Responsiveness refers to the tendency of being attentive, supportive and empathetic in interactions with others. The Perceived Responsiveness Scale is a tool designed to measure an individual's perception of how responsive another person is to their emotional and psychological needs.

This scale consists of 12 statements that provide insights into the extent to which an individual feels understood, valued and supported by another person. The scale aims to capture the quality of the interpersonal relationship in terms of responsiveness and supportiveness. The scale can also be used to assess the degree to which people feel a romantic partner is responsive to them.
