Hierarchy of Needs Theory (Maslow) There is a hierarchy of five needs —  physiological, safety, social, esteem, and self- actualization  ( see next slide for graphic ).   A person moves up the hierarchy in a  progressive order. As each need is substantially satisfied, it is no  longer a motivator, and the next need  becomes dominant. A person can move down the hierarchy from  time-to-time due to life circumstances.
