indirect effects

Post by rathor1072@gmail.com » Sat Feb 01, 2020 4:46 pm

There are 2 mediating variables in my model. I am not able to find an explanation for the indirect effects results.

IV-> MediatingVariable1> DV has INSIGNIFICANT specific indirect effect (p-value 0.063)
IV-> MediatingVariable2> DV has INSIGNIFICANT specific indirect effect (p-value 0.154)
But the total indirect effect of IV-> DV is SIGNIFICANT (p=0.016)

How can I explain this?
