New Personality Disorders Caused By The Internet And How We Can Help

The Internet Is Linked To A Rise In Personality Disorders

The internet has evolved into an ever-present part of our world. This rise in popularity has brought about an increase in the number of personality disorders. These disorders range from mild to very destructive and have not been seen by medical professionals until just the past few years.

One of the disorders labeled ‘Nomophobia’ which is abbreviated from ‘no-mobile-phobia’. This occurs when a mobile phone dies and there is no outlet to recharge it. In some, this can cause a full-on anxiety attack. This disorder has been having increased negative impacts on people’s lives.

Other common personality disorders, especially among young people are Facebook Depression. A study conducted showed depression among young people is directly related to how much time they are on Facebook. One reason for this is the amounts of good news people post making others feel like their lives are not measuring up.

Internet Addiction Disorder is another of the personality disorders showing up and is yet another unhealthy effect from the internet. This is when excessive use of the internet interferes with everyday life. Internet addiction can be attributed to poor coping skills, low self-esteem, and low self-efficacy or one’s belief in their ability to succeed.
