Abstract: The authors examined the relationship between self-monitoring and pluralistic ignorance and self-reported sexually aggressive behaviors by freshman and sophomore male college students. Results indicated that self-monitoring style and level of pluralistic ignorance were correlated positively with sexual aggression. The authors review relevant literature, present research findings, and discuss implications of the findings for college counselors.
