Abstract

Individual differences in response to crowded residential settings were studied by examining the mediating effects of screening tendencies on 214 college dormitory residents' response to high-density settings. Screening was conceptualized as part of a coping style in which social events are structured and ranked by priority. Ss who displayed this deliberate coping style were more successful in adapting to the crowded environment and showed fewer of the effects previously identified with high social density (e.g., fatigue or psychosomatic complaints) than were Ss who did not display screening.
