Move over Freud, there's a new cause for the next-level psychological disorders (Hint: It's not mommy issues). That's right, it's the gadgets that make our lives easier and more connected.
A little too connected, according to the team of psychologists that claim to have discovered iDisorder. Proving that even the world's first smartphone-related mental disorder can't get around the gimmicky iWhatever naming trend.
The study claims that iDisorder affects about 11% of European adults based on a sample size of 1000. iDisorder affects 6% of adults globally. The study also uses another silly name for the disorder: NetBrain.
The greatest factor in whether or not someone exhibits NetBrain/iDisorder symptoms is whether or not they own a smartphone.
