Hi, I've run an EFA with 26 variables, 8 out of them were categorical. The model suggested 5 factor but I've got factor loadings who were greater than 1 or negative. For example, AROAD. Also some variables held small factor loading, such as LUMHHI, BROAD.
Would you have any suggestion? Shall I think about get rid of them? Thanks.

I am really new to mplus and EFA, I wanted to post more of the output but it exceeded the size limitation in one post. I am wondering is there any other ways to post the whole output? thanks!
