After reading the two articles by Pick and Teo (2017) and Pais (2017), as well as the articles by Hayes and others, what are the advantages of applying this analysis? How do an inadequate design, a flawed analysis strategy, and lack of attention to assumptions affect the use of mediation and moderation analysis? How does the researcher’s lack of theoretical framework concerning variables affect the application of mediation and moderation analysis?
