In Jan Talmons example there are four axis:
- set of questions
- set of possible answers for each question
- algorithm to calculate the result
- the result interpretation

It is the same scale when all these four axis are identical.
When they are not, each variation has to be a separate scale.

In the example I see 5 different scales.
All have the same ‘pattern’ of 3 sections,
with respectively 4, 6, 5 different questions,
plus one common algorithm.
I assume the same interpretation of the result for all 5 scales.
