Priming and social desirability of self-reported religiosity and alcohol consumption.
This research evaluated response biases of religiosity and alcohol consumption. Religiosity was assessed before or after questions regarding alcohol consumption. Participants who indicated religiosity first reported fewer drinks and drinking less frequently. Priming religion may result in underreporting drinking and these effects are not simply the result of socially desirability.
