Outline the everyday needs of individuals (P1)
The Maslow triangle shows the basic needs on how to survive and what every individual needs. So far we have looked at everyday needs for different individuals. We have also discussed Maslow’s triangle and how it helps us with what we need. We have looked at each step of the ladder and what we can add in the certain categories. We looked at what each person deserves in the right in life. E.g. treated equally, freedom of speech, to be listened to, the right education, own culture and religion.
• These are the basic needs that should be met.
• Once each levels needs are met a person can go to the next level until they reach the top (which not a lot of people can meet).
• If any of these needs are not met then they can become priority.
• At the top/highest level us self- actualization were the individual is displaying and using their full potential.
• The lower level needs are food/water, shelter, warmth and safety whilst the higher needs are about self-esteem and self-worth, creativity and fulfilment.
• The basic needs that should be met are on the first ladder. Such as food, water, shelter, warmth, etc…
• Once these are met the person can progresses onto the next level, if the needs are not met they become priority.
• The second ladder is the next step up on the basic needs of an individual. On this ladder it gives you security needs and safety such as: Lock doors, people around you to protect you, etc…
• The third ladder is two steps up from the first one ones, once the other two steps are complete the third ladder is the next need. (social needs)
• Social needs are met through our relationships with others.
• We then achieve belonging and acceptance.
• Then this will lead to happiness but sometimes can go wrong e.g. being bullied or divorced.
