Human needs

I did a management thing a couple of years ago that talked about Maslow's hierarchy of needs. The hierarchy is usually presented as a pyramid with each basic human need layered one on top of the other. The needs start at the base with physiological needs like air and water, the next layer up contains safety and security. Then we have social needs, then esteem and finally self-actualisation (i.e. creativity). This theory was developed in the 1940s so I was interested to see a reworked hierarchy that brings it bang up to date.

Take a look and see if you agree, my children certainly do...
