Glasser's Five Needs

 

Explanations > Needs > Glasser's Five Needs

 

William Glasser, in his 'Control Theory' (later renamed to 'Choice Theory') detailed five needs that are quite close to Maslow's Hierarchy, but with some interesting twists.

1. Survival

This is similar to Maslow's Physiological and Safety level. They are basic needs which are of little interest unless they are threatened.

2. Love and belonging

This is the same as Maslow's Belonging need and recognises how important it is for us as a tribal species to be accepted by our peers.

3. Power or recognition

This maps to some extent to Maslow's Esteem need, although the Power element focuses on our ability to achieve our goals (which is perhaps a lower-level control need).

4. Freedom

This is the ability to do what we want, to have free choice. It is connected with procedural justice where we seek fair play.

5. Fun

An interesting ultimate goal. When all else is satisfied, we just (as Cyndi Lauper sang) 'want to have fun'.
