the first thing im thinking is that you need to really clearly define your scaling system. because in my opinion, it has a couple of weakneses; mainly in that its not quantitative, and that you surveyed totally different people who may have had different perceptions of the scaling system. you could 'solve' this by just explicitly talking through the system and then just SAYING that you explained this to the surveyed people. you could maybe add a quantitative detail to the system.
