  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).
