Marlow’s Hierarchy of Needs Maslow’s Hierarchy of needs is a charted set of human requirements that are important for an individual to achieve complete development. Hierarchy is diagramed as a pyramid starting at the bottoms with basic needs and coming up to secondary needs. There are five levels of Hierarchy Pyramid, they as follow Physiologically, Safety, Love, Esteem and Self-actualization. When these needs are not fulfilled the individual may be left with feelings of tension or anxiety. As a result of this deficiency people are motivated to take actions with relieve these negative feelings. These five needs will be further discussed and explained. Physiological needs involve efforts to meet the body’s needs. For example, if an individual is hungry it’s difficult to focus on anything else besides food. Without proper fuel such as sleep and food, the body is unable to function properly. Food and sleep have an important role in our life, without a proper balance human suffer psychologically. As humans we are unique in certain ways in life. Some people are more efficient at night rather than normal hours of the day. For me if I am going to lose either sleep or food, I would prefer to lose sleep. I love food way too much to miss out on an opportunity to eat some delicious food. Yet for my partner, he could go a whole day without eating and sleep all day if he could. We are opposites but our love for either side helps us work through the day. Secondly are our safety needs, safety is our protection and security. As you get older your safety demands changes. When you’re a child your parents provide your protection and safety. As you mature you start to gain a since of what you desire as an adult. At different ages adults start to acquire bills, responsibilities, and worldly possessions. A General description of what a human need to balance protection and security is a stable job, roof over their head, and a safe environment. Financial security is what having a stable job can provide for an adult. A person’s career does not determine its happiness, but it protects you from anxiety of survival needs. The biggest survival need is protection from the
outside world, it comes in a form of house, apartment, condo, etc. Not everyone is lucky enough to have family or friends to share a space with. This is a huge financial issue because rent and ownership are only increasing throughout the years. Thirdly Love and Belonging need it involves feeling loved and accepted. This includes romantic relationships and family members. Receiving affection from a loved one and having the trust that the individual around you will accept you the way you are. If we are not being loved, we mostly feel isolated rejected by families and friends. To avoid the feeling of negativity there is a need for love in our lives. Esteem needs based on desire for appreciation and respect. Its classified as self-esteem. Self -Esteem refers as to the needs for respect, self-confidence. Self-confidence within yourself, for example desire to achieve a goal and participating in activities to accomplish the goal. If youâ€™re not able to accomplish your goal you might lose your self-esteem and have low self-esteem. It is important to remember that until we feel good about our self, it is difficult truly appreciate the way others think about us. Self Actualization refers to feeling that we ae living up to our potential. How it relates to me is by helping others who are in need. Its gives satisfaction to me that at least I was able to make a family smile and happy y helping them when in need. It also makes feel I have earned respect by giving respect to others. In conclusion these five elements, Physiological, Safety, Love, Esteem and Self-Actualization make our lives focus on our needs in life. If we do not have all five elements negative thoughts, anxiety, tension will not leave our life. Itâ€™s very important to focus on our needs of life to make sure we have better understanding of our surroundings.
