If you have a stimulant tolerance or engage in other rewarding behaviours pathologically (think about this one - anything from sex to food, gambling to shopping etc) then you wouldn't.

Some people will just require more by their genetics.

I've also never experienced a noticeable affect from caffeine. :dontknow: I guess it's possible some people just have a higher tolerance?

Someone with any addiction will probably find themselves less sensitive to stimulants to some degree through dopamine downregulation. People always seem to forget to consider behavioural addictions.

People who don't drink caffeine daily are more sensitive to its negative effects. Also men are more affected to the effects of caffeine than are women.
