Thurstone and Chave’s (1929) equal appearing intervals scale method was adopted to develop the scale. The final scale comprised ten statements which are having universe of content, uniform distribution of scale values along the psychological continuum and high “scale values” and lower “Q” values and more or less equal number of favourable and unfavourable attitude items.
