One possible limitation of our study is the fact that the goodness-of-fit of the DR model is better than that of the SRDT model for lineage 1.
So, suitable criteria or methods are needed that would help us strike the right balance between simplicity and goodness-of-fit, such that predictive accuracy can be maximized.

When this type of analysis is conducted, models are set up for the data studied and the goodness-of-fit statistics are used to test the hypothesis.
The most important output from a test of any confirmatory factor analysis is a list of goodness-of-fit statistics, which indicates how well the hypothesized factor model accounts for the observed covariances in one's data.
The ESEM model makes it possible to solve some of the problems associated with CFA, such as cases in which no satisfactory goodness-of-fit indexes are found or in which model modification (e.

Based on the analyses of the whole sample and the self-construal subsamples, the statistical test indicators were in line with established requirements (see Table 2), with the numerical value of [chi square]/df between 1 and 3; values of normed fit index, comparative fit index, incremental fit index, goodness-of-fit index, and adjusted goodness-of-fit index all greater than .
