Confirmatory factor analyses (CFA) were then conducted on the second subsample (n = 660) to investigate whether the structure found with the first subsample was sound.
Nevertheless, if we wish to determine which variables are the most similar or different using the results of the derived principle factors of Varimax technique, it is worth using cluster analysis approach to define similarities and differences among obtained variables more directly by determining the multi-dimensional distances between various groups of variables and then selecting those groups of variables within which the distances are relatively small [11] Since the implantation of factor analyses helped in reducing the dimensions and minimizing multicollinearity effect in our data, it made it easier to run the cluster analyses.
