Fishbein and Ajzen (1 975) acknowledge that a person is capable of attending to or processing about five to nine beliefs about the attitude object. These beliefs are termed salient. Since it is impossible to obtain a precise measure of all possible beliefs underlying the attitudes of various individuals, they suggest that the so­ called modal salient beliefs in a given population should be obtained. The most frequently elicited beliefs in a representative sample of the population are considered to modal salient beliefs for the population.

Fishbein, M. (1980). Understanding attitudes and predicting social behavior. Englewood Cliffs, NJ: Prentice-Hall. The best introduction to the theory of reasoned action, complete with guidelines for developing a questionnaire to measure the key constructs. H. & Chaiken, S. (1993). The psychology of attitudes.

Herein lies the importance of the theory of reasoned action from an applied perspective: careful application of the model to a specific behavioural domain will (provided the indirect measures of attitude to behaviour and subjective norm are used, as well as or instead of the direct measures) help the researcher to pinpoint the determinants of that behaviour. Knowing what determines a behaviour can then be used to design persuasive communications that try to influence those determinants, rather than influencing irrelevant factors.
