Forty-three college students classified as Type A or Type B on the basis of scores on the Jenkins Activity Survey Form T (JAS-T) were given the Alcohol Use Inventory and exposed to confederate drinking models in a simulated bar setting. A 20 minute matching procedure was used to record baseline drinking data, while a second 20 minute session was used to expose subjects to confederates who modeled a heavy drinking or light drinking style. Total consumption and number of sips were recorded. An Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA) showed a significant difference for total adjusted consumption between subjects exposed to the heavy or light drinking model conditions, but did not find any significant differences between Type A or Type B subjects on the dependent variables. Several explanations and suggestions for future research are discussed.
