  1. Note. *p < .05, ***p < .001, g = Hedge’s g (effect size), α = Cronbach’s alpha, ρ = Raykov’s rho based on congeneric scores. Correlations coefficients between the RSA subscale scores for the Brazilian sample are presented in the lower diagonal and for Norway in the upper diagonal. Correlations above > .11 are significant at p < .05, and above > .16 at p < .01
