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
- •Physiological: http://n.pr/1Im9eesFor 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.
- •Safety: http://n.pr/1G0Jbt4Computer 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.
- •Love + Belonging: http://n.pr/1Jb9tczJournalist 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.
- •Esteem: http://n.pr/1HzUVopCaroline Casey was 17 years old when she first learned she was visually impaired. Embracing her disability helped nourish her need for self-esteem.
- •Self-actualization: http://n.pr/1DqZE90Psychologist 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.
