These needs have to do with people's yearning for a predictable orderlyworld in which perceived unfairness and inconsistency are under control, the familiar frequentand the unfamiliar rare.

umans need to feel a sense of belonging and acceptance, whether it comes from a large socialgroup, such as clubs, office culture, religious groups, professional organizations, sports teams,gangs, or small social connections (family members, intimate partners, mentors, closecolleagues, confidants). They need to love and be loved (sexually and non-sexually) by others. Inthe absence of these elements, many people become susceptible to loneliness,social anxiety, andclinical depression. This need for belonging can often overcome the physiological and securityneeds, depending on the strength of the peer pressure; an anorexic, for example, may ignore theneed to eat and the security of health for a feeling of control and belonging.
