    Glad you are happy Ok I now understand your hypothesis better.

    BUT some of the high need skills were low training, and that is the problem and they had the low R. So I guess I can point that out, but nothing else -
    no you still cannot point that out not by any means! no chance!

    so this turns out to really be a descriptive stats exercise in futility. Sigh.
    No. Lack of significance does not mean that you have wasted your time/efforts. It is by itself a finding. It is as important as a significant finding (although significance is more alluring and desirable, they are both (significance and lack of it) important).

    It is a GOOD tweak to say your hypothesis was rehected regarding those 6 significant positive correlations. It is a very valuable finding, indeed, eventhough it is not in line with your theorem.

    Glad that I could help come see us again and Good lick

    Thank you for helping me clarify all of this in my mind. I feel better now about the findings! I guess I can't say that I will "let the data lead me where it may" then get upset when it takes me away from my theory! :-) Ah, science can be so frustrating. Well I hope you have a good day, I'm digging back into my writing now with a big pot of coffee!
