Abstract

This study aimed to determine the relationship between cyberspace dependence and identity orientation among female students, aged 20 to 30 years old studying at the Medical School, Department of Psychology, Islamic Azad University of Medical Sciences, Tehran Branch. The research method was descriptive (non-experimental) correlational study and the statistical population consisted of all psychology students of Tehran's Islamic Azad University of Medical Sciences. The number of 150 students were selected from the statistical population via goal-based sampling method. Data collection tools included Yang Cyberspace Dependence Questionnaire (2002) and Berzonsky Identity Style Questionnaire (1992). Descriptive statistics were used to analyze the results, then Pearson correlation coefficient test and multivariate regression analysis test were used. The results indicated that the calculated correlation coefficients between identity orientation and cyberspace dependence were significant at the level of 0.05. There was a significant negative correlation between cyberspace dependence and identity orientation. The findings also demonstrated that the more students enjoy an informational, normative and commitment identity style, the less dependence they have on cyberspace.
