I am definitely going to that link today and read that. Thanks
Now, on your comment about an additive personality, just to make sure, I assume you mean addictive as always making the a choice for the same reason/reasoning. True?
By the way, can anyone lead me to where I can find the IT abbreviations for this site, like what is a BBCode or parsing URLs???
I was using it in the sense of an addictive personality needs to always be in high risk/stimulation situations to feel comfortable, and this normally plays out as drug or gambling or promiscuity or unintelligent risk taking...addiction -
some people with this trait are able to control it with equally forceful executive frontal cortex functioning, and these are the successful mountain climbers, day traders, real estate entrepreneurs...rags to riches to rag to riches yo yo guys...
one combat to depression is to try something worthwhile, with an important reward, maybe a little bit dangerous, very very carefully
sometimes unhappiness is a mismatch between your values and your personality - a high intensity kid born under a high intensity dad, will be trained in how to channel intensity...productively and safely
a high intensity kid born to a low intensity dad, may not be able to figure out how to use their biology or Quality...and they normally turn to vice as the only preceived action available
