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.

The scale has three, nine-point Likert-type items that measure a person’s belief that others are thankful for him/her.  The reason for the gratitude is unstated.

Four, seven-point Likert-type items are used in the scale to measure the degree to which a person tends to be aware of and to understand his/her emotions.

Five, nine-point statements are used to assess the value placed by a person on an attainment of social status as well as control over other people and resources.

A person's familiarity with a specified object is measured in this scale with three, seven-point semantic differentials. The objects being assessed by Becker-Olson (2003) were company names whereas Simonin and Ruth (1998) used it with brand names.

Three, seven-point semantic differentials are used to measure a person's awareness and recognition of some specific object. In the study by Roehm (2001), the focal object was a portion of a song used as background music in a mock radio advertisement.

The scale is composed of six, five-point Likert-type statements measuring brand associations with an emphasis on the consumer's awareness of the brand and the extent to which it stands out in his/her own mind.
