If the devil created drugs, and God created the devil, does that mean God created drugs?

I don't think types relate much to addiction, it seems like something more relient on other things that are not neccesarily related to type, like life experiences, socialization, ect. I do think that some types seem like they may enjoy the idea of bending their minds, but this does not really require drugs. I think INFP is one type that may like the idea of mind bending, I personally like the idea, although I don't like the idea of using drugs as a means to that. I think the whole imaginative nature of us INFP's is the reason for this... something like a dream is fascinating in how it bends reality. Last night I dreamed I was in the Tower of Babel and we were getting attacked by Megatron, which isn't something you see everyday . Photography is another good example, it strikes me as an amazing media for art because of the way it reshapes and reimagines the world you see with clear eyes by taking a different perspective on it to say something about it. For some people, getting high may be the means to experience this shift in reality/perspective.
I demand to know why ESTPs didn't appear on your list! :steam: SPs and drugs are a match made in heaven unfortunatly I'm drinking a stiff gin and tonic as I post this, and all of the other SPs I know are fans of some forms of drugs! It's unfortunate, but true :sad:

But since Freud, a classic INFJ, was a cocaine buff, I can't really completely dismiss the association.
Jung has said himself that Freud's system represents extraverted thinking, Von Franz hypothesizes that it's inferior extraverted thinking, and Beebe suspects that Freud was an ISFP.
I also happen to have the opinion that Freud had some kind of ego-syntonic introverted feeling. Also, I think Freud's "dirty little secret" approach to psychology cannot possibly be from dominant intuition, Jung was a 'classic' introverted intuition type, and it often made Freud uncomfortable.
I also see no indication of extraverted feeling in freud. His granddaughter (who probably actually does prefer extraverted feeling) said he usually was somber and no fun.
Why would Freud be a 'classic' Infj?
hmmm. I think this would be a good thread.
