Abstract [sv]

Målet med vår studie var att studera sambandet mellannarcissistiska personlighetsdrag och det nya fenomenetsociala medier och deras samband med självkänsla. Vårhypotes var att det finns ett positivt samband mellannarcissistiska personlighetsdrag och aktivitet på socialamedier. I vår internetbaserade enkätundersökning deltog 190universitetsstudenter. Enkäten mätte deltagarnas aktivitet påsociala medier, självkänsla via Rosenbergs Self Esteem Scaleoch narcissistiska personlighetsdrag via NPI-16. Resultatetvisade att personer med mer narcissistiska personlighetsdragvar mer aktiva på sociala medier genom att publicera flerbilder och oftare statusuppdatera på Facebook. Personer medlägre självkänsla var mer aktiva på Twitter och spenderademer tid på sociala medier. Resultatet speglar tidigareforskning inom ämnet, dock är vår studie den första somgjorts med svenska deltagare. Vår slutsats är att vilken typ avaktivitet man utför på sociala medier är viktig vidundersökning av samband med narcissism.

The purpose of our study was to examine the associationbetween narcissistic personality traits and the newphenomenon social media and their association with selfesteem.Our hypothesis was that there would be a positivecorrelation between narcissistic personality traits and socialmedia use. We conducted an online-survey in a social mediagroup with 190 Swedish university students. The surveymeasured social media use, self-esteem using the RosenbergsSelf Esteem Scale and narcissistic personality traits using theNPI-16. The results showed that people with morenarcissistic personality traits more frequently publishedpictures and more often updated their status on Facebook. Italso showed that people with lower self-esteem were moreactive on Twitter and spent more time on social media. Ourresults with Swedish participants were similar to thoseobtained from earlier studies with participants from othercountries. The conclusion is that what kind of activity oneperforms on social media is important when studying theassociation with narcissistic personality traits.
