Compulsive Gambling is a Behavioural Addiction

Compulsive gamblers are individuals who gamble without restraint. Pathological gamblers can’t control their impulses. Pathological gamblers gradually lose the ability to control the urge to gamble.

Personality Traits of Compulsive Gamblers

Compulsive gamblers fall into 4 main categories, according to their personality type.

A gambling addict who exhibits personality traits such as being disorganized and emotionally unstable belongs to a particular group. Gamblers who adapt poorly to situations in their lives belong to another group of persons who exhibit problem gambling. Gamblers who exhibit this personality trait also try to avoid harm to themselves and are socially distant.

The personality traits of the gambling addict who is disorganized, has difficulty adapting or is emotionally unstable leads them to have difficulty controlling their responses. Gamblers who have a globally adapted personality and gamblers who have problems controlling their alcohol use are the other two groups.

The personality traits of the compulsive gamblers lead to problem gambling in over 6 million people in the United States. Marriage and family therapists can help families cope with the effects of pathological gambling.

  49. im not sure that i agree with your post,i dont think you can pidgeon hole gamblers into a general catagory the circumstances in any problem gamblers life is more of an issue than what type of personality they have,i speak from experience because i like to gamble and recently it has been getting out of hand ,i like to think that i am a level headed man and that i can deal with problems in my life in a rational way but gambling can confuse any persons common sense ,i used to gamble out of bordem now i gamble because it has become the norm i think its about breaking up your day in different way and not being lazy in your approach to
    any indavidual problem

  50. Thanks for sharing your viewpoint Mr. Otoole.
