    Maslow’s heirarchy seems to make sense, I’ve seen the pyramid before but didn’t know the creator!

    I find Maslow’s human beings needs are arranged like a ladder. I have never thought of human needs being arranged this way, but I believe Maslow is right with the order he arranged the needs and the type of diagram he uses to represent his concept.

    Abraham Maslow elaborated on the existing topic of mental health and human potential. He also introduced a ladder of human needs with the base of the ladder being physical necessities like air and water and above that being security and on top of that being love/self fulfillment (you can’t have what’s at the top of the ladder without acquiring what’s beneath first).

    Maslow’s hierarchy theory is made of five tiers of human needs. It is basically made of qualities that we all desire, want and need in our lives

    I love Maslow’s idea of how human beings’ needs are arranged like a ladder. Without fulfilling the basic needs, a human is unlikely to be successful.

    I have heard of his theory before I think it is very informative, the reality that there are some many different types of necessity and it’s hard to get to the next level when one falls out of place
