We are currently reporting live and direct from the local Best Buy testing out some new equipment and this post is being composed using an Apple Macbook Pro with Retina display with the 512GB hard drive, and while searching for an important post to republish the one that we are now viewing regarding the concept of self actualization appeared showing spontaneity as one of the status attributes at the top of the needs pyramid, meaning that we are actually practicing what we preach in the name of stepping our game up!
Maslow's Hierarchy Of Needs Theory Pyramid
Hierarchy Of Needs
Maslow’s hierarchy of needs is often portrayed in the shape of a pyramid, with the largest and most fundamental levels of needs at the bottom, and the need for self-actualization at the top.
The most fundamental and basic four layers of the pyramid contain what Maslow called “deficiency needs” or “d-needs”: esteem, friendship and love, security, and physical needs. With the exception of the most fundamental (physiological) needs, if these “deficiency needs” are not met, the body gives no physical indication but the individual feels anxious and tense. Maslow’s theory suggests that the most basic level of needs must be met before the individual will strongly desire (or focus motivation upon) the secondary or higher level needs. Maslow also coined the term Metamotivation to describe the motivation of people who go beyond the scope of the basic needs and strive for constant betterment.Metamotivated people are driven by B-needs (Being Needs), instead of deficiency needs (D-Needs).
