Who as far as depends on mobile phones?
How many all - at us habits and any dependences - also you will not list. Everything begins with the rotting West, we are connected then. About eternal habits we will not speak, it will be a question only of the latest. The Internet - dependence we already worried in the sense that several years it takes place to be though not all consider it as a serious reason for concern - and in vain. But it turned out that for a long time it is time to admit one more “ to an addiction “ - painful dependence on cell phones.
In England, on the last researches, about 40% from the interrogated students confirmed that they cannot do without the mobile phone, and 19 percent from those to whom from 18 to 25 years confirmed that they always and everywhere take it with themselves. With Chinese it is even worse: poll of students of university showed presence of dependence on mobile phones at 73,2% of respondents! She is defined as “ the strong, steady requirement or dependence expressed in mentality and behavior of group of the people using the mobile phone (SMS) as the main means of interpersonal communication “. Now, dear, in all honesty: how many hours a day you speak by the mobile phone?
Even superficial supervision over telephone psychosis directs at burdensome reflections. At all tubes, from everywhere - trills of mobile phones and a voice, a voice are pressed to an ear … It is possible to receive all particulars about business transactions, about all relatives and personal problems of their owners, and at times and just to enjoy such " form; interpersonal communication “ by the mobile phone, as “ VV … DD … Mm … “.
Other favourite way to communicate of the personality with the personality is a SMS. The same brothers - Chinese monthly send 200 - 500 SMS: 90% of students - over 100 SMS, 15% - over 500. Terrible figures? I do not think: let`s count the number of own SMS, and we will define, all of us in the majority or already in 15 - percentage minority?
In far Australia research which showed was conducted: “ the mobile phone causes in the person psychological dependence which on the force exceeds dependence of the person on smoking “. And even moreover: “ dependence on the mobile phone is higher than dependence on the computer as from the computer it is possible to leave, and mobile is located in a pocket “. You imagine “ " drug; more feasibly than smoking and life in “ it - a line “?
On the statistics existing in the world, by quantity of calls French - 241 minutes a month, on the second place Danes - the 156th minute are in the lead. British send most of all SMS, but say less therefore they on the third place. And here Germans and Poles talk by mobile phones most less. To define whether you have or your relatives this “ mobile passion “ it is possible without effort: about time which leaves on telephone negotiations; in relation to the cell phone; by the number of the sent SMS and, of course, on accounts. Though just to hide the last the easiest, to especially already independent and taken place citizens.
We will return for a while to Chinese. In spite of the fact that their students are in extreme degree of dependence on the mobile phone, over 10 dollars spend only 12%, 37% for phone - from 5 to 10, and a half of respondents - less than 5 - ti dollars for payment. As for Russians, expenses on mobile communication are in direct dependence on the level of their education: the it is higher, the people are ready to spend more money for communication with each other. At 26% of families - 1 mobile phone, in 40% - two, in 21% - three, in 10% - four, and in 3% - five and more. Judging by polls, the average Russian for an opportunity to be “ in touch “ it is ready to lay out a month no more than 500 rub. that is about 18 dollars. Such among respondents 70% were sociologists, and a half of respondents pays even less, namely - it is slightly more than 10 dollars.
Payment of accounts for the cell phone became important article of personal expenses or the integral paragraph of the family budget for a long time. But more than 60% of respondents declared that for them expenditure for these services are the insignificant item of expenditure, and only a third of respondents admitted that the money spent for telephone negotiations noticeably influences their financial position. Though Russians will not manage to catch up with British and even Americans in this sense: at British calls by cell phones cost 81 dollars a month, and at Americans - in 30 - 40 dollars.
But as we see, accounts can not be the main indicator of a mobilozavisimost - then it will turn out that at Italians with their monthly “ cellular “ the budget in 150 dollars, this dependence already in extreme and inoperable degree. The first criterion at its definition - of course, time and frequency of telephone negotiations. The second - pathological draft infinitely to send the SMS at the slightest pretext. And the third, pay attention: whether the cell phone at first turned into the most favourite toy, and then and into necessity?
And all - as well as in research of any dependence, the attention needs to be paid also to subjective manifestations and to reactions of level of a reflex. The relation to cellular at the person can be checked easily, having just taken it in hand without the permission or to ask to use it. If active manifestation of discontent or attacks of rage, then before you, perhaps, one of mobiloman is available. Pay attention, how often the person touches the mobile phone - if constantly twirls it in a hand or touches in a pocket, then it is necessary to sound alarm. Though if Freud lived up to an era of mobile phones, he would give the last other sense.
In a word, we already in the power of new dependence - and it is the fact. And though it is better to pay for pleasure, than to pay off, but as if from - for “ tubes “ to us not to go broke. Or it is even worse - to learn a fate of 7 percent of British who from - for mobile phones were left not only without work, but also without family.
