Are you an Instagram addict? Then you're probably HAPPIER: Taking photos of your experiences makes you enjoy them more

  • Over 2,000 people were in nine experiments, some people taking photos
  • Those who took pictures reported a higher level of engagement
  • Researchers said this was linked with more enjoyment of the activity
  • Photo taking 'naturally draws people' more into the experiences

These days it seems people can't complete simple tasks, like having a meal, without getting their phones out to Instagram it.

It would be easy to think our obsession with documenting everything takes away from the enjoyment of the experience itself, but a new study says otherwise.

Researchers have found people taking photos of events actually enjoy them more.

'To the best of our knowledge, this research is the first extensive investigation examining how taking photos affects people's enjoyment of their experiences,' said Kristin Diehl, researcher from the University of Southern California, along with her co-authors.

'We show that, relative to not taking photos, photography can heighten enjoyment of positive experiences by increasing engagement.'

The study was published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology.

The participants who took photos reported being more engaged in the activity.

'One critical factor that has been shown to affect enjoyment is the extent to which people are engaged with the experience,' the authors wrote.

Photo taking helps this because it naturally draws people more into the experience, they said.

Ms Diehl and her team asked over 2,000 people to take part in nine different experiments. In each experiment, individuals were asked to participate in an activity – which ranged from going on a bus tour to eating in a food court.

They were asked to either take photos or not, and completed a survey to show how much fun they had during the task.

In almost every case, people who took photographs reported higher levels of enjoyment.

But the same effect happened in the other extreme, in that photo taking can make an unpleasant experience even worse, the study found.

In one instance, participants went on a virtual safari and observed a pride of lions attacking a water buffalo, which most people did not enjoy.

In that case, the photo takers enjoyed it less than those who saw the same encounter but did not take photos.

Taking photos did not appear to increase enjoyment when the photos interfered with the experience itself, for example having to handle bulky camera equipment.

Diehl and her colleagues also discovered that this effect is not limited to the action of taking pictures. Participants in one experiment reported higher levels of enjoyment after just taking 'mental' pictures as they were going through the experience.

This shows it is the process of taking the photo itself that helps increase enjoyment. This means cameras that record any moment of an experience without the individual's active decision of what to capture are unlikely to have the same effect, according to the researchers.
