This questionnaire consists of ten items. Each item has five response option: "Strongly Agree", "Agree", "Undecided", "Disagree", and "Strongly Disagree". For "pro" items, a score of 5, the highest possible score, is equated with "Strongly agree" and a score of 1, the lowest possible score, is equated with "Strongly Disagree". This scoring order is reversed for "anti" items. The lowest possible score a participant can get on this questionnaire is 10 (i.e. he/she scored 1 on each item). The highest possible score is 50 (i.e. he/she scored 5 on each item). An example of a "pro" item from my questionnaire is "Astrology is not a pseudoscience" because a concurrence with this statement implies that the participant believes astrology is credible, thus reflecting a favorable attitude. An example of an "anti" item from my questionnaire is "Horoscopes should not be considered in planning daily activities" because a concurrence with this statement implies the participant believes that horoscopes are not worthwhile, thus reflecting an unfavorable attitude. A score of 30 indicates an undecided or ambivalent attitude toward astrology because it is the median of a score of 10 and a score of 50. In order for a score to indicate a favorable or unfavorable attitude toward astrology, it has be at least one point above or below 30, respectively. A score below 30 means that the respondent rarely, if ever, had a score above 3 on any given item, and a score of 4 or more on any
