Testimonial

The Marketing Scales website is a gold mine of information.  It is the only source that helps me understand the psychometric quality of the instruments used in past research.  I recommend that researchers bookmark this site . . . they will be back!

Temporal Orientation (Present)

How much a person reports thinking mostly about what is happening at the current time is measured in this scale using five, seven-point Likert-type items.  While none of the statements explicitly refer to the past or the future, the implication is that the focus is more on the present than on those other time periods.
