About Passionate Love Scale (PLS)
Author of Tool:
Hatfield & Sprecher
Primary use / Purpose:
The PLS is a 15 item Likert-type questionnaire measuring various components of passionate love (cognitive, affective, and behavioral).
While measures previously existed for compassionate love, they did not exist for the more intense passionate love. The passionate love scale (PLS) can be used to explore cross-cultural differences, age differences, and gender differences, among others, in passionate love.
Reliability is confirmed in Hatfield and Sprecher (1986), while convergent validity is discussed in several articles (Aron & Henkemeyer, 1995; Hatfield & Sprecher, 1986; Hendrick & Hendrick, 1989; Sprecher & Regan, 1998).
