When you make a pout or duckface

If making a duckface or a pout is your most go to pose, this is not a very good sign. Such people are generally emotionally instable and might even be borderline neurotic.

When you look directly into the camera

This needs no guessing. Only a confident person can look directly into the camera. Hence you score high marks for your confidence and are a great leader.

You are often caught laughing when you take selfies

You love new experiences and never shy away from them. You are a friendly person and a great company. Also, you love to laugh a lot (isn’t it obvious), which means you have a very cheerful personality.
