Everything in Moderation

Everything in Moderation

You don’t actually have an Addictive Personality! We think it’s safe to say that you’re fairly good at keeping yourself grounded when it comes to your healthy lifestyle and personal choices. You may not be the biggest risk-taker with what other people may consider just “good ol’ fun”, but over-doing things just isn't your style. Taking everything in moderation without being excessive is how you maintain a strong balance in your relationships, nutrition and alcohol use, and we applaud you. You really know how to check yourself before you wreck yourself!

Sensation-Seeking

Sensation-Seeking

You have Sensation-Seeking Behavior! In terms of having an addictive personality, you may have one, but you’ll never go overboard in any department to know for sure. You like to experiment with your more dangerous side and risky actions here and there, but you don’t necessarily go to extremes. You become fully aware of a situation that has become too much to handle, and know how and when to cut yourself off before you cross the line of dependency. The potential for attachment may be present, but you certainly have a good control over it.

At Risk of Dependency

At Risk of Dependency

You can be at Risk of Dependency! You have a semi-addictive personality; while you're self-aware and cautious of your personal choices that may lead to risky behavior, you probably don’t practice the best self-control. You like to let loose and go with flow (which isn’t always such a big deal), but you may find yourself in situations where you gradually develop a dependency on a substance or ritual that can be dangerous to your health or the way you function. This can have short-term effects or long-term ones on your mind, body and relationships, but we know you'll pull through and recognize which negative habits need to be cut out from your life!

Addictive Personality

Addictive Personality

Woah, you have an Addictive Personality! Somewhere out there is something special that you emotionally and physically attach yourself to, allowing this particular temptation you consume you whole. This can be food, alcohol, cigarettes… maybe it’s even sex! However, we just want to remind you that it is possible to have a healthy, more moderate version of a relationship with these things and not to let the addiction get too out of control. Enjoy what you love to the appropriate extent and you’ll be just fine. You have the strength in you, now let the power out!
