My understanding is that the "factor structure" portion of the EFA output shows the correlations between the indicators and the factors. I have numerous indicators correlating negatively with one of my factors. How is this possible?

Please note that I am using quartimin rotation, a survey weight, clustering on a level-2 ID variable, Estimator=WLSMV because I have some indicator variables, and I have specified that those indicator variables are categorical.

One other question related to my analysis: is it possible to generate standardized factor loadings? If so, how?

Negative values in the factor structure points to negative factor loadings.

EFA is standardized.
