Hello, Progressing pearson and spearman analysis, I get the data rho and PValue.

but, pearson PValue(4.41e-06) is lower than spearman PValue(0.67).....

commonly, pearson PValue is higher than spearman PValue.

Can spearman PValue be higher than pearson PValue?

If possible, I'd like to know why such a value comes out.

or not my data is wrong.

it can easily happen - e.g. bottom right plot from the quartet https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anscombe%27s_quartet
