Factor analysis - principal axis factoring

Hello everyone,

I have questions about "extracted" communalities from my FA and multicollinearity among items.....


My primary goal is to describe relationship among items and to test the theory behind it..

On one of the factors i have two theoretically very important items with low extracted communalities (0,405 and 0,397), and the total value of the determinant is 1,175E-7 without Heywood cases...

My question is whether the above-mentioned problems can cause serious adverse effects, since i don't intend to use extracted factor scores in subsequent analysis...



Best wishes,
