  1. 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.

  2. 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.
