Also, I was prescribed methyphenidate for years for ADD, and it didn't do diddly. Tried snorting it a couple times too - made me a little paranoid, but that's it.

Then again, methylphenidate is a dopamine reuptake inhibitor. I can't imagine that there could be any kind of genetic issue that could sabotage this - I'm pretty sure all human beings have a dopamine system.
Dopamine and serotonin have, interestingly, also been connected to narcissistic supply. Apparently we get a little serotonin rush every time we get supply.

I've got OCD too, so it could be that my brain is all wonky. So maybe the drug did something, just...not something I noticed. SSRIs made me goddamn crazy, paranoid, weirdly suicidal.
They put some normal healthy people on SSRIs and made them play an ultimatum game, where you could choose to lose in order to help a friend, or say screw 'em and win. The people with higher serotonin were more likely to be nice.
Other stuff says...."evidence indicate that genetically determined variability in serotonergic gene expression influences complex traits including that of inappropriately aggressive behavior"....
