    If you're talking about painkiller addiction, I haven't determined if there are particular types for that except that it seems common in those who work in the medical profession and those patients who had suffered a physical injury.

    I've always questioned the nature of addiction. Are addictions physiological or psychological? And do they have different names for physiological and psychological addictions?

    And what exactly is the difference between an addiction and a compulsion?

    Cocaine is a stimulant. Opiates are depressants.

    I would say that addiction is a combination of physical and psychological- being that for instance in SP/ NP types, marijuana could numb or activate certain parts of their brain functioning, which makes them more physiologically-psychologically more prone towards it in a similar way in which TJ types can self-medicate using alcohol to tune out or accentuate different parts of their brain functioning in which alcohol makes them more emotionally expressive. Likewise, some FJ types might utilise cocaine/speed to increase their need for sense-stimulation.

    Can you cite the source(s) upon which you base that claim?

    You are thinking of Heroin, which is derived from opium, but has some stimulant effects.

    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.
