Self-Reported and Judged Personality, Value, and Attitudinal Patterns: A Comparison of Users and Non Users of LSD-25.
Jones, Allan P.
This study is designed to assess the benefits of LSD use as well as to examine personality, value, and attitudinal variables in order to characterize users and non users. The main assessment tool used was the in-depth interview. Subjects were 31 male and 8 female users and a non user group matched for education and age. The user was characterized by an alienation from conventional society and its values, a lack of commitment to a formal organized religion, a searching for values, a lack of clear goals, and a certain psychological ineffectiveness. In regard to further research, attention must be given to those who use marijuana or LSD infrequently. The study was limited by a difficulty in developing and defining dimensions which cut across all of the groups and the use of a sample drawn from a population varying little between users and non users.
