Smartphone Addiction and Beyond: Initial Insights on an Emerging Research Topic and Its Relationship to Internet Addiction

Eilish Duke, Christian Montag

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The present chapter considers early insights on some pressing issues in the investigation of smartphone (over)use. More specifically, we consider whether tendencies toward overuse of the smartphone and Internet are related. And, if so, whether the same personality structure represents a vulnerability factor for both kinds of digital addiction. This chapter also identifies some similarities and dif- ferences between Internet and smartphone overuse, beyond the findings from per- sonality psychology. Finally, the chapter provides a short overview of the important relationship between smartphone use, flow experience at work, and productivity issues. This section is followed by a simple behaviorist model, which aims to explain the aetiogenesis of problematic smartphone use. The chapter closes with some easy to implement therapeutic interventions designed to reduce smartphone use in order to live more meaningful lives in the here and now.
