I have a very addictive personality. My friend who has AS does not though. She does have a special interest and she's really "addicted" to it in that she spends all her free time doing things related to it but she has really good self discipline and if she finds out eating something that she really likes isn't healthy for her for example she can just easily stop eating it! That's amazing to me......I'm really bad at getting myself to do things like that.

I read in a thread ages ago that NTs were the ones who were more likely to become addicted to things, like drugs, cigarettes, sugar, caffiene and alcohol.

I have a sugar addiction and also get addicted to certain people. I have no interest in alcohol or drugs though so it's not a general addiction-prone personality type, just certain things.
What is bad is if the person you're addicted to treats you badly but you can't break away from them - this is very hard to deal with.
