Abusive Drinking in Young Adults: Personality Type and Family Role as Moderators of Family-of-Origin Influences.
Fischer, Judith L.; Wampler, Richard S.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v56 n2 p469-79 May 1994
Examined relationship between roles in the family and individual personality types and abusive drinking among young adults (n=674). Family roles and personality type were found to moderate effects of family-of-origin variables on abusive drinking: family role of hero acted as buffer between family of origin and young adult's drinking behaviors; scapegoat role was associated with heightened vulnerability.
