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 four, seven-point Likert-type items that measure how much a person believes that some particular produce (vegetables and/or fruit) is not normal and has something wrong with it, with an emphasis on how it looks. 

Three, seven-point semantic-differentials are used to measure how much a person believes that an object is original and uncommon. 

With six, nine-point bi-polar adjectives, the scale measures the degree to which an object appears to be unusual and unexpected.  Given the multiple facets of the construct represented in the items and depending on the way the items are scored, the scale could be considered a measure of similarity, typicality, or novelty.  The scale is general in the sense that it could be used with a variety of objects and in a variety of contexts.  

A person’s belief that a particular advertisement is different from others to which he/she knows of is measured with three, seven-point Likert-type items.  The statements are general and do not indicate how the ad is different.

How much a person has had a particular experience is measured with four, five-point items.

The scale has three, seven-point semantic differentials that measure how much a person believes a particular advertisement is atypical and unexpected.

With four, seven-point uni-polar items, the scale measures how commonplace and ordinary something seems to be. 

The degree to which a person believes that a certain brand-related marketing strategy is commonly used among competitors in a certain product category is measured with five, nine-point semantic differentials.  The scale appears to be amenable for use with a variety of brand-related strategies.

How much a person believes a particular message is worded normally rather than being phrased in an unusual way is measured using three items. Although Kronrod, Grinstein, and Wathieu (2012) used the scale with respect to an ad-type message, the items are amenable for use with other types of messages. 

The extent to which a person believes that something is uncommon and distinct is measured in this scale with four, uni-polar items along with a seven-point Likert-type response format.  The scale is general in the sense that the items are amenable for use in a wide variety of situations when participants are given the proper instructions.
