Maslow’s hierarchy of needs theory is basically a pyramid style look at how people progress through the types of needs they have until they achieve a state where they perform based on how it affects others, as opposed to for themselves. This movement through needs starts from the most basic of needs, or the physiological needs, such as food, shelter, and clothing (Baack, 2012). The other needs that on will progress through include safety, or the need for protection, social needs such as acceptance and love from others, and esteem – consisting of being looked up to by others (Baack, 2012). Since the needs progress in order from lowest to highest, in regard to priority, and thus most people are probably dispersed through the lower levels of needs, the pyramid can be visualized as a big base and small apex. This theory of Maslow’s covers many bases of what motivates people – and how they move up through the different levels of needs – but failed to cover many facets of motivation as well as describe how people may progress in different ways
