Clinical and Prealcoholic Personality Characteristics

  • Gordon E. Barnes


History of the Alcoholic Personality Concept The origin of the alcoholic personality concept is not easily traced. Early papers on this topic tend either to make no references to the origin of the concept or to make vague references to psychoanalytic theory. Wiener (1956) attributed the description of alcoholics as oral characters with fixation at a more passive recipient level to Fenichel. The association between homosexuality and alcoholism is attributed by Armstrong (1958) to Ferenzi. The possible importance of psychopathy as a predisposing factor in alcoholism was attributed to Bowman and Jellinek by Buhler and Lefever (1947). In general, the early research on the alcoholic personality tended to be somewhat atheoretical, originating more from the development of new personality measurement techniques, such as the Rorschach and Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI) than from any theory of alcoholism.
