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!

The scale measures the degree to which a customer of a branded product or store engages in conspicuous behaviors that can be visually observed by others in order to communicate he/she is a customer of the brand.  Three, seven-point Likert-type items compose the scale. 

This three-item, seven-point scale measures a person’s inclination at the current time to react toward others in a physically violent manner if threatened.  The wording of the items is meant to focus participants’ responses on their current states rather than their longer-term trait-like tendencies. 

How much a person indicates an inclination to engage in three particular behaviors with respect to a website is measured with a seven-point Likert-type format.

The scale uses Likert-type items to measure how much a person believes that he/she would not patronize (shop, return to, use) an establishment again in the future and, instead, go to a different one.  Two- and three-item versions are described.

Five, seven-point Likert-type items measure a consumer’s commitment to buy a particular brand in the future if it is available. 

The scale measures a customer’s intention to continue purchasing a specified good from the same specified retailer as was purchased from in the past.  Four, seven-point Likert-type items compose the scale.  The sentences are stated hypothetically but can be easily adapted for measuring actual repurchase intentions by replacing the word “would” in each sentence with “will.”

With six, seven-point items, the scale measures the likelihood that a person will download and use a mobile financial app in various ways.

With three, seven-point Likert-type items, the scale measures the extent to which a person contacted someone or an organization that has legal expertise and may help with a complaint against a party.  (The party is not explicitly referred to in the scale but a fitting example would be a service provider.)
