Term Definition
needs hierarchy

a theory of motivation developed by Abraham Maslow (1908-1970) which postulates that humans have a range of needs which can be placed in rank order from basic survival to complete fulfilment. Lower needs cease to motivate once satisfied but higher needs cannot motivate until lower ones are met.
