 Questionnaire data are linked below. Questionnaire: Data, SPSS format (let me know if you need the data in a different file format): The questionnaire identifies several constructs, latent variables, and the items that should be used to measure those constructs.

Would you recommend dropping any items, and if yes which and why? Think carefully about each item and whether it makes theoretical sense to drop that item.  (b) Repeat the steps in (a) above for Empathy.
