Abstract: The aim of this study was to identify Adlerian personality profiles that distinguish non-heavy episodic drinking college students from heavy, episodic drinking college students. The BASIS-A Inventory (Wheeler, Kern, & Curlette, 1993) and an anonymous alcohol use questionnaire were administered to 159 college students in a large public university in the midwestern United States. Logistic regression analysis confirmed that the Adlerian personality profiles of non-heavy and heavy, episodic drinking college students were distinct. In addition, after accounting for socioeconomic variables, Adlerian lifestyle themes accounted for a greater amount of variance in drinking intensity.
