Whenever you're waiting at the doctor's office or the DMV, you probably pull out your phone, right? We ALL pull out our phones.
So what would happen if you couldn't?
A new study found that we've gotten SO used to being able to occupy ourselves when we're bored, that if we CAN'T, we'll take ANY other option . . . even if it's SELF TORTURE.
Scientists had people sit in a waiting room without their phones. And their only option to stimulate themselves was to press a button that gave them a mild electric SHOCK.
And people were so desperate for ANY form of stimulation that one in four women and TWO out of THREE men sat there shocking themselves.
