    correlation results from spss/help with interpretations

    hello, hope everyone is well.
    I'm currently taking a research methods class and have been given an assignment to write a lab report. I'm trying to interpret the results of a correlation analysis from spss, but I'm starting to get stressed out, so I'm starting to doubt what I think is right!

    so essentially, am I correct in saying that 0.39, 0.32 and 0.25 are the only significant results? Meaning that future and cognitive impulsive buying are related, as well as present hedonistic to cognitive and affective with 0.32 and 0.25? Also, does that negative sign on the numbers indicate a negative relationship, while no sign indicates a positive relationship?
    Iím surprised that both future and present hedonistic arenít significantly correlated with any consequences! I'm guessing my hypothesis was not proven then lol

    I apologize if this is the wrong thread to ask these questions- feel free to remove/move this.

    Any help is appreciated!

    Hey kate2.

    Can you just remind me what hypothesis you are testing? (I just want to be clear on this so that I don't give bad advice because of a misinterpretation on my part).
