Perceived time horizon is measured with 6 items.
Participants are asked to rate how each item applies to themselves using a 7-point Likert rating scale (see below). Items that are positively worded are flipped so that higher ratings on all items indicate a longer perceived time horizon. The total score is the mean of the item ratings, with a higher score indicating a longer perceived time horizon.
Participants are presented the following items:
|Item no.||Item||Flipped (f)|
|1||Many opportunities await me in the future.||(f)|
|2||I expect that I will set new goals in the future.||(f)|
|3||I have the sense that time is running out.|
|4||I can do anything I want in the future.||(f)|
|5||There are limited possibilities in my future.|
|6||As I get older, I experience time as more limited.|
Response choices for each item:
|Neither agree nor disagree||4||4|
