    Should I ever decide to sober up, I'll let you know if there's a difference.

    Seriously, I'm more open, talkative, warmer. More likely to draw confessions out of other people, and more likely to care - if only for a while. My best friend still teases me about last year when I invited her over for dinner and got a bit... toasted. She found it entertaining. Dinner and a show. And burned peas and carrots.

    But the night we went to see Three Dog Night at the county fair, the tables turned. She's a bit of a party animal I suspect.

    Gawd forbid we both got drunk.

    Well if I'm drunk, I become extroverted. However, I'm rarely drunk (people from Vegas need not comment).

    By extroverted I mean that I just talk more. Stuff that would usually stay as a dialogue in my head starts flowing out. That's about it. Everything else remains the same.

    A few drinks makes me even more social and extroverted than I am - happy, talkative, outgoing. A few more drinks makes me kind of sleepy and happy. A few more starts making me think things like "awwww, I really love these people, what good friends I have, how I love them!" etc. A few more makes me incoherent and pukey.

    Interesting stuff, finely put. It's most obvious with the totally drunk, but I just personally enjoy it's finer nuances.

    I was curious if I had developed more of a stoic sober personality which alcohol would unlock a bit, then, regression associated with consumption might explain it at well.

    I would theorize that people make somewhat different kinds of memories while sober, or having drank alcohol, leading people to require alcohol to fully access the memories made while under influence.

    When drinking, there are 2 options.

    a) becoming depressive, depending on the mood of people surrounding me. The more I drink => the more depressive I get. (but that happens rarely, usually it's option b)
    b) becoming crazy and much more open to stuff I would normally think twice about doing. The more I drink => the more crazy I get.

    I don't like drinking alone, it's not funny. Ever. The only thing I'd drink when alone would be Coke.

    Alcohol... it's great when in great company, but the nausea the next day kind of makes me avoid it unless I have a very good reason to become crazy.

    Besides, not being able to remember when I first kissed my boyfriend is not very nice. I also hate the memory blanks I get if I exaggerate.

    If I drink just the right amount, I become more animated and more talkative. If I go over that amount, I drift into quiet but happy observation & reflection mode - just enjoying the feelings and watching everyone around me.

    I'm a happy drunk. Never an angry or depressed one.

    yeah I don't get angry or depressed, I think my natural mode is to be happy with what I got and yeah I do get angry sober but that's because I'm sober but drunk its like I don't care really so I'm going to have fun.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    As I drink more I get more and more extraverted. More talkative and people seeking. I feel like moving around and talking to people I normally wouldn't. Get enough alcohol into me and I get really loving. Me + alcohol = ENFP.

    I'm pretty sure my drunk personality is ENTP. In company I get a Scottish accent and sometimes claim to be Russian. Definitely more aggressively outgoing and prone to bullshitting for as long as the fabrication seems interesting.

    But alone I play music and whip up a big ole Fi storm.

    Thus, got fed up with alcohol about two years ago and don't drink no mo'.
