Abstract

The primary aim of the research was to examine the relatedness between the dimensions of adolescent personality and tendency to abuse alcohol. The research was conducted on the sample of 200 respondents, the final-year high-school students. The groups were equal regarding age and sex. In the examination, personality test was used to provide information on basic personality dimensions and a questionnaire on alcohol abuse, according to which the respondents were divided into consumer and non-consumer groups. Our assumption was that there is a connection between personality traits and tendency towards alcohol abuse. The results confirmed our hypothesis. Among all variables that indicate tendency to alcohol abuse, the outstanding personality feature in alcohol consumers was underdeveloped conscience, which implies the significance of its analysis in etiological research of alcohol abuse.
