I have a simple question. I'm doing a multilevel regression with individuals and countries (346 countries). I have a variable that measures level of previous conflict. I rescaled this variable in a variable that goes from 0.0 (minimum) to 1.0 (maximum) (mean 0.16 and SD = 0.23). I found that I need a quadratic and a cubic term of this variable. My outcome variable are attitudes at the individual level and it goes from 0 to 9. I have found that my intercept is 1.74, my main term (conflict) is -7.00, my quadratic term is 17.32 and my cubic term is -10.15. These seem problematic coefficients, no? Or are they good?

Best way is to look at the estimated values, or mean.
