Maslow's Theory Coming Soon.....
By De'ja Ramsey
Maslow's Theory or Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs is a five stage model explaining needs that should be met by a person. In 1943 Abraham Maslow wanted to let the world know about five motivational needs called the hierarchy of needs. To him one must satisfy lower level basic needs before continuing on to meet higher level growth needs. Maslow noted only one in a hundred people become fully self-actualized because our society rewards motivation primarily based on esteem, love and other social needs.
Second Level: Safety Needs
This level pertains more to children than anyone. The reason being is because they can not really take care of their selves. Safety can be anything with locking your doors and putting an helmet on when riding a bike. Examples of safety needs are personal security, financial security, health and well-being, and safety nets against accidents.
Fifth Level: Self Actualiztion
This level refers to what a person's potential is and the realization of that potential. Individuals may perceive or focus on this need very specifically. Examples of self actualization are realizing personal potential, self- fulfillment, seeking personal growth, and peak experiences.
