Abstract [en]

This study was designed to examine the interactive effects between

alcohol-intake and frustration effects upon art vandalism. 100 subjects, 50 men and 50

women, were randomly assigned to five experimental conditions (Control, Alcohol,

Alcohol+Frustration, Frustration and Placebo) with 10 men 10 women in each group.

Subjects were provided with the opportunity to scrawl on a picture of Adam and Eve (the

AET test). AET was also evaluated on levels of "destruction", "aggression" and

"sexuality". The results indicated that alcohol alone did not increase the degree of

vandalism, but there was a significant increase in scores of scrawling-graffiti under the

influence of alcohol+frustration. Female subjects performed graffiti-scrawling to a

significantly greater extent than male subjects in all five groups.
