The NMP-Q is a self-report instrument consisting of 20 items that assess 4 dimensions (1) Not being able to communicate; (2) Losing connectedness; (3) Not being able to access, and (4) Giving up convenience. Items are answered using a 7-point Likert scale, ranging from 1 “Totally disagree” to 7 “Totally agree”. Total scores are calculated by summing each item answer, resulting in a nomophobia index ranging from 20 to 140, with higher scores corresponding to greater nomophobia severity.
