We present a mixed method study with logging of the actual behavior on WeChat of 29 Android phone users followed by test of their psychological traits. The results showed that average time on WeChat per session (ATPS) was significantly negatively associated with retrospective behavior of doing several things at a time, and average time on WeChat per day (ATPD) was positively associated with confidence of doing several things at a time. No significant association was found between average frequency of using WeChat per day (AFPD) and measures of psychological traits. In conclusion, we suggest that WeChat users with habit of doing several things at a time tend to regulate their WeChat use through controlling the time on WeChat per session rather than frequency. Over confidence of successfully doing several things at a time probably result in longer time of WeChat use per day.
