  R2 effect (CI) p-value Adj. p-value
Global Index Score 0.309  
Depressive T 0.403 −2.2 (−3.5; −0.9) 0.001 0.005
Cyclothymic T 0.425 −3.0 (−4.5;-1.4) < 0.001 0.002

Anxious T 0.319 −1.0 (−2.9;0.9) 0.293 0.880
  1. effect: regression coefficient quantifying the effect of a 20% increase in the respective temperament score (except hyperthymic temperament: quantifying the effect of a unit increase in the temperament score); CI: 95% confidence interval; adj. p-value: adjusted for testing five temperaments (Bonferroni-Holm method). T: Temperament
