EFA has extracted two-factor structure with satisfactory measure of sampling adequacy (0.817; p < 0.00), acceptable factor loadings > 0.50 and internal consistency of 0.813. The model fit indices in CFA are acceptable chi-square: 113.471, df: 5, GFI: 0.920, NFA: 0.835, TLI: 0.870 and RMSEA: 0.077. The AVE was < 0.50 with r < r-square.
