Does NoFap Change Your Personality?

According to a poll I made on my YouTube channel, some people can actually experience a shift personality when going on a NoFap journey.

It doesn't happen to everyone, but the change in personally does happen for quite a lot of people.

The changes in personality can range all the way from mild to significant.

There might be nerubiological reasons behind this, and I will talk more about those in a moment, but let's start by taking a look at the poll I mentioned.

Do You Find That NoFap Has Changed Your Personality?
(Results From A Poll)

I asked my subscribers, on my YouTube channel – Project Stronger Self, the following question…

“Hey guys, do you feel that NoFap has somehow changed your personality?

More than 2000 people participated in the poll, and…

  • 16% Say that NoFap did not change their personality at all…
  • 58% Say that NoFap made them more bold, confident and assertive…
  • 14% Say that NoFap has made then more goal driven…
  • 13% Say that NoFap has made them more sociable in general…

 84% of all the people who participated in the poll believe that NoFap has changed their personality. Only 16% feel that NoFap has not been shifting their persona in any direction whatsoever.

What's the most logical explanation behind NoFap's ability to shift personality?

I personally believe that NoFap indeed has the ability to shift the personality, at least a bit.

The reason for this is, in my opinion, no so much NoFap itself as the absence of porn use (which obviously go hand in hand with NoFap – no pun intended).

You see,today's online adult sites are so stimulating that they are potent enough to knock out some of the dopamine receptors in the brains reward system.

Interestingly enough, there are studies showing how for example having more dopamine D2 receptors are correlated with less social avoidance, more social status and being more of a ‘leader type'. In other words, might overuse of porn make guys feel more introverted and less ‘alpha'?

To discover more about that, take a look at a video I posted on my YouTube channel, Project Stronger Self, a while ago. I think you might find it very interesting indeed.

Take a loo at the video below to discover the link between NoFap, over-consumption of porn and personality…

Pretty interesting, huh?

Now in addition to the social avoidance, status, beta and alpha traits, you should know that dopamine is also highly related to the following…

  • Motivation and drive…
  • Mood…
  • Confidence…
  • Energy…

Let's take a look at a few comments about this from some of the guys who participated in the poll…

What Guys Are Saying About NoFap And Personality Change…

These are comments that guys posted in the comment section under the poll that was presented at the top of this post…

“Now I am more self-assured than before and I have greater control over myself. I am no longer overly self-critical, I don't experience self-deprecating thoughts anymore and I don't feel worthless all the time like I did then. My mind is now stronger and whenever pessimism threatens to plague it, I respond “NO, YOU CAN'T TRICK ME ANYMORE! YOU HAVE NO POWER OVER THS MIND!! THIS MIND IS MINE!!”. Even when I do experience failure, I move on quickly, I know better than to waste time lamenting on a failure when I can get right to working on my next success. Thank you Uncle Bob, your videos helped me a lot.” -Alex Lin-


“It's does make you confident and stuff but it makes you a HELLA goal oriented” -King-


“Yes definitely. Nofap has made me a whole different person. From childhood I was a shy, anxious and introvert type of a person, who would always choose flight in a fight or flight situation, but now after about 50+ days of nofap I can face any person or situation with utmost calmness. My built up sexual energy is like a inner fire within me, which is always ready to attack and resolve any problem with minimum efforts.”- Deepak Meena-


“I believe that nofap will make you more confident because you have more disciplined and nofap is a form of discipline since you are abstaining from busting nuts” -ICEcold Tristan 2.0-


“I don't feel awkward in social situations anymore” -Severus vape-


NoFap And Personality Change
Final Words…

In conclusion, I think it's safe to say that NoFap has indeed shifted the personality for a lot of guys out there. So, yes, it is possible.

Personally I can say that, for me, NoFap has made me much more goal driven, more confident and perhaps a bit more social.  However, I would still consider my self more of an introvert, though, and I don't think there is anything out there that can change that part of me….

…that's ok. I'm totally fine with being more of the “strong silent type”.

Sexual transmutation and achieving goals…

As far as the increase in motivation and drive goes, there's really something to be said about sexual transmutation as well.

I mean, just think about i; the drive to go out there and spread out DNA to the next generation is the strongest force in human nature. Meaning, if you deprive yourself sexual outlet period of time, and  instead channel that force into working on your goals, there's almost no limit to how much you can achieve.

On top of that, getting a better dopamine system – which you'll get when you stop hammering your brains reward system with porn – will obviously also help in making you excel in life.

Don't believe me?

That's ok…

…why not try it out for yourself 🙂
