Measuring and modeling the (limited) consistency of free choice attitude questions
Abstract: On average, respondents who give a positive answer to a
binary free choice attitude question are NOT more likely, if surveyed
again, to respond positively than to response negatively. However, stronger
brands obtain more repeated positive answers. Our model shows why these two
effects have to happen, even though all brands in a category benefit from
the same reliability.
