dc.description.abstractThe aim of the present study is to investigate the relationship between problematic Internet use, online cognitive behavioural aspects and factors of psychosocial well-being in terms of gender through predictor variables life satisfaction, loneliness, impulsiveness, and personality traits (extraversion, neuroticism and psychoticism). A cross-sectional correlational study design was used and through a self-selection paradigm, a viable sample size of 130 participants (40 male, 90 female) completed an online survey questionnaire which was created on Google Docs culminating in a battery of psychometric tests. The Online Cognition Scale, Satisfaction With Life Scale, Barratt Impulsiveness Scale, UCLA Loneliness Scale and the Eysenck Personality Questionnaire Revised – Abbreviated Form were employed in the collection of data. Life satisfaction, loneliness, extraversion, neuroticism and psychoticism were found to be meaningful predictors of problematic Internet use. Improved definitions of problematic Internet use and empirically tested measures would support more accurate analysis of problematic Internet use in future research.
