The intensity of the process is removed by questions like this: how often, seldom, more, less? For example: "How often do You watch TV?" (response options: very often, often, rarely, very rarely, don't watch TV). Questions, studying the intensity of the flow of the process used by social scientists are quite willing, but they are difficult to analyze, because their interpretation is not the same in different people.
"What do you mean a long walk home in large and small cities?". In both cases, respondents may answer that they spend a lot of time, but for a city like Moscow, it would mean about half an hour, and for someone like, say, Vladimir, - only fifteen minutes.
"What do you mean you often watch TV?". For a person with higher education is on average one to two hours a day for people with primary education it may be five or six hours. Therefore, analyzing responses like "often", "seldom", "more", "less", etc., it is first necessary to clearly know how the respondents understand these words, as their understanding may be very different from installation of a researcher.
Motivational issues are very attractive to sociologists. They are often used in the study of public opinion, for example, during the elections.
Motivational questions give an idea of the attitudes of the Respondent about how he understands and perceives certain events, etc. without going into detailed analysis of the nature of motivational values and behavior study for social studies, we will note only that they are interesting primarily as a kind of ideal model of human behavior. But the ideal presentation and actual behavior are not one and the same.
Perfect representation formed on the basis of past experience in a specific behavior is mediated by the actual situation, conditions of life. We asked women how many children they would like to have. Most often they answer: two or three children. In fact, the majority have one child, at least in Moscow.
