First, I will describe Maslow's pyramid in a consistent manner, and then I will reflect on whether I have completed all of the levels of the pyramid and which one I am on.
What is Abraham Maslow's background?
He was an American psychologist who was born in Brooklyn, New York, in 1908. He is best known as one of the founders and main exponents of humanistic psychology, a psychological current that postulates the existence of a fundamental human tendency toward mental health that manifests itself as a series of search processes for self-actualization and self-realization. In psychology, he is commonly referred to as a "third force," and his viewpoint is theoretically and technically situated between the paradigms of behaviorism and psychoanalysis.
His most recent publications establish him as a forerunner in transpersonal psychology. Maslow's pyramid, which I shall now discuss, is the most theoretical progression.
Maslow's hierarchy of needs is a hypothesis presented in his 1943 book A Theory of Motivation, which he later extended. He rose to prominence not just in the discipline of psychology but also in the industry of marketing or advertising. Maslow develops a hierarchy of human needs in his theory, arguing that when the most fundamental needs are met (at the bottom of the pyramid), humans develop greater needs and desires (at the top of the pyramid).
Now I'll go into how you connect each step with examples:
Basic physiological needs:
Are required to sustain homeostasis (related to survival)
