  2. a. Correlations in bold are considered similar constructs, for which detailed hypotheses were created. The other correlations are of (somewhat) different constructs and are expected to be weaker than the bold font correlations for that PRAQ-outcome domain (for details, see Appendix 2). Correlations for which we had no specific expectations are not shown
