Science Says That People Who Watch A Lot Of THIS Kind Of Television Are Vain, Narcissistic Turds

reality-tv-logoWe thought the main reason not to watch reality TV was that you only live once, and it’s best not to waste your time on mind-rotting, soulless garbage.  But it turns out there’s another good reason to switch off.

In research published in the journal Psychology of Popular Media Culture, got 565 TV viewers to fill in a questionnaire about narcissism.  Narcissism is characterised by vain, grandiose behaviour and a lack of empathy for others.  People who watched TV a lot – and those who watch a lot of reality – scored far higher for narcissism.

People who liked news shows tended to score a bit lower.  Interestingly, preference for news was negatively related to narcissism,’ the researchers wrote.

‘One possible explanation for this finding is that individuals who pay attention to the news are also more civically engaged and less individualistic.’

I’d hope that you don’t tune into bullshit like Real Housewives or Vanderpump Rules – but there’s probably at least a few of you who get stuck with it when it’s your girlfriend’s turn to pick what to watch at night. So when she inevitably picks some piece of shit show with scripted drama pretending to be “real” and a slew of “characters” who’ve all had their faces botoxed to Hell and back, make sure to show her this article and tell her to stop being an idiot. Then steal the remote and put on something worthwhile, like Game of Thrones or Breaking Bad.
