- Issued Date
- The purpose of this study is to find out the behavior characterization of internet addicts and non-addicts. After conducting surveys about the internet use and addiction of the high school students both boys and girls living in Chonnam Province, We study the behavior characteristics of addicts and non-addicts groups. The criteria to distinguish internet addicts and non-addicts we used was the one suggested by Young(1996). We also add more survey questions to seek the behavior characteristics of internet addicts and non-addicts.
Applying Young's criteria, we found that 89 persons(70.1%) were non-addicts and 38 persons(29.9%) were addicts in a total of 127 boys. In the case of girls, there were 61 non-addicts(83.6%) and 12 addicts(16.4%) of 73 persons. It was seen that the lower the grade, the higher the addiction rate. According to the collected data about where one uses the internet, 90% of the addiction groups use the internet at home. So the attention of parents to their children is required. In the purposes of using the internet, in case of the addiction groups, games were the highest and the non-addiction groups, exchanging messages and communities were the highest. The education on the information ethnic seems to be helpful in terms of building the abilities to control the internet usages.
From these results, we can see how serious the internet addiction is. In preventing, it will be effective to educate the adolescence about the prevention of the internet addiction and building of the information ethnic. Accordingly there should be some devices on the internet practical usages as well as searches for various accessing methods. And also, it is necessary to provide a consulting center when professional helps can be offered to come out of addiction. In addition to these, we suggest that some educational programs such as internet information searching contest, club activities should be offered at school to prevent the internet addiction.
