I probably should have listed some of the addictive personality traits so that you all could have a better understand of what I basing my question on.Here is a partial list of traits.
1.Live with self deception
2.Distorted concept of time
3.They confuse cause and effect
4.They deny,rationalize and project actions and reactions
5.They have trouble dealing with conflict
6.They are hypersensitive
7.They have morbid expectations
8.They manipulate others
9.They have a spiritual emptiness
10.Have trouble with sensible solutions but embrace ridiculous explanantions
It appears to me that the above traits are becoming more and more dominant in some societies today.If so, then maybe, it is because we as a species carry these addictive traits as a universal Karma.If we do and the addictive personality becomes the norm,which appears to be already on the increase,then we may be able to have a glimpse into what the actual reasons for our problems today are.If in doubt about these traits being prevelent in our societies today just pick up a newspaper and browse through some of the articles and see if any of these traits are contained in the articles.I'm sure you'll find 3 or 4 of them quite easily and realize some are in almost all articles.Advertisements which are a large part of anyones life today contain many addictive traits that we seem to just accept today without question or objection.Let me know what you think and if you can identify them in other parts of our society?
