Abraham Maslow

An expert on your field that you admire.

Well there is no psychologist that me mad crazy and i have no heroes in psychology... u.u

but once a friend approached me very happy =B because he had heard of a theory of psychology that looked very good ... and the author of that theory was Abraham Maslow !

Abraham Maslow was an American psychologist who was born in New York in 1908 and died in California in 1970 ... his parents were Jewish immigrants coming from Russia, studied at the University of Wisconsin ... was known as one of the founders of humanistic psychology ...

 He postulate that people had basic tendencies toward mental health ... which would be reflected in the search for self-realization =)

Their main job is the that explained me my friend, the pyramid of needs and self- realization ... which mainly states that human beings have needs at different levels.

Maslow's Pyramid It contains human needs, psychological and physical ... climbing the steps of this pyramid will reach the self-realization ... the first step are based on basic needs or physiological needs (eating, drinking, breathing, sleeping, resting, sweat, urinate, etc. .)The next step is that of security and safety needs (security, order and stability). The third level is the need for love and belonging (psychological and emotional needs). The fourth level is the need for esteem (success, status) and the top of the pyramid is the need for self-realization and  when it  reaches this... is obtained a state of harmony and understanding.

 I think mainly for this theory is that I like this psychologist but could not say who is my hero. =(!!
