“I Feel Like They’Re Going to Think I’M Boring”: Stereotype Threats and the Experiences of Non-Drinking Students

Consumer research lacks understanding of the mechanisms and conditions under which (potentially) stereotyped consumers operate and act in relation to non-stereotyped consumers. We address this gap by exploring the experiences stereotyping among non-drinking students, their interpretations of stereotyping, and causes and consequences of the perceived threat of stereotyping.
