Friends' Interests: A Cluster-Analytic Study of College Student Peer Environments, Personality, and Behavior.
Finney, John W.
Journal of Youth and Adolescence, v8 n3 p299-315 Sep 1979
A 27-item measure assessed college peer environments in terms of friends' interests as perceived by individual students. Four dimensions of interests were identified in cluster analyses: collegiate activities, intellectual pursuits, apathy or alienation, and traditional adult orientation. These dimensions were related to social, psychological, and behavioral variables. (Author/GDC)
