Abstract
The problem of a person with signs of virtual addiction is considered. It is revealed that such individuals are characterized by insufficient openness, weak readiness to change their own behaviour and environment, difficulties in self-acceptance, superficial communication combined with avoidance of self-revealization and deep trust, ambivalence in accepting someone's opinion, externalities, emotional and communicative barriers, reduced personal adaptive potential. There are the signs of social frustration, unwillingness to cope with some difficult life circumstances, low stress resistance. When solving problems, virtual addicts resort to strategies of escapism, confrontation, seeking social support, distancing and avoiding the problem, low self-control and responsibility
