnot, and anyone might have a sense of accomplishment about that. I think it was just the fact that there were several pictures and I think they were all of just him. The pictures of him when he was younger, well, I wondered about that. I sort of had the impression that he had mixed feelings about his past - like, he'd turned his back on it in a lot of ways but still hankered back to it. Or he was trying to recapture his younger years, or that was still kind of how he saw himself, or something...

    With one or two women whose houses I've visited, it was more the model-like pictures scattered about. Professionally done sort of pics. Family photos done in a studio I can totally understand. Pictures of just you, that seems like another thing. I don't really know them well enough to be sure but I think maybe they'd gone through some pretty hard times in their life and were trying really hard to feel better about themselves.

    I have to admit that I have occasionally had a desktop pic with myself on my laptop at home. Always travel pics, that's my excuse. Or sometimes with friends. Maybe I'm the pot calling the kettle black.

    I guess the whole "loads of flattering photos of myself and only myself on my walls" thing just seems both vain/insecure, and openly vain, to me. It's a rather public form of self-absorption, at least when you have anyone over to your house. I mean, though I don't have many up myself, I could more understand having loads of pictures of yourself with family and friends on your walls. But it's the "lots of pictures of just me" thing that confuses me.
    Desktop pics are not as public as avatars. I can understand. Just generally nice to look at. Yes, I can see how posting all those self pictures may bear themselves a self-absorbed trait. Though there may be other reasons. Perhaps depression and clinging to a certain past point they found enjoyable. The roots could show themselves many different interesting things.

    It depends on the person and the circumstances. With other people in the picture, friends and family, I'd say it was a form of connection. Themselves in glamour photos....screams egotisical. Photos with just you in past memories...if I had access to those photos, I would stick them some where, you know like my graduation (from university) photo, photos of when I did theatre productions etc, etc, because those were good memories. Although I wouldn't put them somewhere prominent.
    Currently submerged under an avalanche of books and paper work. I may come back up for air from time to time.

    My mom used to keep a prom picture of me and my ex in the bathroom, which I always found comedic.

    I'd probably point it out to them and ask them why, put them on the spot. Their answer would tell me a lot about them.

    pictures in my apartment are like the ones in my facebook albums.
    me me me me me me me
    every normal man must be tempted, at times,
    to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag,
    and begin slitting throats.

    My boyfriend and I don't have any pictures up at our houses. We don't have facebook. We don't take pictures of each other, or of ourselves when we're together.

    We're just not photogenic. lol

    Except, our college IDs turned out nicely.
