Limit yourself to adults
Limit yourself to adult individuals in order to keep the variants in their heads.
NA has certain characteristic features – in the doctrine itself – that are reminiscent of, for example, pre-oidipal thinking and functioning, that is, things that develop normally through childhood and adolescens, up to adulthood. Allowing the model to include also all ages makes it difficult to discern and address – benign and malignant – elements of such "pre-Oedipity." There are too many dependent (?) variables.
Even if the model is limited to adult individuals, one will need to be able to describe both: 1) personality organisatoryly high and low levels, 2) high and low levels (of a more temporary nature) of the spiritual commitment, and 3) the latter in both a malignant and a benign variant!
