The scale uses three statements to measure a consumer’s belief that he/she has expert level knowledge with respect to a specific product category and is an excellent source of information for friends buying such a product.

Five, five-point Likert-type items are used to measure the degree of importance a consumer places on mass media advertising when shopping for a specified product.

This is a four-item, five-point that measures the importance a person places on independent, expert information sources.

This scale is a seven-item, seven-point measure of the amount of confidence a consumer has in "personal independent" sources (relative or friend) as well as "personal advocate" sources (store manager or employee).

A six-item, seven-point summated rating scale is used to measure the frequency with which one contacts professionals in the health care industry for information about health-related issues.

The purpose of the scale is to evaluate the importance of a group of information sources in learning about a health-related topic. The common theme among the six sources composing the scale is not perfectly clear. Some are personal, professional sources (items #1 and #2 below) while the rest are promotion materials.

Respondents are asked to use a five-point scale to rate how important each of nine sources is in learning about a specified topic. The nine information sources mainly involve the traditional mass media.

Three items are used in this scale to measure the importance placed by a consumer on information from websites in learning about a specified topic.

This five-item, five-point Likert-type scale measures the degree of importance interpersonal information sources have to a person when shopping for a certain product.

The five item, seven-point Likert-type scale is intended to measure the value of various sources of information that could have been used when a recent decision was made. Since the items are summated, the relevance of any one source is not as important as what the items as a whole have in common.
