I have a weird problem and I think it is a stupid mistake, but I can't figure it out
I'm using Multidimensional scale of attitudes toward **CENSORED** and gay man translated to my language. It has been previously shown that in our version of this scale, factor analysis comes up with 2 factors: factor of modern prejudice (adoption, gay rights..) and factor of traditional prejudice (they should hide, i would be ashamed...).
It seems logical to me that those 2 factors will be highly correlated and in the same direction.
But here I have a negative correlation -0,646. I went through reproduced correlations and everything seems to be in order: those items that should be negativly correlated- they are, and those that should be in positive correlation- they also are...
could somebody please help me with understanding this?
Thank you in advance...
