Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs
Deprived of lower level needs but strive for Self-actualization
Theory was not completely generalizable
to every culture, every person, or every circumstance: “no claim is made that it is
ultimate or universal for all cultures”
-(Maslow, 1943b, p. 15)
People not aware of their own needs
The Fundamental human needs are non-hierarchical & are ontologically universal & invariant in nature.
- Manfred Max Neef (I991)
the process that initiates, guides and maintains goal-oriented behaviors
what causes us to act
provides purpose, direction, and drive behavior
People who experienced
extreme frustration in the higher needs may display a “frustration-regression” reaction
that would cause the lower needs to reemerge as exponent motivator of behavior.
- Clayton Alderfer ( 1966, 1969)
"An unobservable inner force that stimulates and compels a behavioural response, provides specific direction to that response, and drives response until the inner force is satisfied".
Quester, P and Neal, C and Pettigrew, S and Grimmer, MR and Davis, T and Hawkins, D (2007)

As long as we are motivated to satisfy all needs we are moving towards growth & towards self-actualization
Increases efficiency, productivity & profitability in an organisation
A satisfied need does not act as a motivator , as one need is satisfied, another replaces it
