Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs
Terms in this set (8)
What is the first level of Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs?
Physiological needs include the most basic needs that are vital to survival, such as the need for water, air, food, and sleep. Maslow believed that these needs are the most basic and instinctive needs in the hierarchy because all needs become secondary until these physiological needs are met.
What is the second level of Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs?
The next level of needs are safety needs. These include needs for safety and security. These are important for survival, but they are not as demanding as the physiological needs.
What it the third level of Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs?
Social needs. Sometimes these are referred to as the love and belonging needs. These include needs for belonging, love, and affection. Maslow considered these needs to be less basic than physiological and security needs.
Relationships such as friendships, romantic attachments, and families help fulfill this need for companionship and acceptance, as does involvement in social, community, or religious groups. In the workplace, employers help fulfill these needs by creating a sense of community via team-based projects and social events. When people's social needs are not met, they tend to be unhappy. This leads to loneliness, social anxiety, and depression.
What is the fourth level of Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs?
After the first three needs have been satisfied, esteem needs become increasingly important. These include the need for things that reflect on self-esteem, personal worth, social recognition, and accomplishment.
What is the highest level of Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs?
Self-actualisation needs. These are a person's desire to become everything he or she is capable of becoming - to realize and use his or her full potential, capacities, and talents. This need can only be addressed when the previous needs have been satisfied. It is rarely met completely; Maslow himself estimated that less than 1% of adults achieve total self-actualisation.
