American scientists conducted a study on people’s phone addiction. Research has revealed that people don’t use smartphones so intensely just because of addiction, and they use smart devices to avoid their thoughts.

With the widespread use of mobile phones, a new kind of addiction has emerged in all of us. Smartphones, in particular, have become unobtrusive since the moment they appeared. Researchers agree that this habit of people is an addiction. Scientists from the University of Virginia looked at this addiction caused by smart devices from another perspective.

Researchers at the University of Virginia believe that using smartphones for so long cannot be explained by addiction alone. Researchers, to escape the thoughts of people using smartphones determined.

Timothy Wilson and his team of social psychologists at the University of Virginia allowed people to sit in a room without any distracting objects to investigate the hypothesis of “avoidance of thought”.

The people who participated in the study were left alone with their thoughts for 15 minutes in a room free of distracting objects such as smartphones, pens or paper. The people who stayed in the room for 15 minutes described their time as boring and unappealing.

The researchers repeated the experiment by making a change. This time, a shock device was left on the table in the room. 27 percent of women who spent 15 minutes in the room with the shock device, 67 percent of men found it unbearable to stay alone with their thoughts that shocked them with the shock device. One man even shocked him 190 times in 15 minutes.
