You live constantly stuck to your cellphone? Do not switch off your Iphone ever, and bring him even when you go to the bathroom? Then, know that your “syndrome” has a name, and that name is “nomofobia”.
But let’s move on to the details of this curious studio. According to the findings, it appears that as many as 53% of people using mobile phones in Britain would try to anxiety and agitation when they lose their mobile phone, or even when the battery is discharged or there is no network to be able to connect to the internet or phone and send messages.
To suffer from these disorders seems to be mostly males: 58% of men versus 48% of women on a sample of 2,163 people. According to the findings, it appears that the stress levels achieved by people suffering from this disorder may be comparable to the classic “wedding day jitters” or anxiety you feel when going to the dentist.
This is not the first time that we are talking about cell phone addiction. According to the findings from a survey for example, it seems that a staggering number of people would qualify to remain even a week without washing your teeth, but they cannot give up their Iphone for the same number of days.
Having said that, you feel to be suffering from nomofobia? Let us know what you think!
