Guilt and help from friends: variables related to healthy behavior.
Midwestern Psychological Association. Meeting. Chicago IL (USA), 1992/05.
American college students' self-reported status regarding 13 health-related behaviors, and several potential predictors of healthy behavior were assessed.
Healthy behaviors were, at best, weakly related to being informed about or agreeing with a rule that the unhealthy alternatives were dangerous.
Healthy behaviors were more strongly related to reports that guilty feelings would result from choosing the unhealthy alternatives and that friends would help with the healthy behaviors.
Higher levels of reported self-control also predicted healthier behavior.
