st: factor score option

Hi, Sir/Madam,

   I have a question regarding the "predict" after factor analysis. I
first just use "predict X1 X2", it gives me one set of factor scores;
then, I tried to use "predict X3 X4, r" it gives me another set of
factor scores; I tried a third "predict X5 X6, b", I got a third set.
All of them are different in mean, min and max. What is the default
setting for "predict"? Which one would you recommend? thank you.
