    Question ENFP's & Addictive Personalities

    I have an addictive personality. I was wondering if it's just me or a trait found commonly in ENFP's??

    As I'm a pleasure-seeker, I stay away of things that are addictive, unless harmless. One addiction I cannot shake is chocolate. I don't like the taste of cigarettes, alcohol and I've never tried drugs out of fear, as I know that once I like something, it's all or nothing. I do not do moderate

    So you might be on to something *grin*

    I don't think ENFP's are naturally swayed towards addiction, only that they are more inclined to try things out of sheer curiousity. The ENFP's love of novelty would make him/her more inclined to give up something after it loses its mystique/intrigue. Just like other projects that the ENFP starts enthusiastically, the drugs may be thrown away for something more intriguing when the time comes. The only issue that an ENFP may face at the time of quitting is the actual physical addiction to the vice or the habituation to it.

    If the ENFP has strong opinions about drugs controlling their life, which might be heavily burried in their Fi, it would become a weapon for them to quit the drug despite adverse mental reactions. I guess what I am trying to say is that you are just probably going through a phase.

    Good luck with it.

    I'm not necessarily speaking of drug addiction. I don't do any drugs, I don't even drink or smoke.

    I do have a sweet tooth though. A really bad one. I have a few other vices...luckily nothing that will kill me!

    Well then, I still don't think ENFP's have a super addictive personality since everything gets old to them.

    It's okay. The thing is that even if we get tired of something...there is still that tendency for us to get addicted to something even if it's for a little while. No?

    I would guess that anyone can become addicted to anything. I was just projecting my personal experience on others , Hopefully your experience is like mine and you just get bored of that which is of no use to you or harms you.
