Levels of Needs

Human Needs are the Motivation behind our Actions:

We are driven to fulfill them.

 

They define us humans as a species.

 

They are shaped by our formative experiences.

 

Our three most foundational human needs are:

Appetitive

hunger, rest, physical needs

Attachment

touch, warmth, security

Affective

receiving and expressing emotions

The human needs that build on these foundations are:

Acknowledgement

Activation

simulation, novelty seeking

mirroring, recognition

Activation

belongingness, connection

The final human needs that we need to attend to are:

Actualizing

achievement, realizing potential

Attunement

1) to other humans

2) to the natural world

Awareness

life purpose, meaning

Our human needs follow a hierarchy.
