Internet Addiction & Psychopathy

Internet addiction has been named as one of the psychological conditions by the psychological experts in the world. According to them, too much internet use can lead to intensifying depression, anxiety, impulsiveness and short attention span.

In the modern world, people, even youngsters are addicted to internet 24/7. Whether they are using cell phones, tabs or, desktop or laptops, people are using internet all the time. This internet addiction has unfortunately become socially acceptable. On observation it is realized that teenagers show different signs of depression and anger due to this internet addiction.

An internet addiction test (IAT) was performed in Canada to explore the changes experienced after the psychological internet addiction. After the test, it was revealed that internet addictive people are not able to keep themselves away from social networking websites, watching streamed videos and messaging their friends. Such people often fell into dips of depression, lack of attention and poor time management. Internet addiction is both the cause and symptom of psychological problems.

After viewing this research, it is clear that people in Pakistan need to keep a check on their internet addiction activities. Parents need to be especially in charge when it comes to psychological health of their children. Internet is the significant part of today’s education and learning but children should not be trained or taught to become too addictive of it. There should be rules and limitations for the use of internet when it comes to using it for leisure.
