Correspondence rules should be stated explicitly to allow TESTABLE
HYPOTHESES to be derived from them.

Dependency and reassurance-seeking feelings of loneliness fears of
abandonment. [A tree like sprouting figure]. Correspondence rule is combining
two branches with limbs to form one; dependency with personal health correlate to
