Maslow´s Hierarchy of Needs


While never using a pyramid himself, the pyramid represents Maslow's hierarchy with the most important needs creating the base and least the peak. The bottom four layers are called deficiency needs which maslow believes are required before one can strive for the other levels of the pyramid., as a lack of fulfilling them could have consequences. Maslow also believed there are those motivated primarily by personal betterment too.

There are often exceptions to Maslow's pyramid, for instance someone might feel in immediate danger to something and realize it must be dealt with before dealing with something like a desire for food.

Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs is a theory of Abraham Maslow which he first proposed in a 1943 paper. The theory focuses on what pattern of human motivation people go through regularly. Maslow was known for mostly studying 'exemplary people' like presidents instead of odd subjects.

Due to Parallel processing, one can be influenced by many parts of the pyramid at the same time. Maslow had always stated that the motivators were general and relative. He had said that when one motivator is the primary motivator it is simply dominating a person's motivations and that other motivating influences can still have an effect. From this we can infer he understood this, and that he simply chose to only identify the basic motivators in his theory.
