Which statistical method should I use when Predicting organization commitment (composed of 3 latent variables) using the five factors of personality?
Its a cross-sectional design with survey data. The Personality factors are Five independent factors (derived out of factor analysis) and each factor is measured on a likert scale, same goes for the three components of commitment and they are also measured on a likert type scale.
The studies I have read upto now uses partial correlations and hierarchical regression to link these contructs but I somehow think there has to be a better way.
Note: this question was originally asked here on Stats.SE, but the moderator there suggested posting it on cogsci.se
