The importance a person places on his/her affective and behavioral involvement with close others is measured with five, seven-point Likert-type items.

The extent to which a person views him/herself as being regimented and having self-control is measured with three, seven-point items.

This six item, six-point Likert-type scale measures an individual difference characteristic that varies between people by how much weight is placed on “reason” versus “feelings” when making decisions.  Three of the statements refer to financial or product choice situations while the other three items are more general.

The degree to which a person believes him/herself to be in control and able to get his/her way is measured with five, ten-point Likert-type items.  The statements themselves are rather general and do not explicitly measure power as a trait or as a state.  Instructions used with the statements can help focus participants’ attention on one versus the other type of powerfulness.

Fourteen, five-point Likert-type items are used to measure a person’s trait-like tendency to be concerned about the needs of others as well as expecting help from them when needed.
