Judgment of intoxication by untrained social drinkers across drinking settings. "Subjects' perceptions of cues used to judge intoxication across different drinking setting were investigated. Drinkers at a fraternity dance party and in a college town bar rated the importance of 18 cues for making estimations of their level of intoxication.

These results suggest that subjects apply cues to intoxication differently in different situations." |||||| Bonus table:
