Maslow translated by Eddie Vigor In Ukrainian: He was the first of seven children born to his parents, who themselves were uneducated Jewish immigrants from Russia. His parents, hoping for the best for their children in the new world, pushed him hard for academic success.
Youth[ edit ] Born in and raised in Brooklyn, New YorkMaslow was the oldest of seven children and was classed as "mentally unstable" by a psychologist. It was a tough time for Maslow, as he experienced anti-Semitism from his teachers and from other children around the neighborhood. He had various encounters with anti-Semitic gangs who would chase and throw rocks at him.
He also grew up with few friends other than his cousin Will, and as a result " He went to Boys High School, one of the top high schools in Brooklyn.
As a young boy, Maslow believed physical strength to be the single most defining characteristic of a true male; hence, he exercised often and took up weight lifting in hopes of being transformed into a more muscular, tough-looking guy, however, he was unable Abrham maslow achieve this due to his humble-looking and chaste figure as well as his studiousness.
In he began taking legal studies classes at night in addition to his undergraduate course load. He hated it and almost immediately dropped out. In he transferred to Cornell, but he left after just one semester due to poor grades and high costs.
Inhe married his first cousin Bertha, who was still in high school at the time. The pair had met in Brooklyn years earlier. He was so ashamed of the thesis that he removed it from the psychology library and tore out Abrham maslow catalog listing.
Academic career[ edit ] He continued his research at Columbia University on similar themes. From toMaslow was on the faculty of Brooklyn College.
His family life and his experiences influenced his psychological ideas. After World War IIMaslow began to question the way psychologists had come to their conclusions, and although he did not completely disagree, he had his own ideas on how to understand the human mind.
He was thus ineligible for the military. However, the horrors of war inspired a vision of peace in him leading to his groundbreaking psychological studies of self-actualizing. The studies began under the supervision of two mentors, anthropologist Ruth Benedict and Gestalt psychologist Max Wertheimerwhom he admired both professionally and personally.
They accomplished a lot in both realms.
Being such "wonderful human beings" as well, they inspired Maslow to take notes about them and their behavior. This would be the basis of his lifelong research and thinking about mental health and human potential.
Maslow was a professor at Brandeis University from to He became a resident fellow of the Laughlin Institute in California.
InMaslow had a serious heart attack and knew his time was limited. He considered himself to be a psychological pioneer.
He gave future psychologists a push by bringing to light different paths to ponder. Maslow believed that leadership should be non-intervening. Consistent with this approach, he rejected a nomination in to be the president of the Association for Humanistic Psychology because he felt that the organization should develop an intellectual movement without a leader.
How can we humanistically understand the problem of evil? The main point of that new movement, that reached its peak in s, was to emphasize the positive potential of human beings. It is as if Freud supplied us the sick half of psychology and we must now fill it out with the healthy half.
He focused on self-actualizing people. Self-actualizing people indicate a coherent personality syndrome and represent optimal psychological health and functioning. All were "reality centered," able to differentiate what was fraudulent from what was genuine. These individuals also were comfortable being alone and had healthy personal relationships.
They had only a few close friends and family rather than a large number of shallow relationships. Maslow noticed that self-actualized individuals had a better insight of reality, deeply accepted themselves, others and the world, and also had faced many problems and were known to be impulsive people.
These self-actualized individuals were very independent and private when it came to their environment and culture, especially their very own individual development on "potentialities and inner resources".
Together, these define the human experience. To the extent a person finds cooperative social fulfillment, he establishes meaningful relationships with other people and the larger world. In other words, he establishes meaningful connections to an external reality—an essential component of self-actualization.
In contrast, to the extent that vital needs find selfish and competitive fulfillment, a person acquires hostile emotions and limited external relationships—his awareness remains internal and limited.Maslow's hierarchy of needs is a motivational theory in psychology comprising a five-tier model of human needs, often depicted as hierarchical levels within a pyramid.
