Description
A survey was conducted to examine the correlation between college students’ cell phone use and words describing the different categories of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. Participants included the general student body of students at Central Michigan University. The survey was distributed using Survey Monkey and the participants were asked about cell phone use, and their emotions using the PANAS-X. Results suggested that students’ self-reported feelings of fatigue are positively related to their frequency of calling and texting. Students’ self-reported feelings of fear are positively related to their frequency of overall calling, and specifically texting a parent. Students’ self-reported feelings of belonging and frequency of overall calling and texting are not related, but feelings of belonging and texting a parent are positively related. Students’ feelings of esteem are positively related to their frequency of calling and texting. McNair Scholar project; Faculty Advisor: Deborah Bailey, Human Environmental Studies.
