The Role of Values, Collective Self-Esteem and Consumer Susceptibility to Interpersonal Influence in Predicting Attitudes Toward Drinking in Norwegians

ABSTRACT - Excessive alcohol consumption contributes to numerous health problems and substantial economic loss. Research indicates that alcohol consumption is closely linked to attitudes toward drinking, and this linkage has often been the basis for interventions and advertising campaigns designed to reduce alcohol consumption. In the present study, 186 Norwegian participants were given measures of attitudes toward drinking, values, collective self-esteem, and consumer susceptibility to interpersonal influence. These data were used to develop a model in which interpersonal values, external values, and consumer susceptibility to interpersonal influence predicted attitudes toward drinking, and collective self-esteem predicted both values and susceptibility to interpersonal influence.

Research indicates that alcohol consumption is closely linked to attitudes toward drinking, and this linkage has often been the basis for interventions and advertising campaigns designed to reduce alcohol consumption. In the present study, 186 Norwegian participants were given measures of attitudes toward drinking, values, collective self-esteem, and consumer susceptibility to interpersonal influence. These data were used to develop a model in which interpersonal values, external values, and consumer susceptibility to interpersonal influence predicted attitudes toward drinking, and collective self-esteem predicted both values and susceptibility to interpersonal influence.
