Text in bold represent corrections added on 15 May 2013 after initial online publication on 2 August 2012. Values in tables and text have been corrected in order to rectify publication bias and the validity of conscientiousness in Appendix B.
In the initial publication, Appendix B included a study that was not reflected in the meta-analysis, and omitted another study that was included in the meta-analysis. In addition, the ks, Ns, and estimates that were reported in Table 3 for four of the conscientiousness analyses were incorrect, and several of the rows for agreeableness also contained errors. For the most part, the errors resulted in observed correlations that were incorrect by .01, affecting the calculations for the confidence intervals of those estimates. Nevertheless, the discussion of the authors' findings for Table 3 is still valid. The authors would like to apologize for any inconvenience caused by the errors, and would like to thank Sven Kepes and Mike McDaniel for making us aware of the need for the corrections.
