How can I find the NCS-R DSM-IV personality disorder items referred to in Lenzenweger et al. (2007)?

The personality items can be found at Interactive Codebook and cover PEA40 - PEA49 (Zuckerman Social Desirability) and PEA50-PEA83 (IPDE).

However, the IPDE scale was the scale used in the Lenzenweger paper. Using the clinical interview NCS-R came up with the best predictors of 6 IPDE diagnoses and generated predicted probabilities for each of the full part 2 NCS-R samples. However, NCS-R did not make the personality disorder diagnostic variables public since they are NCS-R has 10 multiply imputed values for each disorder (generated 10 yes/no values from the predicted probabilities).
