An obsession (e.g., psychic energy is focused in one area of the personality) is the main symptom of the pursuit of perfection. (Woodman, Marion. Addiction to Perfection. pp 51-52. Canada: Inner City Books, 1982.)

It is no coincidence that a wealthy and privileged society is so prone to addictive behaivors...when pleasure becomes an obsession, the result is addiction. If a source ofpleasure is truly fullfilling, there is a natural cycle that starts with desire and ends with satiation. With addictive behaviors, addiction never closes the cycle.s (Chopra, Deepak, PhD. How to Know God. pp 82. NY: Three Rivers Press, 2001.)
