Putting numbers may confuse some as some of these might be used interchangeably and relatively to the experience of the person speaking. If they were exact like that, they would be used in science. It may be a good place to start for some though.

"Seldom" and "often" seem like opposites to me and are given as antonyms in the dictionary, so they should probably be opposite each other if you are going to use percentages. So if "often" is 75%, then "seldom" should be 25%. Probably the same with "usually" and "rarely". "Rarely" seems stronger to me than "seldom", but different people may use them differently. It would be good to keep that in mind when using.
