A new study that puts people into one of four categories when they're drunk could lead to new treatments for alcohol abuse.

University of Missouri researchers classified participants as either a "Hemingway," "Mary Poppins," "Nutty Professor," or "Mr. Hyde."

"Hemingways" reported the smallest number of personality changes and decrease in organizational and intellectual skills. "Mr. Hydes" became less responsible and more hostile, while those classified as a "Nutty Professor" became less inhibited after a few drinks. "Mary Poppins" describes what some may call "happy drunks."

Researchers say their study could help customize alcohol intervention programs based on personality type.
