Interpreting Negative Factor Scores

by sycamore24   Last Updated July 27, 2018 07:19 AM

I used self organizing map to cluster factor scores. I used 5 variables for clustering and at the end, I have 4 clusters. In output, some means of factor scores (for every each subscale) are negative. How am I supposed to interpret these negative factor scores? Do I have to ignore negative factor scores and focus on positive ones?
