Imagine a scale from 0 to 100, lying on its side. It's kind of like a thermometer with very cold on the left end and very hot on the right. Or it could be a time scale with instantaneous on the left and forever on the right. Or it could represent distance with millimeter spans on the left and miles on the right. But our particular scale doesn't have specific units until we assign them. A guy named "Lickert" invented this scale. Imagine getting memorialized for something as simple as this. It can be helpful, though.
