Internet Usage

How many hours do you spend on the internet through out the course of a day? According to Deckers, the amount of usage of the internet does correlate to a person's personality. People who are agreeable, conscientious, and are extroverts spend less time on a computer compared to someone who is the opposite of these traits. Deckers quotes Landers and Lounsbury, "...more introverted, less agreeable, and less conscientious student's engage in higher levels of internet usage." Extroverted student's would rather be out doing physical activities, socializing with friends, or partying while introverted student's stay in their dorm, apartment or home keep to themselves, listen to music, email, shop on the internet for hours or...go on facebook and look at what everyone else is doing for the night.

  1. Char, if this topic interests you, you should know there is a GIS course called "cybercitizenship" taught by Dr. Kraft online. I am taking it now, it is SO interesting and I have learned a LOT about the internet and all of its implications both good and bad. Just an FYI
