College Student Network Complex
Facing the virtual world transformed by the Internet, contemporary college students have shown a high degree of recognition and enthusiasm for participation.
The various mentalities that accompany network behavior require us to pay full attention to and take corresponding guidance and adjustment measures.
Psychology also responds to the rapid development of the Internet, strengthening the sense of time and applicability.
With the emergence and development of the Internet, the affinity of college students for the Internet and related network behavior have aroused the attention and thinking of researchers from different angles-culture, education, sociology, youth studies, etc.
So, from the perspective of psychology, how to interpret the “Internet complex” of college students?
The development of the dislocation network of technological development and psychological preparation is super-conventional and leapfrogging. It is not too much to describe a thousand miles a day.
In the absence of adequate mental and psychological preparations, or without clear expectations at all, the Internet quickly permeated all aspects of social life.
Now, when our rational thinking has discovered all this, we have to say that the network society is both an orderly society and a disorderly society.
As far as the hard environment is concerned, the network society is orderly; but for the soft environment and many network behaviors, it is extremely disordered.
Modern technology uses sophisticated electronic components and rigorous computer programs to build a powerful “economic foundation” of the network society, but the “superstructure” and “ideology” of the network society cannot be built by technology.
It can be said that from the beginning, the network society has the defects of psychological and spiritual congenital deficiency.
The consequences of this contradiction can only be a gradual adaptation to existing facts, and the psychological shock is conceivable.
Human anxiety and anxiety in the information age have become a universal fact, and college students are naturally inevitable.
They are obsessed with the Internet, but do not know how to use it to their advantage; they are eager to think independently but often believe in false information on the Internet.
Therefore, there is a paradox that the shock caused by the huge changes brought by information technology to human social life coexists with our slow response to information technology.
”Double-edged sword” effect From the perspective of the scope, the impact of the Internet is comprehensive and comprehensive; from a natural point of view, its impact is mixed, positive, and possible.
Therefore, the Internet is figuratively described as a “double-edged sword”.
As far as the realm of life is concerned, its positive impact lies in the fact that the value of the existence of an individual’s life is infinitely enhanced and displayed, and it is possible for people to restore the dignity of life.
Chat rooms, BBS, e-mail, as well as a wide range of web pages. The role they play in social life has a role in alleviating the user’s nervousness and releasing the pressure from work and life.positive effect.
When people are affected by all kinds of stimuli to produce bad emotions, the approach advocated by psychology is modest, timely transfer, talk and venting, and the concealment, openness, and convenience of the Internet provide just such an opportunity.
The main manifestations of relative impact are: First, alienation of interpersonal relationships.
Reliance on the Internet and even obsession have greatly reduced interpersonal contact and replaced it with virtual interpersonal relationships.
In addition, “digital individuals” and “virtual self” also appeared.
In the Internet world, people engage in computers to talk, communicate, and even build relationships with each other, even when they are living in ignorance.
The network has broken through the traditional view of time and space, reduced the distance and time to zero, and realized the form of “world neighbor”.
But at the same time, because all this is done through a computer, out of this particular environment, there may be situations where you don’t know each other, which in turn makes “neighborhood” like “world”.
Second, there is anxiety and impetuousness.
The realization of material desires and the rapid development of technology do not necessarily lead to the simultaneous improvement of mentality and cultivation.
The so-called wealth does not equal happiness, and growth does not equal development.
The explosive growth of information can sometimes lead to disorientation, restlessness, and anxiety or impetuousness.
Wealthy disease, urban disease has become a reality, and Internet disease is by no means alarmist.
Paying attention to the network means paying attention to ourselves. In the end, all of this is not the credit or fault of the network.
It is just a medium, an instrumental existence.
If you use it well, it will benefit humanity, and if you do n’t use it well, you can endless harm.
The key is to see who uses it and how to use it.
Therefore, accompanied by saying that we are concerned about the network, rather we are concerned about ourselves; meanwhile, we should pay attention to the network, rather we should pay more attention to ourselves.
The ancient topic of human survival and development does not and cannot simply be made clear by the alien arrangement of the Internet.
The relationship between the Internet and psychology and mental health education is a two-way interaction.If the psychological method provides us with a unique perspective on understanding the network and network behavior, it can also be said that the network has injected vitality into psychology and mental health education, and also raised new and higher requirements.
The Impact of the Internet on Psychological Research Methods.
The Internet has created conditions for innovation in the form of psychometrics, and has made it impossible to process a large amount of information in the past.
The method we use to conduct psychological tests with a fixed displacement and a fixed sequence, the biggest drawback is that it is too old-fashioned, mechanical, lacking obstacles and innovation.
When the same person takes the same test at different times, due to the effects of memory and experience, the later the test, the lower the authenticity and credibility of the results.
A good method is to randomly present the translation, generate a unique questionnaire, and calculate the norm of the questionnaire itself.
Of course, all of this cannot be done by manpower and manual work alone-too much work.
But now it is different. In front of computers and the Internet, the heavy statistics, calculations, etc. that people realize are simplified to the translation of the mouse and the sound of the keyboard.
Even so, the network has broken the traditional space-time limitations and reduced distance and time to zero.
In psychological investigations, investigators can simultaneously obtain answers from Internet users who are far away from any corner of the world, thereby making large-scale investigations possible.
Of course, through further development of the network, the traditional sampling method must be changed.
In previous psychological research, this method is often used: randomly remove several schools in a city, and then randomly remove some students, and replace them with a scale or variable to obtain an overall grasp of the psychological status of students in that city.
Without sharpness, the accuracy of this method must at least reach the quality and quantity of the sample.
If the schools being removed are homogeneous and the students removed are of comparable size and representativeness, then the so-called palatability is broad.
Otherwise, it’s another matter.
On the Internet, the researchers are highly dispersed, and the “homogeneity” is poor. Obviously, they cannot be copied. The old tricks divided by age, gender, city and other methods are applied, because the situation of each website is different, and the age and gender of Internet users are different., Interests, hobbies, personalities and so on are very different, plus “loss of identity”, “hiddenness” and other factors may bring about the impact (“he” can be ignored or ignored; may or may not be serious), soPsychological research on one or more websites cannot represent the psychology of any other website member.
After that, we are required to innovate and optimize the sampling method, and work hard on the quality of the scale or questionnaire and the selection of samples.
Reconstruction of Cyber Psychology.
The emergence of the Internet has greatly promoted the development of psychology and mental health education, which is mainly manifested in the following aspects: First, practitioners can conduct convenient and efficient online communication.
A large amount of professional knowledge and dynamic information can be obtained through relevant sites at home and abroad.
You can also express different opinions on the Internet and even publish professional articles, and make your thoughts public in a short time.
Second, online psychology services are gradually heating up and will be gradually improved.
Regarding the predictions of reconstructing network psychology proposed by some people today, I think it should be corrected, because the so-called network psychology here refers not only to the psychology related to the network, but also to the psychology with the core of information exchange.
The Internet has brought a new paradigm that is different from computer science.
The focus of computer science is on the input, output, and information processing of a machine, while the focus of the network is information exchange between different computers (systems).
In the network perspective, the focus is not on the internal processes of a computer, but on the information flow of the network as a whole.
The network as a whole has new qualities that no computer has (this reminds us of Gestalt’s famous saying: “The whole is greater than the sum of its parts”).
Therefore, this new paradigm will lead to the birth of network psychology, which compares human groups with computer networks and uses the concept of network information exchange to study the psychology of people and people.
