MASLOW’S HUMAN NEEDS 🙌🏼

Humans need food, sleep, safety, love, purpose. Psychologist Abraham Maslow ordered our needs into a hierarchy. This episode, TED speakers explore that spectrum of need, from primal to profound. http://n.pr/1Hf4KaS
  1. Physiological: http://n.pr/1Im9ees
    For this episode, we focused on the basic human need of sleep. We know we need to do it to stay alive, but much about it remains a mystery.
  2. Computer security expert Bruce Schneier says there's a big difference between feeling secure and actually being secure. He explains why we worry about unlikely dangers while ignoring more probable risks.
  3. Love + Belonging: http://n.pr/1Jb9tcz
    Journalist Sebastian Junger was embedded with soldiers in the Korengal Valley during the war in Afghanistan. One of the reasons some veterans miss war, he says, is because it fulfills a deep human need to belong to a trusted group.
  4. Caroline Casey was 17 years old when she first learned she was visually impaired. Embracing her disability helped nourish her need for self-esteem.
  5. Self-actualization: http://n.pr/1DqZE90
    Psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi says we can achieve one of the most elusive needs — self-actualization — by finding a state of "flow" in our work or our hobbies.
