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!

The four item, seven-point, Likert-type scale measures how much a person wants to make some decisions in such a way as to make someone happy and indicate how much their relationship is valued.

How much a person feels his/her life is important and that he/she is essential to others is measured in this scale with five, nine-point items.

Using three Likert-type items, the scale measures how much a person is involved in a particular hobby and identifies with it, e.g., driving, baking, fishing.

How much a consumer believes that a particular product he/she purchased was not identifiable to others nor did it draw attention.  For the scale to make sense, it probably should be used with respect to a retail store in which one’s shopping activity could be witnessed by others.
