Abstract

This study tested several predictions of the "acquired preparedness" model in both black and white samples of college students. The acquired preparedness model holds that trait disinhibition affects alcohol-related learning and, ultimately, alcohol use. This model maintains that the reward focus typical of disinhibited individuals increases the likelihood of forming overly positive expectancies about the effects of alcohol. Alcohol expectancy, then, acts as a mediator of the relationship of disinhibition and drinking behavior.
