Abraham Maslow is an American Psychologist. According to his law, Maslow’s hierarchy of needs is predetermined in order of importance. It is often depicted as a pyramid consisting of five levels: the first level is being associated with Physiological needs, while the top levels are termed growth needs associated with psychological needs. Deficiency needs must be met first. Once these are met, seeking to satisfy growth needs drives personal growth. The higher needs in this hierarchy only come into focus when the lower needs in the pyramid are met. Once an individual has moved upwards to the next level, needs in the lower level will no longer be prioritized. If a lower set of needs is no longer being met, the individual will temporarily re-prioritize those needs by focusing attention on the unfulfilled needs, but will not permanently regress to the lower level.
We, as teenagers are mostly trapped on the 2nd or 3rd level. We are desperate for supports and affirmation.
We hope for somebody to listen to us, that’s why we go blogging. WHEE!
Though I still think that 2nd and 3rd are kind of related anyway..
