Faculty Members' Attitudes toward Students Who Smoke: The Last Permitted Type of Discrimination.
Outten, Rebecca; Rowles, Peggy; Chambliss, Catherine
The present study assessed high school and college faculty members perceptions of students who smoke and students who do not smoke. Respondents included 37 college faculty members and 35 high school faculty members. Respondents completed a one-page survey consisting of items pertaining to current and previous personal smoking habits, motivations for smoking and not smoking, and perceptions of smokers and nonsmokers. Participants were asked to describe their impression of an average student in these two categories along the following dimensions: intelligence, hostility, judgment, artistic creativity, independence, conscientiousness, and ambition. Within subject t-test analyses conducted on the responses from high school and college faculty members revealed that smokers were rated more negatively on all of the personality dimensions assessed, except for artistic creativity.
