> Perhaps this is a starting point. Is this more in the direction of what you're talking about? Or perhaps do you think the theory of narcissistic personality to broad an angle from which to start?

Psychoanalytic theory was *not* what I had in mind <g>. What I'm curious about is what traits ("personality" or "temperament" or whatever you want to call them) make some people apparently unable to use drugs in moderation. I'm not sure if that's what you're thinking of or not. (I took intro psych, but we didn't study Kohut's "self psychology.")

I wonder what's going on in their little tiny rat brains.
