Abstract:To conclude whether personality and the attitude of young adolescents have an influence of their alcohol behavior, this study analyzes 90 adolescents. Altogether they derive from four different homes in Germany. The consumption of alcohol rises each year and the age of beginning with alcohol becomes lower and lower. Because of this it is very interesting to look at the precise behavior of girls and boys who doesn’t live at secure home. Thesefor these people are a riskgroup. The constructs of the Theory of Planned Behavior (TPB) and the Prototype Willingness Model are used in this study to analyze the determinants. Further, the questionaires, which are given to the adolescents include questions to figure out, if the personality type sensation seeking and a positive attitude are present by this kind of people who drink a lot of alcohol. Differences in the age of beginning and other determinants are also studied. The analysis show that not al results of the adolescents can be evaluated because the differences in response between the four goups are so huge that the individual differences cannot be seen. Therefor all results are only presented within the descriptive statistics. Other analysis show that the age of beginning was about by circa tien years and that there were no significant differences between boys and girls. The relation with sensation seeking and the other determinants of the TPB and the PWM was not considerable. Finally there was clear evidence that the intention is a better and more significant assertion than the behavior and that particularly the prototype similarity of the PWM has an obvious influence on the intention.
