In a multiple regression, the standardized coefficients (Beta) answer the question which of the independent variables have a greater effect on the dependent variable. Beta can be interpreted like the Pearson coefficient r on a scale -1 to 1. According to the table, the two independent variables AttitudesTotal and PBC_Total have similar magnitudes but opposite signs; in other words, they exhibit an inverse relationship. This suggests that they are equally "strong". However, determining which predictor (independent variable) is more important can only be determined in context using subject matter knowledge.
