The Differentially Discriminating Properties of Alcohol Expectancies for Female and Male Drinkers.
Thombs, Dennis L.
Journal of Counseling and Development, v71 n3 p321-25 Jan-Feb 1993
Found alcohol expectancies that discriminated between problem- and non-problem-drinking college students (n=1,148). Expectancy profile that distinguished female problem drinkers from female nonproblem drinkers was relatively distinct from profile that separated these types of drinkers among men. Alcohol expectancy with strongest discriminating value among women was "arousal and power," for men it was "physical and social pleasure." (Author/NB)
