I was made to attend a passion & motivational class at Spring Singapore. Part of the company's efforts to identify talents to drive and motivate other talents within the company. A topic within the class was to learn the Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs.

Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs is a theory in psychology that Abraham Maslow proposed in his 1943 paper A Theory of Human Motivation,which he subsequently extended to include his observations of humans' innate curiosity.

I've seen the chart ages ago but only managed to do the personality test at the class.

Maslow's hierarchy of needs is often depicted as a pyramid consisting of five levels: the four lower levels are grouped together as being associated with physiological needs, while the top level is termed growth needs associated with psychological needs. Deficiency needs must be met first. Once these are met, seeking to satisfy growth needs drives personal growth.

The higher needs in this hierarchy only come into focus when the lower needs in the pyramid are satisfied. Once an individual has moved upwards to the next level, needs in the lower level will no longer be prioritized.

It's no wonder I fell into the category of Basic Physiological. The temptation of creature comforts and the basic necessities to build a decent nesting. Falling in with the SAME highest score was also Esteem. Another non-surprising self discovery...

What I didn't know coming very close in 2nd was actually Love/Belonging/Social needs. But then again, one of my area of focus and purpose that I am developing is 'building relationships'. Perhaps its rubbing off on me more then I realise.

Coming in 3rd is Safety and lastly Self-actualization. I had thought I have more vision and drive in the Self-actualization field. Sometimes I surprise myself.
