basic human needs

I need. You need. We all need.

Bobb Biehl’s sagely wisdom about our human needs was succinct and insightful.

There are 8 reasons why people do what they do. These are insatiable needs. They are the need to be:

  • Loved
  • Accepted
  • Appreciated
  • Secure
  • Recognized
  • Respected
  • Significant
  • Admired

We all need all of these, but different individuals rate them very differently on a 1-10 scale.

I had re-ordered the list above to reflect my own priority of needs. This list rings so true for me, and affirmed to me that I’m not so unusual for feeling needy, even when I’ve got a very good life by almost any standard. After all, these are insatiable needs. And, most (if not all) of these are met by relationships and friendships.
