There are 3 independent variables and 2 mediators variables.
How to find complimentary and competing mediation is little confusing for me. Can you please help?

Hello

Connect IDVs to the DV in this model i.e. TA-->AG, TC-->AG and ID-->AG to find the direct effect also.

Next, the nature of mediation can be decided for every hypothesized mediator model with the help of steps given in

Hope it helps!
