Abstract

By using smartphones more generally, people's lives become more convenient. However, many people complain of stress caused by the use of smartphones, further, the tendencies to reject it are appearing. In this paper, new conceptual word, antismart-resistance consciousness gained by experience before and after introduction of smart devices - is newly proposed as a research variable. In addition, we have studied to identify the relationship affecting continuous use of smartphones with technostress and antismart. To achieve this, a research model and hypotheses were presented and verified by using questionnaires data. The result showed that users who actively embrace innovative technologies were highly tolerant of technostress, whereas knowledge or experience of IT trends did not affect technostress or antismart tendencies.
