Objective: To investigate the key variables which affect the pathological internet use in adolescents with internet addiction.Methods: It was a cross-sectional study.Through lectures on the pathological internet use and the surveys executed in schools and communities,324 students were surveyed with the Young's internet addiction test.According to the survey results,60 adolescents from the 6th graders of primary school to the 3th graders of senior high school who were addicted to surfing internet were selected,and they were aged 12~19.The self-made questionnaire,Pathological Internet Use Scale,Time Perspective and Adolescent Self-Rating Life Events Checklist were used in the present study.Results:The scores of the adolescents with acting motive on pathological internet use were significantly higher than those without acting motive [(55.3±2.5)vs.(48.1±1.4),P=0.012].The present time perspective was correlated significantly with pathological internet use(r=0.38,P﹤0.01).The interpersonal relationship,one of the life events,was also correlated significantly with pathological internet use(r=0.42,P0.01) and could predict pathological internet use directly(R2=17.5,P0.001).Conclusion: It is suggested that acting motive,human relations and present specific time can directly affect the pathological internet use in the addicted adolescents.
