People who are addicted to their cell phones are more likely get mood swings, says a new study.

According to the researchers at Baylor University in Texas, “moody and temperamental” extroverts were more likely to be hooked to their phones, and spend 10 hours a day on it, the Daily Express reported.

Much like substance addictions, phone addiction may be an attempt at mood repair, they added.

The findings are published in the journal Personality And Individual Differences. — ANI
