Rejection Sensitivity Questionnaire for Adults, Reflective Functioning Questionnaire, Selfitis Behavior Scale, and Ryff’s Psychological Wellbeing Scale were applied. The findings of the study showed that the fear of rejection is positively associated with selfie posting behavior (r=.072; p<.05) whereas it is negatively associated with psychological wellbeing (r=-.042; p<0.05). Furthermore, the results provide evidence of mentalization being positively related with psychological wellbeing (r=.062; p<.05) and negatively related with selfie posting behavior (r=-.059; p<.05).
