    Default NTs and alcohol...

    When you drink, NTs, do you become more sociable? Do you then regret it?

    It's rare, but when drinking, I wake up the next morning thinking:Oh my god, did I say that?! Did I really do that? Maybe it's I related, but I usually become a huge Extrovert. You?

    I can act like a damned fool when I'm drunk. I've done things before that I probably shouldn't have. Am I more sociable? That depends. I tend to choose one person and talk to her(Yes, it will just about always be a girl) all night about whatever comes to my head. I do not tend to act out in dumb ways but I will be a lot more open physically.

    This is why I generally prefer not to use alcohol when my aim is not to be sober.

    I agree...

    Used in moderation, I find that alcohol loosens me up. While it doesn't make me an extrovert, at least it allows me a measure of sociability that keeps me from standing out as a wallflower. Of course, if used excessively I become the same idiot anyone else does.

    I drink so rarely that when I do I am a two pot screamer. I prefer to be at home or with people I trust implicitly if I lose my fine honed self-control. Likewise with any green smoke substance which is even rarer than the once every two month occasional drink.

    Although I'm an ENTP, I do realize that when I drink, I become way more sociable and outgoing, like ten times more than I usually am, and I tend to regret it every time.

    I tend to become much more extroverted, but whatever I've done I don't regret in the slightest. Getting drunk and even drinking at all is uncommon for me, however.

    I get more sociable after a drink or two like most people, but if I drink too much I can sometimes go the other direction and shut down socially. Depends on the setting.

    I'm a fun, happy drunk but I usually say a lot of things I wish I hadn't and feel foolish the next day. I strongly dislike not being in full control of myself so I tend not to get drunk very often at all.

    No. I get slow, tired and disinterested, then go looking for a place to sleep.
