Folks on today’s coaching call asked for examples of 6-point Likert-Type scales. I recommend using an even numbered scale if you want to force your respondents to make a decision. If you believe your respondents may truly not have an opinion on something, use an even scale to determine how many folks are sitting on the fence. Both odd and even-numbered scales are helpful – it just depends what you want to use them to learn.

Here are a few …



>Very Frequently



>Very Rarely


Ease of Use

>Very easy


>Somewhat easy

>Somewhat difficult


>Very difficult

>Completely Agree

>Mostly Agree

>Slightly Agree

>Slightly Disagree
>Mostly Disagree

>Completely Disagree


>Extremely satisfied

>Very satisfied

>Somewhat satisfied

>Somewhat dissatisfied

>Very dissatisfied

>Extremely dissatisfied


>Extremely likely

>Very likely

>Somewhat likely

>Somewhat unlikely

>Very unlikely

>Extremely unlikely

Also, if you get stuck on the terms to use, you can always include text anchors only at each end and list the remainder as numbers only. For example,


1 – not at all important/accurate -2- -3- -4- -5- 6 – extremely important/accurate
