Regarding the factorial structure, analyses on the scale level showed that it makes sense to view art-of-living as an overall construct, whereas more detailed analyses of the items showed that it makes sense to have a look at the subscales. The analyses of the latent classes and the cluster analyses led to similar results but from different methodological perspectives. The results showed that there were not different subgroups with homogeneous proﬁles but rather with different general levels. The individual proﬁles were rather different but no common proﬁles were found.
In fact, there was high variability among the individual proﬁles, but there were no common proﬁles leading to subtypes. Additionally, we performed a latent class analysis, which serves a purpose similar to the cluster analysis, but uses a totally different method. In order to allow comparison with the results from the cluster analysis, we computed a latent class analysis with three latent classes. The results are shown in Fig. 1. Again, the three classes can be put into an ascending order. The means of the classes for the subscales show three classes with results similar to the cluster analysis.
