Texting too tempting for college students even when inappropriate

1 abril 2015

College students may realize that texting in the shower or at a funeral is inappropriate, but many do it anyway, according to psychologists. The researchers suggest that college students are not necessarily trying to create new norms in texting behaviors, but that breaking with these norms is just too tempting for them in most cases. When they receive texts, the temptation to check their texts and send messages back is much greater than the urge to pay attention to their present situation.
