For my class called “Theories of Personality” I was required to take the Maslow Assessment Test. It’s a personality test to determine how close one is to self-actualization, meaning feeling fulfilled and at one’s ultimate potential. Aberham Maslow was a psychologist who believed that basically most human beings were born good and desired to become the best they could be. In order to reach self-actualization, several basic needs must be satisfied. Once these basic needs, such as food, shelter, and safety, then one could focus on higher needs. I find this concept interesting and I would like to share with you all my results.
Maslow Inventory Results
|Physiological Needs (24%) you appear to have everything you need to survive physically.
Safety Needs (24%) you appear to have a very secure environment.
Love Needs (10%) you appear to be content with the quality of your social connections.
Esteem Needs (30%) you appear to have a high level of personal competence.
Self-Actualization (58%) you appear to have an average level of individual development.
You can also take the test yourself by clicking on the above link. Satisfying a need doesn’t necessarily require 100% satisfaction.
Also, happy Halloween to you all! This used to be my favorite holiday when I was a kid. I loved dressing up in costumes and pretending to be someone else. Though during those days I didn’t really like life as much. Halloween was one way I could escape from my troubles. Now a days I much prefer Thanksgiving. Mostly for the food. It’s good to look at what you have and remember what you have to be thankful for.
