    9s are prone to addiction in general because they avoid internal conflict through external means.

    My husband is a 9 and he loves coffee. He drinks a pot most days so maybe 5-6 large mugs. I have a couple cups. I drink iced tea the rest of the day but it's decaf.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    I used to drink decaf up until towards the end of my college years... then when I told a friend one night during winter finals week, she made it her mission that night to make sure I’d have my first “real” coffee. I’ve been spoiled since, can’t have decaf anymore because the caffeinated stuff is waaaaay better imo.

    I love coffee, but I only have 1-2 cups a day. Anymore and I start feeling a bit sick. My only real addictions are internet and audiobooks.

    I think caffeine addiction specifically is so widespread that it transcends Enneagram types.

    Addiction in general, can happen to any type. Maybe some types are seen as more prone but there are other factors that go into it that may be more important. One of them is genetics. Genetic predisposition to addiction is SUPER potent in some families. I have sort of always just assumed I am predispositioned to addictions, it's better to play it safe than sorry.

    Albeit, this isn't talking about caffeine. I'm talking more about alcohol since there's a lot of alcoholism among people I'm relatdd to.

    Agreed, though I can't tell if this is a SERIOUS thread or mostly just fun/relating in terms of caffeine usage.

    I work in a coffee shop...I can confidently say caffeine addiction has nothing to do with type. There are lots of definite non 9's that are caffeine junkies.

    I'm a 9w1. I took 2-4 caffeine pills nearly every day for, probably, over a decade.
    Now, I take Provigil.

    I have a sleep disorder (?) plus apnea though.
    I can't stand the taste of most coffee (and then, I prefer it cold or blended fancy).
    Strangely enough, I can't drink caffeinated tea or it gives me problems with my "anxiety" (no worry, just constant "adrenaline surges" around my mouth), which end up fatiguing me more than I was before the tea lol.

    I LOVE and live on soda though. (I gave it up for 3 months a couple of years ago with no withdrawal.) Coke, Sprite, my 64 ounce cup filled with frozen Coke *drools*.
    No alcohol for me, please. Just one drink makes me feel like someone punched me in the gut... and then it knocks me out rofl. I have zero tolerance.

    I drink it a bunch. I'm a rare morning person, so I get sleepy early. Plus college. My energy levels are weird, I usually flip between being hyper to wanting to nap all day. I think I should cut back though, the caffeine is making me anxious and irritable :/

    Yes, I am a caffeine addict. Occassionally, I take a break for a few months, but I just miss it.....

It is clear also that thought is not free if all the arguments on one side of a controversy are perpetually presented as attractively as possible, while the arguments on the other side can only be discovered by diligent search.”
