A person too? The same needs and wants?

Does the idea of social photography stand in a modern world that has no concept of altruism? The current financial crisis is stopping people spending money on high fashion, but how about the people who could never afford it?

 

See Maslow's Hierarchy of needs, it explains that once the basic requirements of life are met, ie food, water and so on then the next levels are ever improving requirements.

maslow's hierarchy of needs

Each of us is motivated by needs. Our most basic needs are inborn, having evolved over tens of thousands of years. Abraham Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs helps to explain how these needs motivate us all.

 

Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs states that we must satisfy each need in turn, starting with the first, which deals with the most obvious needs for survival itself.

 

Only when the lower order needs of physical and emotional well-being are satisfied are we concerned with the higher order needs of influence and personal development.

 

Conversely, if the things that satisfy our lower order needs are swept away, we are no longer concerned about the maintenance of our higher order needs.

 

Maslow's original Hierarchy of Needs model was developed between 1943-1954, and first widely published in Motivation and Personality in 1954. At this time the Hierarchy of Needs model comprised five needs. This original version remains for most people the definitive Hierarchy of Needs.

1. Biological and Physiological needs - air, food, drink, shelter, warmth, sex, sleep, etc.

 

2. Safety needs - protection from elements, security, order, law, limits, stability, etc.

 

3. Belongingness and Love needs - work group, family, affection, relationships, etc.

 

4. Esteem needs - self-esteem, achievement, mastery, independence, status, dominance, prestige, managerial responsibility, etc.

 

5. Self-Actualization needs - realising personal potential, self-fulfillment, seeking personal growth and peak experiences.
