What are the five basic needs of a human?

These five basic human needs drive behavior, and they consistently apply to school settings. This is our basic physiological need: to survive as indi- viduals and reproduce so that we can survive as a species. Survival includes our physical needs for food, water, air, safety, shelter, warmth, health, and sex.

What are the three basic emotional needs?

When an experience or action meets at least three of our human emotional needs, we find ourselves feeling compelled to follow through with that action.
  • Recognition (Significance):
  • Self-Esteem (Contribution):
  • Love (Connection):
  • Creative Expression (Growth):
  • Security (Certainty or Comfort):
  • New Experiences (Variety):

What are the six basic human needs?

We all have the same six needs, but how we value those needs and in what order, determines the direction of our life.
  • Need 1: Certainty/Comfort. The first human need is the need for Certainty.
  • Need 2: Uncertainty/Variety.
  • Need 3: Significance.
  • Need 4: Love & Connection.
  • Need 5: Growth.
  • Need 6: Contribution.
