  8. Social drinking will correlate positively with the fantasy themes of sex, aggression, and change of state.McClelland, David C. - A cross-cultural study of folk-tale content and drinking, 1972 - 4 Variables

    This book chapter tests new and pre-existing theories (Horton, Field, Bacon et al.) for the cause of variation in drinking across cultures. Folktale content is used to test psychological variables more directly than has been done previously. Folktale content is analyzed programmatically with an acknowledged error level of up to one-third. Results lend support to Field's 1962 theory that loose social organization facilitates drinking.
