Needs not Wants

Abraham Maslow, a founding member of Humanistic Psychology, observed that:

When man’s basic survival needs such as food, water and oxygen are satisfied they are replaced by safety needs reflecting his desire for protection against danger or deprivation.

These in turn, when satisfied, are replaced by the need for love or belonging, which are functions of man’s gregariousness and his desire to belong to a group, to give and receive friendship and to interact happily with people.
