Half of us may be nomophobic at Morton East.

Nomophobia, a rare phobia, is  — an irrational fear of being without your phone or being unable to use your phone for some reason such as the absence of signal or running out of battery power.

According to phycologytoday.com, one in five people would rather go without shoes for a week than take a break from their phone. Also, 65 percent or about 2 in 3 people sleep with or next to their smart phones. Among college students it’s even higher. In a random survey of 111 Morton East Students, 52%  stated that they can go without their phones for at least 3 days.   Showing that nomophobia may be less common here than we think.

    Good to know that the number of students addicted to their phones in MEHS is less than 50%.
