Time spent in front of a computer may constitute a risk for the smoothness of the emotional contact and for the mental flow, especially for the senior-age category of population. In this study, we hypothesized that increases in age, respectively a multitude of worries related to the health condition, in association to a time spent in front of a computer higher than two hours per day, will determine a decrease in the feeling of success. We collected data via Internet and on paper-based format, through a back-translated measure. The examination of the hypotheses of study was in a multi-cultural sample of N = 261 participants, almost equally-sized by gender, having calculated cumulative frequency equal to 5.9 for the age of 35, 60, 63, 64 years old. The results obtained from conducting TWO-WAY ANOVA proved entire support of the hypotheses of this study. We discuss the limitations and the implications of these results for the development and maintenance of a healthy life-expectancy within various populations.
