    Default Type 9s and Caffeine Addiction or Habit

    Is there a relationship between being a type 9 and having a caffeine habit? Are these correlated more closely than with the other 8 types? Are there any type 9s out there who don't require some kind of stimulant (if not caffeine) to keep them going all day?

    Me.

    I don't drink coffee and often stop drinking carbonated beverages if I think I am starting to depend on them.

    I don't know if it is any relation to 9 or anything but I love coffee and any stimulant. Always have, probably always will.

    I'm guessing you're an ENFP. Does a type 9 at the higher levels of development try to rely on their own internal reserves rather than on substances? Or is this a 1-wing need for self-control.

    Going by memory, you're an ISFP 9w8. Maybe, just maybe, the 8-wing more or less influences the need to use stimulants, but with the 9w1, there is a counteracting need to get control over this.

    You guess wrong.

    I would guess yes, as it is with most healthier people.

    Not 100% wrong. You're an intuitive at least, assuming your avatar is a self-pic. If I can guess 75% of someone's type, then I'm as good as the MBTI with its 75% accuracy rating.

    Stimulants can become a problem for anybody. But type 9s seem to have a particular affinity with them in whatever form. Type 7s just like to feel trippy, and type 4s like to use them to explore their inner worlds.

    I really doubt it.

    So it's not a self-pic. I don't know of Tom Hardy at all.
