  1. N = 20 raters. Bolded entries are mean ratings that round to “2” on a 0–3 scale (= > 1.5). Italicized and starred entries are traits in the AMPD BPD algorithm that did NOT reach this level in the current study. The ICC between time one and time two was 1.0, indicating no significant changes in ratings
