Testimonial

I really appreciate your marketing scales database online. It is an important resource for both our students and our researchers as well. Since my copies of the original books are slowly disintegrating due to the intensive use, I am happy that you are making them available in this way. It is very helpful in the search for viable constructs on which to do sound scientific research.

How much a person has selected a particular way to buy or use a product in order to save money in the long-run is measured with three Likert-type items.

Using five semantic differentials, the scale measures the degree of aggravation and damage a customer intends to cause for a company.  The scale stem implies that the person is taking punitive action because of something the company has done.
