Abstract

The paper introduces the concept of reverse moderation in order to investigate the uniqueness of the coefficients of independent variables and non-commutative nature of interactions in moderated multiple regression (MMR) in hierarchical order. The moderation effect is 0.01and the data used was masked to maintain the integrity of an ongoing research. The research concludes that moderation and its reverse yield different results indicating the uniqueness of the coefficients of the independent variables and the interactions are not commutative. Interactions are one-way. Each case is different as shown by the results of the 20 models used.
