This scale uses five, seven-point uni-polar items to measure how much a person feels nervous and afraid.

The extent to which a person currently feels anxious and nervous rather than calm and relaxed is measured with eight, seven-point uni-polar items.

The extent to which a person considers some particular object as being weird and creepy is measured with three, seven-point items.

The scale has eight items that measure how much a person is bothered by things related to death and disconnected body parts.  (Most of the items have some connection to death and all but one of the items refer to human bodies or parts.) 

With six, nine-point Likert-type items, the scale measures the level of emotional discomfort that was experienced when a stimulus evoked thoughts about one’s morality.

How much a person feels worried and anxious after exposure to an advertisement is measured with three, seven-point items.

How positively or negatively a person feels about an object is measured with ten, five-point items.  Unlike many, if not most, measures of affect, the items in this scale are full sentences rather than semantic differentials.  The sentences are easily modified for a variety of objects.

Five, seven-point Likert-type items measure a customer’s attitude regarding his/her susceptibility to being harmed because of the personal information collected by a company.
