  1. Mn = mean. SD = standard deviation. Mdn = median. Q1 = percentile-25. Q3 = percentile-75. min = minimum score. max = maximum score. asym = asymmetry. kurt = kurtosis. Item-rest = correlation coefficient item-rest (r between each item and the remaining items belonging to the same factor). a = typical asymmetry error = 0.08 for all items. b = typical kurtosis error = 0.17 for all items. Values obtained from the total sample (nT = 826).
