I'm having some issues running an analysis with two categorical variables that are both non-dichotomous...
Some background information on my study: My study focuses on how young adults sexually communicate in an online dating setting, and what influences them to do so. Participants are given a simulated online dating scenario where they see an online dater's profile (with a picture and a message), and then they are given the opportunity to reply to the profile.
What I'm having trouble with is analysing how the profile's message (sorted into 4 levels based on how 'sexy' it is) correlates to how the participants responds (also coded into 4 levels of how 'sexy' their response is). I hypothesise that the 'sexier' the profile's message is, the more 'sexy' the participant will respond.
So my two categorical variables are:
How sexy the profile's message is (4 levels)
How sexy the participants response is (4 levels)
What analysis should I run for this??
