Loneliness

This is a four-item, four-point, Likert-type scale measuring the deficiency one perceives in his/her social relationships. Referring to an unpleasant subjective experience, this is not necessarily the same as social isolation. Therefore, at one extreme, a person could feel lonely in a crowd or, at the other extreme, could be alone and not feel lonely.
