The Marketing Scales website is a gold mine of information.  It is the only source that helps me understand the psychometric quality of the instruments used in past research.  I recommend that researchers bookmark this site . . . they will be back!

freedom

With ten Likert items, the scale measures the degree to which a person believes that his/her parent(s) made few demands on the kids while they were growing up and allowed them to regulate their own activities.

The degree to which a person believes that a particular individual has the right to make his/her own purchase choices is measured with three, seven-point Likert-type items.

How much a person disagrees with a particular ban is measured with three, nine-point items.  Along with instructions that can be created for use with the scale, the items are flexible for use with a variety of bans.

The scale uses six statements to assess how much a person believes someone or something is true to itself and does not follow social conventions.  As written, the items are best suited for describing others but with minor editing, the scale could be used to describe the respondent's perceived level of autonomy.

Six, five-point Likert-type items measure a person’s belief that societal rules and norms are overly restrictive and limit person freedom too much.

Three, seven-point Likert-type items are used to measure the degree to which a consumer feels a certain product enables him/her to express self, with an emphasis on the freedom in choosing it.

Four, eight-point items are used to measure how much a person felt free making a particular decision and how negatively he/she feels when freedom of choice is restricted.

The scale has three, seven-point Likert-type items that measure a person's belief that a particular company utilizes people in the product design process who are not completely free to produce new ideas but, instead, must conform to company rules and conventions.  There were two slightly different versions of the scale, one referring to "company designers" and the other referring to "users."

The four, seven-point unipolar items are intended to measure the degree to which a person believes that a particular brand possesses human-like characteristics associated with self-direction and stimulation.

The belief that a choice one is making is self-determined rather than being externally imposed is measured in this scale with five, nine-point Likert-type items. Botti and McGill (2011) referred to the measure as personal causality.
