Researchers from Baylor University and Seton Hall University have found that cell phone addiction, as well as instant messaging, is driven by impulsivity and materialism. For the study, researchers analyzed questionnaire results from nearly 200 college students. The questionnaire was meant to assess the students’ levels of impulsivity and materialism, as well as possible addiction to instant messaging and cell-phone use. Experts say cell phone addiction is usually characterized by feelings of withdrawl if you don’t have your phone, compulsive checking of the phone, and using it to feel good. (Huffington Post)
