Convergence validity: Yes, rRD1,RD2 = 0.306** and rIP1,IP2 = 0.396* are high and significant; 
Discriminant validity: Yes, rRD1,RD2 = 0.306** and rIP1,IP2 = 0.396* >> |rRD1,IP2| = 0.044 and |rIP1,RD2| = 0.068; 
Construct validity without either a combination of trait and method effects or a mono-method bias: Yes, rRD1,RD2 = 0.306** and rIP1,IP2 = 0.396* >> |rIP1,RD1| = 0.18 and |rRD2,IP2| = 0.134.
