    Personality under the influence

    I just thought of another question upon reading one of the threads.

    What effects do alcohol and marijuana or other drugs have on you?

    Will your personality be more salient or more withdrawn?

    Alcohol is a draw for INTJs apparently, it imbibes them with sensory capacities through depressing ACH-release (I may have misquoted) in the Central nervous system and Peripheral nervous system. So in my case at the very least. I become more interested in minutia and interaction rather than concepts and practices. So alcohol causes me to become more salient.

    Marijuana: Oh this one was always iffy for me. I really loved getting stoned when I was younger, and occasionally at present. Though I find it enhances my introverted intuition to the state of withdrawal. My friends hated that as it was mostly considered rude to smoke alone. -withdrawn.

    Alcohol doesn't change me very much, although it does make me slightly more extraverted. I have been told that nobody can tell when I'm drunk. When I drink, I usually continue to think and speak coherently, sometimes more fluidly and expressively than I would if I were sober, because I feel less insecure. I can choose my words well, and have the confidence to use them instead of second-guessing myself, as I do when I am sober.

    Marijuana makes me feel like an ISFP. I lose my ability to speak and to focus my thoughts. I can only sense, and all of my senses are intensified. Music sounds better, touch feels better, foods taste better, and I withdraw, becoming increasingly introverted. Withdrawal is self-protective, since I am naturally Highly Sensitive. On marijuana, I cannot escape my senses, even though I remain in my own reality, detached from others. Language loses its meaning, and I am in touch with the tangible world instead of the intellectual symbols for my experiences. Everything intensifies, but I am incapable of attaching meaning to the sensations. I am aware only of the moment. This is an extreme change for me. Ordinarily, I get so caught up in my internal world of meanings that I forget about my body entirely unless it is uncomfortable. Perhaps this shift into a more sensate form of perception is what causes marijuana to effectively remedy my nightmare disorder, which seems to be related to my intuitive preference.

    This reminds me a guy I knew in high school. He was constantly stoned, but he would be getting over 90 marks on physics and math. Maybe the weed helped him concentrate better I guess...I thought he was a genius.

    It is a proven method that if you are relaxed, you think more clearly but I don't think that him being stoned resulted in high marks. I say it was a combination of relaxation, brain function, and studying that gave him the incredible marks.
