Needs and Wants

Need: require (something) because it is essential or very important.

Want: have a desire to possess or do (something); wish for.

So, what IS the difference between a Need and a Want?

A Need is something we have to have in our lives in order to live.

Examples of Needs:

  • Food
  • Shelter
  • Clothing
  • Water

A Want is something we don't really need but we want to have in our everyday lives.

Examples of Wants:

  • Cellphone (Although it might not feel like it)
  • Beats Headphones
  • The latest iPhone (Or, for Android fans such as myself, The newest purchased app on the Play Store.)

But why DO we Need and Want?

It's just in our nature! Ever since the beginning of our time we have wanted to have the latest spear or need to have warm clothing--It's just a part of what makes us human! I'd like to see an everyday, average person not need or want anything. If you know someone, post a link in the comments and I will make a little link gallery of articles.
