This Psychology Factsheet aims to give an overview of the theory of addictive personality. It will firstly explain the three parts of personality as identified by Eysenck, including their biological basis. This theory of personality will then be applied to the explanation of addictive behaviour. Finally, the theory will be evaluated. Words in bold are defined in the glossary and the worksheet allows the opportunity to practice what you have learned.
