[en] This paper explores the relationship between rating scales and response
style using experimental data from a sample of 1500 households of the Innovation
Panel (2008) which is part of the Understanding Society database.
Two random groups of individuals are being asked about their level of job
satisfaction using a self-assessment questionnaire through two (7 and 11
points) rating options. By comparing the two groups, we explore the effects
of the different rating scales on Extreme Response Style (ERS). The
experimental design of the data enables us to show that both high and low
Extreme Response Style (ERS) are correlated with personal and demographic
characteristics. In addition, when comparing the shorter to a longer scale,
we show that the survey design may generates tendency to choose responses
at the extreme values of the distribution.
