    There are some statistics bumping around somewhere (sure I read them in a practioners MBTI book) about the drugs of choice of different types.

    In summary, the more "society/SJ" based a type is the more likely it is to abuse drugs that really go off the rails, and the more distant types (say NP) are more likely to just want to be out of their heads.

    So.. an ISFJ may abuse cocaine, and an INTP may abuse alcohol.

    There was some correlation in studies at least.

    Where does caffeine fit? I suppose types that struggle with getting things done on time and leaving to get stuff started could abuse stimulants to get going in the mornings, late at night when panicking. So my money is on "P"s to be caffeine users. For J's the caffeine may be more of a regular routine.

    Speculation mostly!

    I don't think it's type related, but I can't wait for more replies.

    I love stimulants, but I don't have trouble getting things started.

    I love caffeine, and I'll admittedly be a bit irked if I miss my morning coffee (or four - I drink a lot of it). Not because I'm addicted to it (I actually tried this by going without caffeine for nearly a week, with no side effects other than missing the taste), but I do enjoy the subtle push to get going and organise my thoughts even if I already have the motivation to get up/get dressed/go to class. I like alcohol because it will, in moderation, get me to talk to people I wouldn't necessarily speak to otherwise, or speak more openly to others and entertain ideas I would scoff sober (if only for the sake of argument), but I abhor total inhibition and am not a social or heavy drinker by any means. I like my mind and I don't really want to have to rely on anything to keep it in order/quiet/etc. I just like the taste of coffee, basically.

    If it helps, every NTP type I know is a lover of coffee. *sheepishly eyes her avatar*

    As an English major, caffeine (and taurine, to a lesser extent) is a regular guest in my bloodstream. It's essential for last minute essay writing, and well, getting out of bed for lectures.
    Um, yeah.

    Exception here!
    I didn't vote because I really don't know. I don't think it is type related.

    Perceivers needing coffee to do those last-minute things? No... stress is fuel enough.
    Got questions? Ask an ENTP!

    Heh, I registered back in November and have been lurking ever since, but the thing that finally gets me to actually post for the first time is a thread on caffeine! Go figure...

    I'm an INFP, and I LOVE coffee. I especially like drinking it at night. My body is so tolerant to it though that I can drink three cups right before going to bed and sleep like a rock! However, I don't know many (if any) other INFPs so I can't say if it's a trend. I do know my ISFJ girlfriend (also an English major) and ENFP best friend drink it religiously as well!

    I read somewhere that introverts are more strongly affected by caffeine.
    I myself never seeem to feel the effects of caffeine, even after I drink an "energy" drink at 11 pm.
    It's horrible.
