Table 5 Group sizes (N), means (M), standard deviations (SD), and results of the t-tests representing the difference in the ability to shift and allocate attention between people with low (group 1) and high (group 3) scoresa on decentering based on tertile split of the two decentering subscalesb, i.e. accepting self-perception (ASP) and distanced perspective (DP)

From: Exploring the relationship of decentering to health related concepts and cognitive and metacognitive processes in a student sample
