As already seen in the preceding table, 2 to 4 factors were grouped. The first reason joining grouped three factors. The first factor joined indicators that have more of "selfish" values, of instrumental rationality, for example, "I joined Pastoral to meet new people" and "I joined Pastoral to feel good". The second factor grouped indicators that tend towards more "altruistic" substantive rationality, such as "I joined Pastoral because I want a better world".
The third factor generated shows indicators with selfish-life value. As for the expectations from the work, it created two factors: one with "altruistic" values and another with "selfish" characteristics. The first grouped only two indicators: "I hope I can help mothers have a calm delivery and not abort" and "I hope I can heal children through my work at Pastoral". The second factor grouped the other eight indicators, with essentially selfish values, such as I hope that my work at Pastoral can help me better cope with children and I hope to gain knowledge from my work at Pastoral.
However, it should be noted that as the loading factor of the indicators on this factor decreases, indicators with altruistic values appear, such as "I hope I can rescue human dignity through my work at Pastoral". Regarding the reasons for "staying" two factors also emerged, with no clear difference in the grouping of indicators found; "altruistic" indicators mixed with "selfish" indicators. The first factor aggregated highly "altruistic" indicators such as "What keeps me at Pastoral is the love for others" and indicators with "selfish" value such as "I remain at Pastoral to transmit knowledge to families".
The second joined highly "selfish" indicators such as "I remain at Pastoral because I have the opportunity to learn how to deal with children" and indicators with "altruistic" value such as "I remain at Pastoral because of the involvement with families and children". Finally, on the grounds of quitting, 4 factors were grouped: one with "personal" reasons, "organizational", "religious", and the fourth factor, with only one indicator: "I would leave Pastoral due to health problems".
The first grouped indicators such as "I would leave Pastoral due to lack of time". The second joined indicators such as "I would leave Pastoral due to lack of volunteers". The third contains indicators such as "I would leave Pastoral if I lost my faith in God". The first two did not have pure grouping, for they joined indicators with common characteristics: despite being classified as "personal" reasons, they include statements with organizational content, such as "I would leave if there were changes in the operating structure of Pastoral".
Similarly, the phenomenon repeats itself in the factor that was classified as "organizational" with "personal" indicators. The following is a chart showing a summary of the number of factors and characteristics of each reason. Thus it is clear that the factors were grouped generally around selfish and altruistic values. These results are in line with several studies on this issue, both nationally and internationally.
Outside Brazil, authors as Soupourmas and Ironmonger , Yeung , Dolnicar and Randle , Anderson and Shaw , and Prouteau and Wolff also found similar results to those found in this research. This study aimed to present the results of validity after the first application of a quantitative instrument that aims to identify profiles of volunteers at Pastoral. In this context, this instrument shows evidence that it is able to identify and differentiate profiles of volunteer workers in this area, since it has achieved good rates of reliability and adequacy of factor analysis.
It has also reached results similar to those of studies carried out in Brazil and abroad. It should be noted that in Brazil, most studies use qualitative analysis, which can increase the importance of this instrument. However, much remains to be done. Although we have been able to identify altruistic and selfish attitudes of volunteers in a satisfactory manner, the development of this instrument does not seek to be able to classify these attitudes in two distinct poles - egoism versus altruism - but in five, trying to prove what Souza, Medeiros and Fernandes devised.
In this sense, this study provides some directions.
Firstly, there is a need to improve the semantic meaning of certain factors, or even increase the number of indicators so they can generate some correlation among them. The same must be done with the factor "expectations", for indicators with smaller loadings, of altruistic sense, can be grouped with others of selfish sense, or perhaps with other altruistic indicators, so that they can create other factors. Secondly, improve the meaning of the indicators, especially in the grounds of "staying" should be another task, because the two factors created gathered altruistic and selfish indicators.
In addition, four factors emerged in the grounds of "quitting", which were not conceptually anticipated. Therefore, understanding this evidence, could be another gap to be filled.
