  1. Note: The inferior diagonal presents correlations among latent variables, estimated by structural equation models; the superior diagonal presents coefficients of determination (i.e., squared correlations); all correlations above 0.06 were statistically significant (i.e., p < 0.05, if r ≥ ±0.06)
  2. SDA scale of diversity of activities, ns non-significant
  3. aVariable measured by a single item
