Abstract
This study examined which of the Big five theory personality traits that had more or less inclination to develop a risk behavior connected to alcohol consumption, during the time as a student at Lunds University. Social structures and pressures, but also the physical and cognitive consequences of alcohol consumption were relevant and significant for our hypotheses and conclusions. The study results indicated that high results on Neuroticism had a correlation with the risk behavior of alcohol consumption. Extrovert individuals drink more and more often according to the results, and we could also see a negative correlation between Conscientiousness and drinking habits and drinking motivators. The cause behind the correlation was further... (More)

The cause behind the correlation was further investigated through deep interviews, where we were even more interested in the social structures and consequences of alcohol consumption. The focus was on which individuals, dependent on personality traits, that felt the most affected by student life, as well as reasons why student life had such an effect. Interesting pointers were also raised about how student life affects people's personality or if personality in accordance with our results is deducted to student
life. (Less)
Abstract (Swedish)
Studien utfördes i Lunds studentliv och det som undersöktes i studien var vilka personligheter enligt Big five teorin som hade mer eller mindre benägenhet att utveckla ett riskbeteende kring alkoholkonsumtion, att ha destruktiva dryckesmotiv. Sociala strukturer och press, men även fysiska och kognitiva konsekvenser av alkoholkonsumtion var relevant och betydelsefullt för våra hypoteser och slutsatser. Studiens resultat tydde på att högt resultat på Neuroticism och lågt resultat på Conscientiousness hade en korrelation med riskbeteenden kring alkohol. Individerna hade alltså negativa motiv bakom sin alkoholkonsumtion som leder till att alkoholen används på fel sätt. Samtidigt visade resultatet att individer med högt på Extraversion dricker...

Studien utfördes i Lunds studentliv och det som undersöktes i studien var vilka personligheter enligt Big five teorin som hade mer eller mindre benägenhet att utveckla ett riskbeteende kring alkoholkonsumtion, att ha destruktiva dryckesmotiv. Sociala strukturer och press, men även fysiska och kognitiva konsekvenser av alkoholkonsumtion var relevant och betydelsefullt för våra hypoteser och slutsatser. Studiens resultat tydde på att högt resultat på Neuroticism och lågt resultat på Conscientiousness hade en korrelation med riskbeteenden kring alkohol. Individerna hade alltså negativa motiv bakom sin alkoholkonsumtion som leder till att alkoholen används på fel sätt. Samtidigt visade resultatet att individer med högt på Extraversion dricker mer och oftare. Orsaker bakom korrelationerna undersökte vi vidare genom djupintervjuer där vi intresserade oss ännu mer för sociala strukturer och konsekvenser av alkoholkonsumtion. I fokus var vilka individer, beroende på personlighetsdrag, som kände sig
mest påverkade av studentlivet, samt orsaker till varför studentlivet har en sådan effekt. Intressanta synpunkter togs även upp kring hur vidare studentlivet påverkar människors
personlighet eller om personlighet i enlighet med vårt resultat dras till studentlivet. (Less)
