Some people seem to be more likely to be easily addicted. Whether a personality type can be identified by using a standardized psychological test is still in question. There seems to be strong evidence that people who are depressive or have anxiety have more of a tendency toward alcohol and/or drug dependancy.

An addictive personality describes a set of character traits that make someone more susceptible to developing addictions.

Absolutely NOT, a person can council in any given field, that does not mean that they know nothing about it just because they themselves have not fallen into that trap ofaddiction. Not everyone has an addictive personality, these are just the people who can help and be of service to the addict. maybe u should do research theres no such thing as addictive personality and i think that anybody can be a counselor if they have the drive and motivation in recovery or not

It's can be addictive, which is dangerous if you have a history of drug abuse, or any sign of an addictive personality.

Everyone has addictive behaiviors. Some folks however seem to be more addicted than others. An addictive personality (disorder), cannot be cured with any medicine (known to man). However, with counseling some people with this disorder can regain some control of their life. An person with this disorder will frequently have OCD, Alcoholism, Drug Addiction, Sex Addiction, Food Addiction, and more. They do not just have one addiction, but will have multiple addictions.

Many people believe that marijuana is addictive but the truth is. Is that it is NOT ADDICTIVE. There are no addictive properties in marijuana. Marijuana is a completely natural supplement. People that say that their addicted to marijuana have one of two thing. (or both). `1. they have an addictive personality. (meaning they consume there body with what makes them feel good inside. example: marijuana..) 2. They have low will power.,, So yep that pretty much it. I hope i answered your question fully to your benefit! :)

It could. It depends on the person. Some people have addictive personalities -- they can't do any drug without getting addicted to it. Others have this addictive personality to a certain extent, and tend to drink or do drugs to excess, but are able to keep themselves from becoming full-blown addicts. And others do not have this addictive personality at all, and are able to do drugs, even hard drugs like cocaine or heroin, only a little bit, once in awhile.

There are physical and mental dynamics of an addictive personality that scientists have been watching: heritability, neurotransmitters and sensation seeking needs are some biological factors and impulsivity, value on nonconformity, sense of social alienation and tolerance for deviance and heightened stress and lack of coping skills are typical personality traits.

Depends on the person taking them.

Unfortunately, aspirin is addictive. It takes longer to get hooked than some drugs and the dosage is usually higher (varies person to person), but ASA is definitely addictive.

There is nicotine they are a drug because they are addictive so any thing that is addictive is a drug like alcohol is classed as a drug

User Avatar

The answer to that would depend on whether the person in question has an addictive personality among other things(including genetics). Many people consume alcohol and never go on to use other illegal drugs. However, some decide that they enjoy the feeling they get from it, and decide to experiment with other drugs as well. If they do have an addictive personality, it is very likely that they will find out and experiment whether they use/abuse alcohol or not.

It means that the person is very loud and outspoken and outgoing. Mostly not a bad thing but sometimes it can be annoying. It also means that the person is very attractive (not necessarily looks) to others. The person with a big personality will find him/herself surrounded by others seeking his/her company.
