Hello and thanks in advance for your help!
I have conducted and EFA for a scale I made that includes 13 items. Of these items, 2 are recoded. Looking at the rotated component matrix I see that this scale has 2 factors, one with 11 items and one with the 2 recoded items. What does this mean and how do I decribe this? Does anyone know of a journal article or citation that deals with this sort of issue.
