ABSTRACT  
A diary study of 207 college students revealed differences in motivation to give 
a speech among three academic worldview groups.  Academic ethic adherents (who do 
not drink alcohol and study/practice on weekends and weekdays) were more motivated 
overall and were more motivated days away from a performance event than weekday 
ethic adherents (who drink only on weekends but study/practice only on weekdays) 
and party ethic adherents (who drink on weekends and weekdays and use cramming 
behaviors).
