Maslow’s theory of motivation is to rank needs in order of immediacy.
Maslow’s theory of motivation is known as Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs. Basically, it ranks needs according to importance for human beings. It is usually represented as a pyramid. Needs at the base of the pyramid are important physiological needs humans need to survive. These include oxygen, water, food, and health. As the needs move up the period, they get less physical and more metaphysical. We move from biological needs to safety, belonging, self-esteem, and self-actualization. Self-actualization is the concept of becoming our best self.
