An issue I have with Maslow's hierarchy of needs


Welcome to the EliteFitness.com Bodybuilding Site! Please join this discussion about An issue I have with Maslow's hierarchy of needs within the Chat & Conversation category.

Excerpt: The most basic need is Physiological - check. The third need (since it is basically a relatively linear theory) is Love/Belonging - check. The top need, the highest of the "growth" needs is self actualization - check. Issue - The basic concept here is that the higher needs only come into focus once all the needs that are lower down in the pyramid are mainly or entirely satisfied. Well, why is self actualization not a more basic need? What happens to the few people who are circuited

    also, LMAO:

    Damn, perhaps this was a freudian slip, but up until a second ago I thought that said "revenue". but upon further inspection, I think it says "revenge".

    wtf

    Re: An issue I have with Maslow's hierarchy of needs

    From my POV Maslow is correct. If you don't have some sense of place to begin with, you can't estimate whether or not it fulfills your needs; from participation in the status quo may come dissatisfaction and the desire to better yourself. Then when your sense of self is solid, you're secure enough to be able to help others (without losing yourself).

    it's a hierarchy, therefore you can't have one without the lower one.

    I just can't believe we are discussing Maslow's hierarchy in here. Very cool!

    Re: An issue I have with Maslow's hierarchy of needs

    i'd like to say that venturing off the status-quo line to better oneself doesn't mean being different for the sake of attention, it means being different because it's the harder, yet right thing to do (for yourself and possibly others)

    a sharpened sense of self-realization and purpose

    I'm not joking. There will be a day when being alive is the only need,
