Psychological factor was the most loaded element 0.999. For standard error (SE) and t-test, 7 of 8 factor loading values were different with statistical significance at 0.01 level. However, there was only one element, masculine leader image, which factor loading was 0.217. When considering the values of R2 which indicated inversion ratio between latent variable and commonalities, psychological dimension showed the highest value of R2 which was .998, following by political dimension of which R2 was .994. Equality of the structural income gap showed the lowest value of R2 which was .047. Overall, the model was fit with statistical significance at 0.05 level.
