                               HOW YOU FARE

20 or less: Not at all nomophobic. You have a very
 healthy relationship with your device and have
no problem being separated from it.

 21-60: Mild nomophobia. You get a little antsy when
  you forget your phone at home for a day or get stuck
  somewhere without WiFi, but the anxiety isn’t too
 overwhelming.


61-100: Moderate nomophobia. You’re pretty attached
to your device. You often check for updates while you’re
walking down the street or talking to a friend, and you
often feel anxious when you’re disconnected.
Time for a digital detox?

101-120: Severe nomophobia. You can barely go for 60
seconds without checking your phone. It’s the first thing you
check in the morning and the last at night, and dominates most of
your activities in-between. It might be time for a serious
intervention
