What Matters/Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs
Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs
Maslow's hierarchy of needs is a theory in psychology, proposed by Abraham Maslow in his 1943 paper A Theory of Human Motivation. His theories parallel many other theories of human developmental psychology, all of which focus on describing the stages of growth in humans.
Maslow's hierarchy of needs is often portrayed in the shape of a pyramid, with the largest and most fundamental levels of needs at the bottom, and the need for self-actualization at the top.
Study Maslow's hierarchy of needs. Beginning at the bottom of the pyramid, decide which of the listed needs are currently fulfilled for you, and which needs you are pursuing.
