9/21/2020Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs | Simply Psychology3/13Growth needs do not stem from a lack of something, but rather from a desire to grow as a person. Once these growth needs have beenreasonably satisfied, one may be able to reach the highest level called self-actualization.Every person is capable and has the desire to move up the hierarchy toward a level of self-actualization. Unfortunately, progress is oftendisrupted by a failure to meet lower level needs. Life experiences, including divorce and loss of a job, may cause an individual to fluctuatebetween levels of the hierarchy.Therefore, not everyone will move through the hierarchy in a uni-directional manner but may move back and forth between the differenttypes of needs.The original hierarchy of needs five-stage model includes:Maslow (1943, 1954) stated that people are motivated to achieve certain needs and that some needs take precedence over others.Our most basic need is for physical survival, and this will be the first thing that motivates our behavior. Once that level is fulfilled the nextlevel up is what motivates us, and so on.1. Physiological needs- these are biological requirements for human survival, e.g. air, food, drink, shelter, clothing, warmth, sex, sleep.If these needs are not satisfied the human body cannot function optimally. Maslow considered physiological needs the most important asall the other needs become secondary until these needs are met.2. Safety needs- Once an individual’s physiological needs are satisfied, the needs for security and safety become salient. People want toexperience order, predictability and control in their lives. These needs can be fulfilled by the family and society (e.g. police, schools,business and medical care).For example, emotional security, financial security (e.g. employment, social welfare), law and order, freedom from fear, social stability,property, health and wellbeing (e.g. safety against accidents and injury).3. Love and belongingness needs- after physiological and safety needs have been fulfilled, the third level of human needs is social andinvolves feelings of belongingness. The need for interpersonal relationships motivates behavior
