Abstract

Two experiments were conducted to investigate whether individuals who use more everyday technologies perceive durations differently. In Experiment 1 participants completed a questionnaire assessing everyday technology use, along with a duration estimation task. In Experiment 2, participants completed the same questionnaire to assess their technology use and an interval production task. A MANOVA showed significant differences between individuals with high and low technology use, in both the estimation and production tasks. All participants overestimated in estimation tasks, and under-produced in production tasks. However, participants with higher technology use overestimated and under-produced to a greater degree. These findings suggest that the relationship between everyday use of technology and temporal experience warrants further study. Future investigations will examine the mechanisms of this relationship in more detail.
