Kama Muta Multiplex Scale (KAMMUS-Two)

The KAMMUS-Two is a 24 item measure designed to assess experiences of Kama Muta. The scale consists of five main sub scales: sensations, appraisals, motivations, valence and labels. The sensations sub scale in turn measures five different facets: tears, chills or goosebumps, warmth, feeling choked up, and exhilaration. The scale has been successfully validated across a number of contexts and 15 languages. The scale is available here: https://osf.io/gu28x/
