  1. Note: Table 2 presents the factor loadings, meaning the correlation (Pearson’s r) between each variable measured and the factors after their orthogonal rotation, thus making it possible to facilitate the interpretation. To better reveal the structure of the values associated with money, the table ignores the correlations below 0.30 and places the items in the order of Table 1
