Four emotions invented by the Internet

    Four emotions invented by the Internet

    For better or for worse, in the small details or in aspects
    really significant, the internet has changed our lives. Effects
    negative and positive of the network has been talked about a lot and, without a doubt, will be talked about
    a lot also in the future; but now there are even specialists who speak
    even how the Internet and modern technologies have contributed to
    enrich the world of our emotions.


    1. A
    mild anxiety attack when freezing the chat window in which
    we were having a conversation.
    This feeling of anxiety lasts for a while
    short (between 30 seconds and 1 minute) and as time passes the person does
    asks if there will be a technical problem or
    if the other has simply disconnected. At this point we establish some
    assumptions about what may have happened to the other person and who suffers from
    paranoia can come to imagine real conspiracies. At this point the person can also experiment
    accelerated heart rate and depersonalization. Also, while watching
    the monitor with an expression devoid of concentration, tends to have thoughts
    catastrophic that lead her to doubt her own abilities
    relating to others. 2 Go to
    sudden and irrational in response to reading a @ in Twitter.
    This
    response may not be particularly offensive and even
    it might be frivolous or overly nice, but it awakens one in us
    feeling uncomfortable making us think: "why is this idiot following me?" Sometimes this feeling
    can go wild starting from an avatar
    which is particularly stupid or offensive to us. Obviously, after a few minutes
    the person realizes that his reaction is excessive and totally
    inappropriate and controls it. 3. Anxiety
    widespread caused by sitting in front of the computer for a period
    prolonged without having a specific goal.
    In general
    the person experiencing this sensation holds various windows of the
    browser and several unfinished Word documents. The person switches from an activity
    to the other by spending a few seconds in each of them and experimenting with one
    sort of desperation. During this period that can turn out more or less
    long, the person tends to experience depersonalization, blurred vision,
    anxiety and boredom. Obviously, anyone who has a practical sense of life realizes
    who needs to take a break to rest, but many spend several hours in
    this state. 4. Feeling
    of fatigue and disconnection while writing some messages.
    There are
    people who actively comment on blogs, forums and other sites. These people
    they tend to read the news and, motivated by the content of the news, they start to
    write your own opinions with a lot of passion. But later, when you do
    they realize they have written more than three paragraphs, they wonder if the
    length is adequate, they retrace their steps and re-edit everything, adding
    or by removing parts. Eventually they experience a feeling of fatigue and
    disconnection and even may consider that the news was not then
    as interested as they thought. Thus, many times they end with deleting the
    comment, action that generates relief and helplessness at the same time,
    depersonalization and fragility. To be totally honest, even if the authors
    they present these emotions as totally new and created by the Internet, to say
    the real are nothing more than sets of emotions that we were already capable of experiencing
    but which occur together when we are connected to the network and when the person
    it has some personality characteristics that make it particularly
    predisposed to fall into this vicious circle. So, even if from the point of view of Psychology
    these emotions represent nothing new, from a practical point of view
    turn into an alarm bell for all regular users of the
    net.
