### Multiple Mediation: Intepretation of sig. total indirect effect with insig. specific indirect effects

Hi together, I am trying to conduct a multiple mediation analysis and hhave now the result of a significant total indirect effect but only insignificant specific indirect effects for all mediators. I don't know how to interpret these results. According to Carrión, Nitzl and Roldán (2017) in "Partial...

### Reflective-Formative Construct - Unique Proportion of Variance

Hello together, according to MacKenzie et al. (2011) the reliability of formative first-order constructs can be assessed by excluding one of the first-order constructs one after another to calculate the unique proportion of variance they explain in the second-order constrct. However, this recommenda...

### Second-Order Formative Construct: Weight of only one of four FOCs is significant

Hi together, I have a second-order reflective-formative construct with four dimensions. I used the repeated-indicator approach with mode B and path weighting. The problem I face is that one of the FOCs has very high weight (0.8), while the weight of the other FOCs is low, insignificant and also nega...

### Second-Order Reflective-Formative Construct: Assessing Multidimensionality

Hello together, I am fairly new to SEM in general and use SmartPLS to test my reflective-formative second-order construct Perceived Transparency as a result of enterprise system implementations for my master thesis. I use the repeated-indicator approach to model the second-oder construct (HOC) and i...
