Would someone please if i getting the understanding please explain

  • Psychology -

    you have them right, according to Maslow. A number of folks think he got it wrong, but you can argue that in graduate school, as I did at USC.

  • Psychology -

    psychological are mental and phsiological are physical

    maslow just said we strive for greater satisfaction. Once primary needs are met we strive to full our inner desires ?

    so for example. If your poor then your basic needs are not met so you cant pursue your inner desires like finding rewarding work.
