The extent to which a consumer expresses an inclination to purchase a particular product is measured in this scale with three, nine-point semantic differentials.

The five-item Likert-scale measures a motivational state in which a customer’s imagination is stimulated by an evocative external stimulus.  In a consumer context, the inspiration is assumed to come from marketing activity although it is not stated in the items themselves.

The degree to which a customer is motivated by a stimulus (unspecified) toward the pursuit of a consumption-related goal is measured with a five-item Likert scale.  In a consumer context, the inspiration comes from some type of marketing activity and, as stated in the items, stimulates a purchase motivation.

How much a person experienced something that inspired him/her to do something is measured with four, seven-point items.  As phrased, this scale is general and could be applied in a wide variety of contexts where the focus is on a temporary state a person has experienced rather than an enduring trait.

With four, five-point items, the Likert scale measures how actively a person thought about an object and, in particular, how useful he/she believed it could be.

Composed of three, seven-point Likert-type items, the scale measures the degree to which a person’s reason for providing a product review to others was a sincere concern to help them make better decisions.  The items are general enough for use with regard to posting product reviews online or privately sharing opinions with friends. 

Six, seven-point Likert-type items measure how much a person believes he/she can stick to a budget, avoid spending when necessary, and accomplish financial goals.

With three, seven-point Likert items, the scale measures how much a customer will return to receive service from a particular provider in the future.  The items are phrased hypothetically but a very slight change in wording can make the scale relevant for use with an actual business relationship.

The degree to which a person felt involved in an activity rather than just passively observing it is measured with four, seven-point Likert-type items.  While the scale was made for use in a product demonstration context, it appears to be amenable for use in other contexts where people can either actively participate in something or just watch.   

The willingness of a consumer to shift companies with which he/she does business is measured with three, seven-point Likert-type items.
