Maslow was one of the creators of Humanist Psychology and demonstrates a high degree of the study of human beings in his works
How does Maslow fit into this course? Why did I choose Maslow? Due to my background knowledge of the Hierarchy of Needs
I am interested in the behaviour of people, such as why they act like they do, what results in self esteem issues
I aslo believe that Maslow was very successful because almost all of his theories have become the main resource for Psychologists, especailly the Hierarchy of Needs 1943 Hierarchy of needs 1943-Self Actualization:
Full use of potential, talents, capacity. These types of people are hard workers, creative and courageous.
