Thirty-eight 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 AUI and observed in a simulated bar setting. The subjects were asked to drink normally and were allowed to drink beer for a thirty-minute session. Total consumption and number of sips were recorded. A Multivariate Analysis of Variance (MANOVA) showed no differences between groups on the dependent variables. A multiple regression yielded the ALII Scale 14 (Quantity) as the most influential over the dependent variable total consumption and the AUI Scale 5 (Sustained Drinking) most influential over the dependent variable number of sips when all other variables were controlled. The JAS-T scores did not correlate highly with either dependent variable but showed strong correlations with scores that are more indicative of a serious drinking problem. Suggestions for further research are discussed.
