"[What sort of things are the most important to learn? It is important, if we are to be happy, that we address all of our needs. To that end, here is a brief but very useful breakdown of our hierarchical human needs according to the very highly regarded psychology researcher and theorist, Abraham Maslow:] Maslow's Holistic Dynamic Needs Hierarchy - [in order of the priority of those needs:] - P = Physiological, - S = Safety, - L = Belongingness and Love, - E = Esteem, - SA = Self-Actualization. [It makes sense that the better our education, public and private, addresses the knowledge, skills and attitudes that allow us to meet these needs, for ourselves, in our culture, the more capable, fulfilled and happy we will be and the more able to contribute to the same of others, especially our families and friends.]" - Abraham Maslow

[Quote No.39276] Need Area: Mind > Plan
"[In planning our lives, it is important, if we are to be happy, that we address all of our needs. To that end, here is a very useful breakdown of our hierarchical human needs according to the very highly regarded psychology researcher and theorist, Abraham Maslow:] Maslow's Holistic Dynamic Needs Hierarchy - [in order of the priority of those needs:] - P = Physiological, - S = Safety, - L = Belongingness and Love, - E = Esteem, - SA = Self-Actualization. [What do those mean, in more detail:] --- Physiological Needs - Food, water, oxygen, etc. Anything the physical organism needs to survive. Very fundamental life or death needs. Perhaps because Maslow was well fed, he didn't spend a lot of time on these. "...it seems impossible as well as useless to make any list of fundamental physiological needs, for they can come to almost any number one might wish, depending on the degree of specificity of description.". --- Safety Needs - "If the physiological needs are relatively well gratified, there then emerges a new set of needs, which we may categorize roughly as the safety needs, (security; stability; dependency; protection; freedom from fear, anxiety, and chaos; need for structure, order, law, and limits; strength in the protector; and so on)." --- Belongingness and Love Needs - "If both the physiological and the safety needs are fairly well gratified, there will emerge the love and affection and belongingness needs, and the whole cycle already described will repeat itself with this new center. The love needs involve giving and receiving affection. When they are unsatisfied, a person will feel keenly the absence of friends, mate, or children. Such a person will hunger for relations with people in general - for a place in the group or family - and will strive with great intensity to achieve this goal. Attaining such a place will matter more than anything else in the world and he or she may even forget that once, when hunger was foremost, love seemed unreal, unnecessary, and unimportant. Now the pangs of loneliness, ostracism, rejection, friendlessness, and rootlessness are preeminent." --- Esteem Needs - "All people in our society (with a few pathological exceptions) have a need or desire for a stable, firmly based, usually high evaluation of themselves, for self-respect or self-esteem, and for the esteem of others. These needs may therefore be classified into two subsidiary sets. These are, first, the desire for strength, achievement, adequacy, mastery and competence, confidence in the face of the world, and independence and freedom. Second, we have what we may call the desire for reputation or prestige (defining it as respect or esteem from other people), status, fame and glory, dominance, recognition, attention, importance, dignity, or appreciation." "Satisfaction of the self-esteem need leads to feelings of self-confidence, worth, strength, capability, and adequacy, of being useful and necessary in the world. But thwarting of these needs produces feelings of inferiority, of weakness, and of helplessness." "The most stable and therefore most healthy self-esteem is based on deserved respect from others rather than on external fame or celebrity and unwarranted adulation." --- Self-actualization Need - "Even if all these needs are satisfied, we may still often (if not always) expect that a new discontent and restlessness will soon develop, unless the individual is doing what he or she, individually, is fitted for. Musicians must make music, artists must paint, poets must write if they are to be ultimately at peace with themselves. What humans can be, they must be. They must be true to their own nature. This need we may call self-actualization." (...Maslow later redefined self-actualization as a function of frequency of peak experiences...In Toward a Psychology of Being (1968), Maslow redefined self-actualization as episodic... "In other words, any person in any of the peak experiences takes on temporarily many of the characteristics which I found in self-actualizing individuals. That is, for the time they become self-actualizers. We may think of it as a passing characterological change if we wish, and not just as an emotional-cognitive-expressive state. Not only are these his happiest and most thrilling moments, but they are also moments of greatest maturity, individuation, fulfilment - in a word, his healthiest moments. This makes it possible for us to redefine self-actualization in such a way as to purge it of its static and typological shortcomings, and to make it less a kind of all-or-none pantheon into which some rare people enter at the age of 60. We may define it as an episode, or a spurt in which the powers of the person come together in a particularly efficient and intensely enjoyable way, and in which he is more integrated and less split, more open for experience, more idiosyncratic, more perfectly expressive or spontaneous, or fully functioning, more creative, more humorous, more ego-transcending, more independent of his lower needs, etc. He becomes in these episodes more truly himself, more perfectly actualizing his potentialities, closer to the core of his Being, more fully human. Such states or episodes can, in theory, come at any time in life to any person. What seems to distinguish those individuals I have called self-actualizing people, is that in them these episodes seem to come far more frequently, and intensely and perfectly than in average people. This makes self-actualization a matter of degree and of frequency rather than an all-or-none affair, and thereby makes it more amenable to available research procedures. We need no longer be limited to searching for those rare subjects who may be said to be fulfilling themselves most of the time. In theory at least we may also search any life history for episodes of self-actualization, especially those of artists, intellectuals and other especially creative people, of profoundly religious people, and of people experiencing great insights in psychotherapy, or in other important growth experiences." (Note that when Maslow refers to "especially creative people", that he has a broad definition of creativity where creativity is a quality that can be applied to any task in life. Maslow maintained that a first rate soup is better than a second rate painting. While he seems here to be favouring artists, scholars and saints, I don't think it's his intention to exclude homemakers, carpenters, athletes, etc.)" - Abraham Maslow

"Self actualising people have a deep feeling of identification, sympathy, and affection for human beings in general. They feel kinship and connection, as if all people were members of a single family. [They often are happy and have great success in many areas of their lives. At the other end of the spectrum of humanity are sociopaths, who do not identify with or have much affection for human beings or even themselves. They are usually unhappy and may eventually wind up in prison for their extremely anti-social behaviors.]" - Abraham Maslow

[Quote No.39277] Need Area: Friends > General
"[In dealing with others, it is important, if we are all to be happy, win-win, that we address all of our needs. To that end, here is a very useful breakdown of our hierarchical human needs according to the very highly regarded psychology researcher and theorist, Abraham Maslow. Keeping these in mind when dealing with others is very helpful:] Maslow's Holistic Dynamic Needs Hierarchy - [in order of the priority of those needs:] - P = Physiological, - S = Safety, - L = Belongingness and Love, - E = Esteem, - SA = Self-Actualization. [What do those mean, in more detail:] --- Physiological Needs - Food, water, oxygen, etc. Anything the physical organism needs to survive. Very fundamental life or death needs. Perhaps because Maslow was well fed, he didn't spend a lot of time on these. "...it seems impossible as well as useless to make any list of fundamental physiological needs, for they can come to almost any number one might wish, depending on the degree of specificity of description.". --- Safety Needs - "If the physiological needs are relatively well gratified, there then emerges a new set of needs, which we may categorize roughly as the safety needs, (security; stability; dependency; protection; freedom from fear, anxiety, and chaos; need for structure, order, law, and limits; strength in the protector; and so on)." --- Belongingness and Love Needs - "If both the physiological and the safety needs are fairly well gratified, there will emerge the love and affection and belongingness needs, and the whole cycle already described will repeat itself with this new center. The love needs involve giving and receiving affection. When they are unsatisfied, a person will feel keenly the absence of friends, mate, or children. Such a person will hunger for relations with people in general - for a place in the group or family - and will strive with great intensity to achieve this goal. Attaining such a place will matter more than anything else in the world and he or she may even forget that once, when hunger was foremost, love seemed unreal, unnecessary, and unimportant. Now the pangs of loneliness, ostracism, rejection, friendlessness, and rootlessness are preeminent." --- Esteem Needs - "All people in our society (with a few pathological exceptions) have a need or desire for a stable, firmly based, usually high evaluation of themselves, for self-respect or self-esteem, and for the esteem of others. These needs may therefore be classified into two subsidiary sets. These are, first, the desire for strength, achievement, adequacy, mastery and competence, confidence in the face of the world, and independence and freedom. Second, we have what we may call the desire for reputation or prestige (defining it as respect or esteem from other people), status, fame and glory, dominance, recognition, attention, importance, dignity, or appreciation." "Satisfaction of the self-esteem need leads to feelings of self-confidence, worth, strength, capability, and adequacy, of being useful and necessary in the world. But thwarting of these needs produces feelings of inferiority, of weakness, and of helplessness." "The most stable and therefore most healthy self-esteem is based on deserved respect from others rather than on external fame or celebrity and unwarranted adulation." --- Self-actualization Need - "Even if all these needs are satisfied, we may still often (if not always) expect that a new discontent and restlessness will soon develop, unless the individual is doing what he or she, individually, is fitted for. Musicians must make music, artists must paint, poets must write if they are to be ultimately at peace with themselves. What humans can be, they must be. They must be true to their own nature. This need we may call self-actualization." (...Maslow later redefined self-actualization as a function of frequency of peak experiences...In Toward a Psychology of Being (1968), Maslow redefined self-actualization as episodic... "In other words, any person in any of the peak experiences takes on temporarily many of the characteristics which I found in self-actualizing individuals. That is, for the time they become self-actualizers. We may think of it as a passing characterological change if we wish, and not just as an emotional-cognitive-expressive state. Not only are these his happiest and most thrilling moments, but they are also moments of greatest maturity, individuation, fulfilment - in a word, his healthiest moments. This makes it possible for us to redefine self-actualization in such a way as to purge it of its static and typological shortcomings, and to make it less a kind of all-or-none pantheon into which some rare people enter at the age of 60. We may define it as an episode, or a spurt in which the powers of the person come together in a particularly efficient and intensely enjoyable way, and in which he is more integrated and less split, more open for experience, more idiosyncratic, more perfectly expressive or spontaneous, or fully functioning, more creative, more humorous, more ego-transcending, more independent of his lower needs, etc. He becomes in these episodes more truly himself, more perfectly actualizing his potentialities, closer to the core of his Being, more fully human. Such states or episodes can, in theory, come at any time in life to any person. What seems to distinguish those individuals I have called self-actualizing people, is that in them these episodes seem to come far more frequently, and intensely and perfectly than in average people. This makes self-actualization a matter of degree and of frequency rather than an all-or-none affair, and thereby makes it more amenable to available research procedures. We need no longer be limited to searching for those rare subjects who may be said to be fulfilling themselves most of the time. In theory at least we may also search any life history for episodes of self-actualization, especially those of artists, intellectuals and other especially creative people, of profoundly religious people, and of people experiencing great insights in psychotherapy, or in other important growth experiences." (Note that when Maslow refers to "especially creative people", that he has a broad definition of creativity where creativity is a quality that can be applied to any task in life. Maslow maintained that a first rate soup is better than a second rate painting. While he seems here to be favouring artists, scholars and saints, I don't think it's his intention to exclude homemakers, carpenters, athletes, etc.)" - Abraham Maslow

"[Morality and ethics; law and order:] When people appear to be something other than good and decent [i.e. criminal, immoral, selfish, unkind, without empathy or compassion], it is only because they are reacting to stress, pain, or the deprivation of basic human needs such as security, love, and self-esteem [with 'inappropriate' and 'unwise' goals and methods]." - Abraham Maslow
A psychologist and the founder of the school of thought known as humanistic psychology. Perhaps best-remembered for his famous needs hierarchy. As quoted from his book, 'Toward a Psychology of Being', published 1968.

"There are no perfect human beings! Persons can be found who are good, very good indeed, in fact, great. There do in fact exist creators, seers, sages, saints, shakers, and movers...even if they are uncommon and do not come by the dozen. And yet these very same people can at times be boring, irritating, petulant, selfish, angry, or depressed. To avoid disillusionment with human nature, we must first give up our illusions about it!" - Abraham Maslow

"[The human need for life-skills, existential empowerment, individual freedom and personal responsibility:] The person in peak-experiences feels himself, more than other times, to be the responsible, active, creating center of his activities and of his perceptions. He feels more like a prime-mover, more self-determined (rather than caused, determined, helpless, dependent, passive, weak, bossed). He feels himself to be his own boss, fully responsible, fully volitional, with more 'free-will' than at other times, master of his fate, an agent." - Abraham Maslow
