  • Emotional responsiveness: The level of emotional lability, tension, irritation and anxiety.
  • Self-control: The level of an individual’s self-discipline, consistency, reliability and adherence to norms.
  • Self-reflection: The level of intellectual flexibility and nuanced thinking as a measure of self-reflection.
