It makes no sense of the profile views counter to count the number of visits the profile owner makes to his profile when logged in. So, I am just asking for a clarification: The number of profile views is increasing quite quickly on my profile. So, I suspect that my visits are being counted. Is my feeling true or is just hypothetical?

  • $\begingroup$ @J.M. So, since I use my profile as the place to see how I got extra rep and stuff, it is likely that the counter has counted, self views. $\endgroup$ – user21436 Dec 27 '11 at 7:29

No, when you refresh your profile page, the number of visits will not be increased. This is a normal behavior of profile views in various scripts.
