Trying to understand these two correlations using the Pearson r.

How do i interrupt the relationships

1)Just World and Locus of control

r=-.224

p-value=.210 (Sig. 2-tailed)

2)Just world and Authoritarianism

r=.329

p-value=.062

3)Locus of Control and Authoritarianism

r=-.203

p-value=.258

Actually three correlations...

Here are a few hints:

The Pearson r is the correlation coefficient and is a measure of correlation, which can be positive or negative. The closer the correlation is to 0, the weaker it is. The closer to +1 or -1, the stronger it is. If you have a correlation of +1 or -1, then this is considered a perfect positive or negative correlation.

You have two negative (-) correlations and one positive (+) correlation. With negative correlations, when one variable goes up (increases), the other goes down (decreases). With positive correlations, the variables go up or down together.

I hope this helps.
