Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs
We are born with certain needs and motives
Deficiency motives we are motivated to remove a deficiency or discomfort
Growth motives- even when there is no deficiency we are motivated to
develop beyond our present condition
The most basic needs have to be fulfilled before you can move up the needs
chart
Physiological needs, safety and security, belongingness and love needs,
esteem, cognitive needs (knowledge and understanding), aesthetic needs
(order beauty), need for self-actualization
Everybody needs to want to have these growth motives
Self actualization is when a person has reached the ultimate, they cannot
grow and better them selves anymore
o People never really do become self actualized
o People have moments of it but never really do
Most people fulfill in this order, but some exceptions apply
