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.

Fear of One's Death

The scale is composed of six, seven-point Likert-type statements that are intended to measure the degree to which a person thinks about and is disturbed by thoughts regarding his/her death.  The scale was called existential insecurity by Rindfleisch, Burroughs, and Wong (2009) and fear of one's own death by the originator (Wittkowski 2001).
