Expert definition of technology addiction: tendency to excessively engage in activities involving the cell phone, Internet, social networking sites like Facebook, etc.
Addictive usage of technology can be assessed by the four Cs:
- Craving (desire to engage in these behaviors)
- Control (experiencing inability to control these behaviors)
- Compulsion (engagement in such behaviors despite there being no need for it)
- Consequences (experienced effects due to engagement in these behaviors).
Do these behaviors concern you? Have you seen these behaviors in yourself or your family? If you want to learn more about technology addiction, please take advantage of the assessments we have.
