This sentence still has trouble: "If the latent variable is ’driving’ the association and is positively correlated to the criteria variable, then the correlation will be positive, if it is the remaining variance, it will be negative, and if it is both or neither it will be near zero."

(It's both unclear and grammatically challenged.)

Maybe:

"If the general factor is ’driving’ the association and is positively correlated with the criteria variable, then the correlation between factor loadings and the effect sizes of the predictor -criterion associations will be positive. However, if the association is driven by the variance not attributable to the general factor, the correlation will generally be negative. And it will generally be somewhere in between if the association is driven by a mix of general and non-general factors."
