He placed these needs into the shape of a pyramid, in which the bottom layer consists of our lower motivational needs such as physiological needs, leading up to the top layer consisting of the higher motivational needs such as self-actualization. He believed that when a person satisfies their basic needs, they can then move up the pyramid to fulfill their higher needs. Abraham Maslow’s theory on human motivation is an accurate portrayal of how human needs affect their behavior. Many people have agreed with Maslow on his theory. In order for people to continue on with their daily tasks or life goals, they need to satisfy their most basic needs.
Sociological theories are complex theoretical and methodological frameworks used to analyze and explain objects of social study. Each theory has its strengths and weaknesses. The focus of this essay will be on functionalism and its contributions to the understanding of society today. Functionalism goes back a long way in history with its views and theories on society, with the work of Spencer and Comte. Its theories were then taken on within the work of Emile Durkheim and a lot more recently by Talcott Parsons in America 1940-50's.

I will also discuss effective techniques used in stressful situations at work both present and future. The first theory of motivation I want to discuss is Abraham Maslow’s “Need Hierarchy”. In his hierarchy of needs he suggests that people are motivated to fulfill basic needs before moving on to other needs. His hierarchy of needs is usually displayed as a pyramid. The lowest levels of the pyramid are made up of the most basic needs, while the more complex needs are located at the top of the pyramid.
Achievement and recognition of achievement have been proved time and time again by Psychologists and social scientists, who say that these are the most powerful motivators. The Basis for Maslow’s motivation theory is that unsatisfied needs is what human beings are motivated by, also that a person’s higher needs cannot be satisfied until a person’s certain lower needs are met. Physiological, esteem, love, safety, and survival are all general types of needs that must be satisfied before a person can act altruistically. Maslow called these needs “deficiency needs”. As long as our cravings are fed by our motivation, we move towards growth, and self-actualization.
