Abstract [en]

This study aimed to examine interactive effects between alcohol and frustration

in regard to graffiti. Forty-two subjects, 21 men and 21 women were randomly assigned in

equal numbers to each of the three experimental groups, namely a Control group, an

Alcohol group, and an Alcohol+Frustration group (alcohol dose: 1 ml 100% alcohol/kg

body weight). For the purposes of this experiment, a test (AET) was constructed that

provided scores of "scrawling-graffiti" (i.e., the amount of scrawling on pictures),

"destruction", "aggression", and "sexuality". An elaboration test and a test measuring the

"dispositional optimism" were also applied. The primary results indicated that (a) the

Alcohol+Frustration group scored significantly higher on scrawling-graffiti compared to

the Control group, (b) female subjects performed graffiti-scrawling to a greater extent than

male subjects in all three groups, (c) women scored significantly higher on elaboration as

compared to men. These results were interpreted as supporting the hypothesis that

alcohol intake by itself is unlikely to induce destructive behavior unless accompanied by

a "provocative" factor (e.g. frustration) that precipitates the putative expressions of

aggressiveness.
