Excellent. Also, here is a good guide to whether someone is failing at life – if they believe Maslow’s hierarchy of needs is anything but a bag of made-up, unscientific shit. This means that my old Communication Studies teacher is fairing pretty badly, as is, wonderfully, Maslow himself.

This is so fun. I think I also make these kinds of things into scorecards. Do we all do that?

I too, once believed that Maslow’s Hierarchy B.S., but after reading his original paper (it’s not that long), I realized that it is a lot more complex than it has been presented in Psychological texts and in pop-culture. Certainly not scientific, but he presents very good evidence for all of his points.

Interesting to compare Maslow’s heirarchy to the four level heirarchy of Tony Scheartz in his new book “The Way We’re Working Isn’t Working,

Love the Maslow. Will put it up when I can figure out how to best persist it over history.

Best of all is the notion of Morality at the top. He was right, but as his “Theory Z” shows, only some of the species gets it. The others are counting gold nuggets.

Who is Tony Hawk? JK!

Oh, and it has been repeatedly proven that Maslow’s “hierarchy” is rather upside down from the truth. Another example how if you tell (teach) a lie long enough it comes to be seen as the truth (for sooooo many college/university grads who have not been taught critical thinking skills).

OMG, truth actually matters after all, and right and wrong really trump relativism? Hmmmm.
