    Default Which personality types are prone to drug addiction?

    OK, I've made some initial assessments based upon my observation of others and I think the following has a tendency for each type:

    ENTP/INTP/INFP/ISFP: marijuana

    INFJ/ENFJ/ESFJ: cocaine, speed

    INTJ/ENTJ/ISTJ/ESTJ: alcohol

    ENFP: anti-anxiety meds coupled with ecstasy

    ISFJ I've noticed is the only type that doesn't seem to have a predisposition towards any addictions- they like healthy living, exercise etc.

    Wow! I assumed that all the SPs would be in there! Interesting.

    I also think that computers and Internet should be labeled a drug, because they are very addicting. I tend to think that INTP and INTJs are the most prone to computer addiction...unless you have an alternative theory.

    I've actually never tried marijuana or cocaine. I only have alcohol once in a while -- don't like the taste of it much. (But with that said, I'm addicted to Mountain Dew.)

    INTPs/INTJs like systems so computers would be part of their lifestyle. I'm talking about addiction, not necessarily certain obsessive-compulsive behaviors.

    INFJs and drugs don't really mix. :1377:

    But since Freud, a classic INFJ, was a cocaine buff, I can't really completely dismiss the association.

    Neurotic INFJs are often quite paranoid, so cocaine addiction wouldn't surprise me.

    Cocaine manufactures paranoia, and neurotic INFJs are sometimes quite paranoid.

    No! I think INFJs manufacture enough of their own paranoia. They don't need a drug to do it for them.

    Interesting. N dominance can also lead people to think they are right about something when they are not, and not integrate the viewpoints of others.
