The coefficient of alienation (CA) was low from Table 1, 4 and 5 (range of value = 0.
The slight nonlinearity (flattening for correlations approaching zero, which may reflect the anchoring effects described earlier) suggests that the "best" fit may be something other than a linear function of r - perhaps more closely akin to re or the coefficient of alienation, [1 - [(1 - [r.
