Abstract
Since the appearance of Internet, several preoccupations have appeared as a result, with Internet
addiction being one of the most common. The goals of the present study were twofold. First, to examine
which psychological factors are relevant to explain Internet addiction, including impulsivity, passion and
social provision. Second, to incorporate all these factors into an integrative model. Based on multiple
regressions and path analysis, results revealed a positive relation between Internet addiction and specific
impulsivity components (lack of perseverance, urgency) and obsessive passion. Moreover, positive relations
were observed between obsessive passion and reassurance of worth, opportunity for nurturance,
sensation seeking and harmonious passion. In other words, Internet addiction is related to obsessive
passion, but is explained by different psychological factors. Accordingly, both Internet addiction and
obsessive passion can be viewed as two important and complementary facets of problematic Internet use.
