|Title:||Alcohol Involvement and the Five-Factor Model of Personality: A Meta-analysis||Contributor(s):||Malouff, John Michael (author); Thorsteinsson, Einar Baldvin (author) ; Rooke, Sally Erin (author); Schutte, Nicola (author)||Publication Date:||2007||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/4125||Abstract:||The purpose of this meta-analysis was to quantify the relationship between the Five-Factor Model of personality and alcohol involvement and to identify moderators of the relationship. The meta-analysis included 20 studies, 119 effect sizes, and 7,886 participants. Possible moderators examined included: five-factor rating type (self vs. other); study time-frame (cross sectional vs. longitudinal); sample type (treatment vs. non-treatment); type of alcohol involvement measure used; gender of the participants; and age of the participants. The meta-analysis showed alcohol involvement was associated with low conscientiousness, low agreeableness, and high neuroticism, a personality profile that: a) fits on the low end of a superordinate personality dimension that has been called self-control; and b) makes treatment difficult. Several significant moderators of effect size were found, including the following: studies of individuals in treatment for alcohol problems showed a more negative pattern of personality traits than did other studies; crosssectional studies, but not longitudinal studies, showed a significant effect for agreeableness, perhaps suggesting that low agreeableness may have a different causal link to alcohol involvement from the other factors; mixed-sex samples tended to have lower effect sizes than single-sex samples, suggesting that mixing sexes in data analysis may obscure effects.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Journal of Drug Education, 37(3), p. 277-294||Publisher:||Baywood Publishing Co Inc||Place of Publication:||Amityville, NY, USA||ISSN:||0047-2379||Field of Research (FOR):||170106 Health, Clinical and Counselling Psychology||Socio-Economic Objective (SEO):||920410 Mental Health||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Other Links:||http://baywood.metapress.com/app/home/contribution.asp?referrer=parent&backto=issue,4,7;journal,8,154;linkingpublicationresults,1:300320,1
