About the overlap on the genetic and shared environmental factors

I am conducting the Cholesky model and wondering how to judge if two phenotypes significantly overlap on a genetic or environmental factor. It should be judged by the loading factor and the 95% CI, right? In the following example, only the third phenotype (P3) does not significantly overlap with the others on the A1 (genetic) factor, as the lower boundary of the 95% CI is smaller than .00. Am I right?

     A1


P1 .45 (.20, .81)
P2 .76 (.06, .82)
P3 .39 (-.21, .69)
P4 .30 (.14, .71)
95% confidence interval is presented in the parentheses

Most people find genetic

Most people find genetic covariances or genetic correlations to be easier to interpret.
