This chapter considers the question of whether behavioral manifestations of alcoholism can be used to define meaningful types of alcoholics similar to those described in other populations. The results indicate that two distinct types of alcoholics that have been described in other populations cannot be differentiated among Navajos, and that the variables that are said to comprise each type are not more highly correlated with each other than they are with the variables that are said to comprise the other type. Behavioral measures of problems with alcohol are cumulative as a measure of severity, but they do not form clusters of discrete syndromes.
