I have a model which consists of 19 questions, which are divided in three factors (factor 1 - nine questions, factor 2 - six questions, factor 3 - four questions). For this I did a factor analysis and saved factor scores (computed by regression method) as variables.
But these three factors measure one big construct, to me. Now I was wondering if I can put the three created scores variables in a factor analysis again and extract one factor this time and save its factor scores as a variable, - to measure the overall construct.
Is this correct/possible to do?
** additional information ** To give some aditional information: I extracted the factors based on 'maximum likelihood', with a promax rotation. Saved these scores as regression variables, put those three variables in the factor analysis (SPSS). With the same method and was wondering if that would be a good construct.
In this case I factored, innovativeness (9 items), pro-activeness (6 items) and risk taking behavior (4 items). And I wanted to measure the overall construct, Intrapreneurial Behavior (IB) in this way. What do you suggest, how to deal with this issue to create a construct for IB?
