Specialists of the SuperJob job search service interviewed economically active Russians from all districts of the country and found out that the majority of respondents do not have digital addiction (58 per cent of respondents).
In turn, 42 per cent of Russians observe symptoms of digital addiction. Of these, 11 per cent are sure of this and another 31 per cent simply suspect themselves of being addicted to gadgets. Experts clarify that women more often than men admitted that they are addicted to gadgets and the Internet (43 per cent versus 40 per cent). Respondents over 45 are less likely to suffer from digital addiction (32 per cent).
In addition, it turned out that 21 per cent of Russians arrange digital detox for themselves every day, 10 per cent try to take a break from gadgets and the Internet once a week, another 10 per cent, once a month, 4 per cent several times a year, 1 per cent enjoy digital shut down once in a few years, and 54 per cent have never given up the Internet. Interestingly, people who are completely confident in their digital addiction and those who are absolutely confident in its absence, equally often claimed that they do not practice digital detox (58 per cent and 57 per cent, respectively).
It is noted that most of those who every day free their time from digital devices are among respondents over 45 years old (25 per cent). Also, women are more likely than men to say that they arrange for themselves a daily digital detox (24 per cent versus 18 per cent). Men, on the other hand, most often say that they never organize any digital detox because there is simply no need for it (58 per cent).
