The rumor intensity formula was developed by Gordon Allport and L. Postman and reflects the pattern for rumors to develop as a function of the importance of the information and its ambiguity.
- where R is the intensity of the rumor
- i = importance
- a = ambiguity
- Where either a or i is zero there is no rumor.
