Hello, I had a problem determining the type of test for my survey which the research is about the relation between video games addiction and physical functioning. I understand that we need to use pearson or pearman for our test. The problem is how do I can identify a suitable test for the video games addiction variable and physical functioning. For the game addiction scale, it has 7 DV and for physical functioning it has10 DV.

Is it not possible to aggregate the 7 addiction measurement, or the 10 physical functioning measurements, respectively,
into just 1 total value?

With kind regards

It is possible. What would you suggest to identify a relationship with two items with many variables? So we can just use Pearson's to confirm their relation?

You can aggregate the items and thereby create 2 variables, and then you can use Pearson or Spearman to
analyse the relationship between the two aggregate variables.

But I do not know anything about your items, your variables, research questons, study design, sample size
etc. so it is just a guess.

With kind regards
