Testimonial

This scales book is a classic in psychometrics. It is instrumental for survey researchers in the fields of advertising, marketing, consumer psychology, and other related fields that rely largely on attitudinal measures. My copy has gotten me through years of field research by helping provide testable, reliable scales.

The scale uses three, five-point unipolar items to measure how much a person describes someone as having traits stereotypically associated with males.

The degree to which a person is confident that his/her attitude toward an object is correct is measured in this scale with six, seven-point Likert-type items.

Three, seven-point semantic differentials compose the scale and measure the extent to which a person feels strong and in-control at a particular point in time.  To be clear, this scale was created to measure a person’s state rather than a personality trait or enduring characteristic. 

The five, nine-point, Likert-type scale measures how much a person expresses satisfaction with his/her relationship with a person as a result of a gift that person has given.

The extent to which a person reports feeling powerful at a particular point in time is measured with three questions and a seven-point response format.  To be clear, this is a measure of a person’s state rather than a personality trait or enduring characteristic.

Five, nine-point semantic differentials are used in this scale to measure how much a person believes that a message was persuasive and changed what he/she thought about a topic.

The importance of a person’s attitude about a particular object or topic and the certainty of his/her attitude is measured with five, seven-point items.

How graphic and intense a stimulus is perceived to be is measured in this scale with four, seven-point semantic differentials.

The scale measures the degree to which a person believes that he/she has the motivation and the ability to control and achieve desired outcomes.  The scale is general in the sense that it can be used in a wide variety of contexts.

A product's effectiveness is measured using four, seven-point semantic differentials with an emphasis on the concentration level of the product.  Given the phrasing of the items, the scale is probably limited in its use to products that are in liquid form.
