TOO MUCH IS TOO MUCH
42 percent: Ernest Hemingway
These drunks can imbibe a large quantity of liquor and show minimal signs of intoxication or change in personality.
23 percent: Mr. Hyde
They are the angry drunks, becoming less responsible and more hostile after imbibing.
20 percent: Nutty Professor
They are shy and introverted when sober and quite extroverted when drunk. Liquor dramatically alters their personality, allowing them to shed most of their inhibitions.
15 percent: Mary Poppins
When sober, they have an agreeable, outgoing and sweet personality, and liquor only makes them more kind and happy.
So what? By describing how personality is affected by binge drinking, researchers can develop terms to help guide interventions for those abusing alcohol and possibly struggling with alcohol-related addiction, according to Winograd.
