I have seven independent variables (likert scales 1-5) who are skewed to the right. I have one independent variable (likert item 1-5) which is skewed to the left. With SPSS (24) I want to measure what influence the independent variable have on the dependent variable.
I have read multiple articles that discuss the analysis of Likert based data, but can't find a test that fits with my data. I have tried Ordinal Regression, but seeing as I get very high numbers I believe the results are biased. (https://imgur.com/a/wM6gpqT)
1) Could the problem be that my independent variable are scales and thus have a wide range of answers, because they consist of combined items? And if so, do I have to transform them?
2) Or do I have to tranform the dependent variable, seeing as it is left skewed?
3) Are there other ways to measure regression for Likert scale variable?
Thank you very much in advance. If you need additional information, don't hesitate to ask me.
Here are two graphs, visualizing my independent and dependent variable: https://imgur.com/a/tvMR3LV
