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!

Seven statements are used to measure the extent to which a person is chronically aroused leading to impaired functionality.

Seven statements are used to measure the degree that a person indicates experiencing negative physiological and emotional symptoms, most likely as a reaction to stress.

Four semantic differentials with a seven-point response format are used to measure a person's emotional reaction being characterized by feelings of worry and anxiety.

Three, seven-point Likert-type statements are used to measure the level of anxiety and loss of control felt by the client regarding its working relationship with its advertising agency.

Fifteen five-point descriptors are used to measure a person's overall negative emotional reaction to some stimulus. The scale is a combination of three subdimensions: anger, fear, and discouragement. A five-item, seven-point scale very similar to the anger subdimension was used by Nyer (1997).
