Technological changes in modern informational society raise a question of development of appropriate ways of adaption in people actively using new technologies which in turn requires the development of methodological tools for assessment of psychological effects of technological progress. This paper is devoted to development and validation of the inventory technique for measurement of changes of psychological boundaries while using technical devices. Three versions of the techniques were developed (for mobile phone, internet and computer); all of them were found to be reliable instruments of assessment of psychological dependence on technical devices, changes in psychological boundaries and new needs development (total of 254 subjects). Convergent validity of the techniques was confirmed. Factor structure of the techniques corresponds to the theoretical model.

Keywords: technological progress, psychological boundaries, psychological dependence, new needs development, psychometric assessment
