Identity Stress – Who Am I, Anyway?

My dad and my wife often talk about “technostress” when describing their relationship with computers. I feel that way myself, sometimes.

Dave Kearns pointed out a an interesting article by Richard Stacy which proposed that ‘Digital Identity Stress’ and ‘Digital Schizophrenia’ will emerge as recognized medical conditions for those who battle internally over the differences between their “real” selves and personas they have created for themselves in the digital realm.

Perhaps the term “Identity Stress” will become commonplace to describe individuals’ relationship with themselves in the Participation Age.

One Response to “Identity Stress – Who Am I, Anyway?”

    Your posting set me wondering. But then I read your comment about seeking help. So I decided to take the plunge.
    I am a practicing Psychiatrist for 38 years now.
    In that time I have spent a lot of time trying to put together what I have learnt.
    It is no apparently obvious to me that we should put more effort into preventing anxiety and depression than curing it.
    I can tell who is going to develop these illnesses long before they do. They all have poor quality of life. They are all ‘doers’ and not ‘be-ers’. They are all good for others and bad for themselves.
    We can change all that. We can prevent anxiety and depression. We can improve quality of life. We can do this by using simple, but highly effective interventions. This is why I built http://www.myRay.com
