I really hope that somebody can help me out. I need to run a factoranalyse on two different scales (Regulatory focus and regulatory mode) at the bottom you can read how the scoring of the data should be done. Is there somebody who can explain me how I interpret these formula and how I execute this in STATA? thank you! kind regards Corine

Regulatory Focus Questionnaire:

COMPUTE promote = (6 - resp_1) + resp_3 + resp_7 + (6 - resp_9) + resp_10 + (6 - resp_11).

COMPUTE prevent = (6 - resp_2) + (6 - resp_4) + resp_5 + (6 - resp_6) + (6 - resp_8).

EXECUTE.

Regulatory Mode:

COMPUTE assess = ((7-resp_2) + resp_6 + resp_7 + resp_9 + (7-resp_10) + resp_11 + resp_15 +

resp_19 + resp_20 + resp_22 + (7-resp_27) + resp_30) / 12 .

COMPUTE locomote = (resp_1 + resp_3 + resp_4 + resp_5 + resp_8 + (7-resp_13) + resp_16 +

resp_21 + (7-resp_24) + resp_25 + resp_28 + resp_29) / 12 .

COMPUTE lie = (resp_12 + resp_14 + resp_17 + resp_18 + resp_23 + resp_26) / 6 .

EXECUTE .
