Obama has been causing a stir with the Secret Service for refusing to give up his beloved BlackBerry phone, which could get hacked by spies in order to gain information on the president.
Obama is lobbying to keep his phone and has said, Im still clinging to my BlackBerry. Theyre going to pry it out of my hands, which leads psychologist Dr. John Grohol to believe that the prez may have a cell phone addiction.
Grohol explains, Typical signs of a cell phone addict are when people are overly attached to it and cant be away from it. Obama is an individual who learned to function with this tool, so its not surprising that he doesnt want it taken away.
If his BlackBerry is confiscated, Grohol says Obama may start to suffer from anxiety.
However, Obamas addiction may actually work in his favor.
Grohol says, He understands technology and actively uses it, which will make him an effective president.
