Note. [Values in brackets are correlations corrected for
unreliability; these may be underestimates, given that the reliabilities of
the factor markers were assumed to be the same as those of their
corresponding IPIP scales.] Note.
The numbers under the "+ "
heading indicate the number of positively and negatively items in the scale.
So, for example, "5+3=8" indicates that there are 5 positively
keyed items and 3 negatively keyed items, for 8 total items.
