The Celebrity Attitude Scale is an insightful tool used to objectively evaluate an individual's level of interest or obsession with celebrities. This scale is composed of 23 carefully crafted statements that delve into various dimensions of a person's celebrity-related attitudes and behaviors. These statements explore areas such as emotional investment in a celebrity's life, the impact of this interest on daily living and the intensity of the fascination.
Participants respond to each statement, providing a detailed view of their personal engagement with celebrity culture. The scale is structured to identify potential areas of excessive preoccupation or unhealthy obsession. For instance, high levels of agreement with statements indicating deep emotional involvement or significant impact on personal life can highlight areas of concern regarding the individual's relationship with celebrity culture.
Utilizing this scale we can obtain valuable insights into the nature and extent of a person's celebrity worship. This understanding is crucial for identifying whether one's fascination with celebrities is a casual interest or if it leans towards an obsession that could potentially impact mental health and well-being.
