William Glasser說人有Five Basic Needs。好多人心理有問題都因為 Basic Needs未能 fulfill。
可是一部電腦加可以上網其實已令人的 Basic Needs都 fulfill
Five Basic Needs (how Internet can 'help')
•Power (includes achievement and feeling worthwhile as well as winning when playing computer games).
•Love & Belonging ( includes groups as well as families or loved ones through the contact of email, MSN / ICQ and facebook etc).
•Freedom (includes independence, autonomy, your own 'space', fake identity).
•Fun (includes pleasure and enjoyment).
•Survival (includes nourishment, shelter, sex).
那末，沉迷上網導致留級甚至死亡都' 好正常' 。
