Maslow's Hierarchy

Maslow's Hierarchy of needs has 5 levels. He refers to these levels as human growth. The first level is Biological & Physiological, second is safety, third is love and belongings, fourth is esteem, and the fifth level is self-actualization.

Biological&Physiological- Air, Food&Drink, Shelter, Warmth, Sex, Sleep

Safety-Protection from elements, Security, Order, Law, Stability, Freedom from fear

love&belonging-If you seek to be loved you may be disappointed because you can't control others

Esteem-love&respect you receive from others

Self-actualization- this refers to the need for personal growth and discovery

This hierarchy suggests that people are motivated to fulfill basic needs before moving on to other, more advanced needs.
