Abstract

Using a modified Q-sort test administered to 13 male alcoholics, the authors attempted to assess alcoholics' expectancies prior to drinking and to compare these with their subsequent self-reports of feeling states and behavior during experimentally induced intoxication. They found that during intoxication subjects observed significantly more aggression, sexuality, and dysphoria in themselves than they had anticipated. A marked increase in irresponsible behavior, however, was successfully predicted.
