Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs is a motivational theory developed by the renowned psychologist and humanist Abraham Harold Maslow (April 1, 1908 – June 8, 1970). Being disappointed by the behaviourist theories of the day that primarily focused on the study of problematic behaviour, Maslow took a different turn and did in-depth studies on the motivational part of the human conduct. He explored areas responsible for driving people’s behaviour and happiness. For Maslow, any behaviour is a complex act that aim at the achievement of a certain goal. Human beings are goal oriented and as such they tend to channel their behaviour according to the motivational need underlying it. Check out this post to learn more about Maslow Hierarchy of Needs.
