Are You a “Nomophobe”?
It’s the fear of being without a cell phone contact. I am so this…if I can’t find my cell, I go crazy.
I’m not sure why, growing up I never had one of these – but now I feel I can’t live without it. I always think to myself, how did my parents do without one when I was younger.
A British Study found that about 58% of men and 48% of women suffer from Nomophobia, and an additional 9% feel stressed when their mobile phones are off. The study sampled 2,163 people. Fifty-five percent of those surveyed cited keeping in touch with friends or family as the main reason that they got anxious when they could not use their mobile phones.
