Quick Mediation Analysis Question

#1
Hi Everyone,

I have a quick question about interpreting a mediation analysis from Hayes' PROCESS macro. After running a mediation analysis, I know that I have full mediation (from the LLCI and ULCI), but I don't know how to interpret the relationship. Does the IV cause the mediator to increase or decrease? And does the mediator cause the DV to increase or decrease?

Does anyone know how to interpret the mediation analysis to provide me with these answers?

Thank you so much

It is a little bit hard to help without more information. Is it possible for you to send part of the output of the analysis? Or maybe just give more details about your model?

See my paper here regarding what constitutes as full mediation. It's a simple mediation model.

Should be fairly self-explanatory.
