This is a handbook of scales that are used in empirical marketing and consumer behaviour research. In seven chapters, this third edition mirrors the six major areas of marketing mix and consumer behaviour variables as well as a general introduction. The six areas are: (1) traits and individual difference variables; (2) values and goals; (3) involvement, information processing, and affect; (4) reactions to marketing stimuli; (5) attitudes about the performance of business firms, satisfaction and post-purchase behaviour, social agencies, and the mar- ketplace; and (6) sales, sales management, organizational behaviour, and interfirm–intrafirm issues. For each scale, the following information is provided: construct, description, and development of the scale, the samples used in development, validity, scores, source, and references and last but not least, the actual scale items and dimensions to which they belong.
