Computer obsession

Other Names:
Screen addiction

Long-term computer users may become progressively enmeshed in the computer time frame, becoming less and less able to adjust to the temporal norms and standards of traditional clock time. Caught between two distinctly different temporal orientations, they become victims of a new form of temporal schizophrenia. Their adjustment to the accelerated computer time frame renders them increasingly impatient with the slower tempo of everyday life. They become more intolerant of behaviour that is ambiguous, digressive or tangential, avoiding open-ended discourse and any form of inefficiency in communication processes.
