The resulting hierarchy of needs is often depicted as a pyramid. There are many conditions in the environment which could effect the motivation of staff.

Description Maslow's hierarchy specifies the following levels: needs hierarchy. Esteem needs: Esteem needs include both self-esteem and the esteem of others. he also discovered a range of needs that extend beyond self-actualization. concerns about worthiness emerge. He thought that no theory of human personality could be complete without a thorough study of healthy functioning. oxygen. drawing many of its concepts from case studies of neurotic people. They refer to needs to contribute to human welfare and to find higher meanings in life. As these needs emerge. As Maslow studied self-actualizing individuals. Once the person has satisfied his or her basic needs. When these needs are unmet. and so on. The behaviorist view emphasized the role of learning and derived many of its principles from observations of animal behavior. He called these needs transcendence needs or B-values. The psychoanalytic view emphasized unconscious conflicts and drives. but he noted that complete satisfaction of a given need may not be possible or necessary. Physiological needs: These are the basic requirements for human physical survival. according to Maslow. while the behaviorists were too mechanistic and largely ignored subjective experience. Because of their focus on the positive. Self-esteem is the feeling that one is worthwhile. or when a student postpones looking for a romantic partner in order to earn high grades and get into a prestigious graduate program. The esteem of others involves the feeling that other people respect and appreciate the person. They stimulated the emergence and rapid growth of the human potential movement of the late 1960s and early 1970s. which include the need for beauty and order."

Gordon Allport. his or her needs for safety emerge. as well as aesthetic needs. These include needs for a sense of security and predictability in the world. as when an artist sacrifices comfort and security in order to pursue aesthetic goals. Maslow's perspective. came to be known as the "third force" in psychology. psychology was dominated by two views of human behavior. Maslow thought that inadequate fulfillment of these needs might explain neurotic behavior and other emotional problems in some people. Safety needs: Once the individual's basic physical needs are met. water. These included cognitive needs. He indicated that most people would show a range of need satisfaction levels at any given time.

Although transcendence needs are usually described as lying somewhere beyond the need for self-actualization. The person tries to maintain the conditions that allow him or her to feel safe and avoid danger. Maslow also noted situations in which lower needs might be ignored in favor of higher needs. he allowed for some departures from the strict order of his . is one in which the individual loses a sense of time and place and experiences a momentary feeling of unity with the universe. but doing well according to meaningful communal standards. the person focuses on doing what he or she is meant to do in lifeeveloping his or her talents and abilities to their fullest extent. the psychoanalytic and the behaviorist. Other human needs Maslow described other needs that did not fit into his hierarchy. a person might be 85% satisfied in the area of physiological needs. needs for love and belongingness emerge. It is a particularly intense form of growth experience. They include such essentials as food. these views are also described as humanistic theories of behavior. One important finding was that psychologically healthy people were more likely to report what Maslow called "peak experiences. these needs are not included in most formulations of Maslow's needs hierarchy. He stated that lower needs must be reasonably well satisfied in order for the person to focus on higher needs. Maslow emphasized that these needs involve both giving and receiving love. that these departures from a strict hierarchy did not invalidate his general theory. The historical context of Maslow's theories At the time Maslow developed his theory in the early 1960s. The focus becomes not just surviving. 60% satisfied in the area of safety needs. however. and others. and independent. so he set out to examine the conscious motivations and experiences of healthy individuals.

Self-actualization needs: These are the needs associated with realizing one's full potential. Love and belonging needs: When the individual's physiological and safety needs are met. together with similar approaches proposed by Carl Rogers. Maslow thought. such as curiosity and scientific interest. human beings will focus on satisfying them and will ignore higher needs.
