Could be a lot or could be a little, but we have to guess, because you
haven't given us the important information. That you are following Crawley
is of little or no interest. We need to know what _you_ did.

What is "model" and what's in it?


If you fitted your model using factanal then loadings(model)[,1] will fail
with the following error message

> loadings(factanal(m1, factors=3)[,1])
Error in factanal(m1, factors = 3)[, 1] : incorrect number of dimensions

Even if you did not see such a message it seems likely that "model" is in
the wrong format for loadings to extract anything useful from it.

Regards, Mark.
