Overview of Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs
Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs is a theory in psychology that Abraham Maslow proposed in his 1943 paper A Theory of Human Motivation, which he subsequently extended to include his observations of humans' innate curiosity. The concept for Maslow's hierarchy of needs work was based on Kurt Goldstein's organismic theory of personality ("The Organism"(1938)).
Maslow's hierarchy of needs is often depicted as a pyramid composed of five levels: The most fundamental and basic four layers of the pyramid are grouped together as deficiency needs associated with physiological needs, while the top level is termed growth needs associated with psychological needs. If these "deficiency needs" are not met the individual will feel anxious and tense. The individual won't strongly desire a higher level of needs until the most basic level of needs are met. While deficiency needs must be met, growth needs are the need for personal growth.
From top to down, the five levels of needs are:1. Self-actualization;
3. Love and Belonging;
4. Safety Needs (Safety and security needs include: personal security, financial security, health and well-being, safety net against accidents/illness and their adverse impacts);
5. Physiological Needs (breathing, food, water, homeostasis, sex, sleep).
