Some time ago I discovered Manfred Max-Neef’s Fundamental human needs taxonomy: Unlike Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, which focuses on a hierarchy of psychological needs, Max-Neef talks about needs that are complementary, all of which are necessary to achieve satisfaction. Indeed, the Maslow’s hierarchy seems to me kind of opinionated and arbitrary. If only the game was as simple as reaching the imaginary top, somewhere across the infinite ladder.
