Maslow’s hierarchy of needs is a theory that suggests that people have different levels of needs. They cannot focus on higher needs until their lower needs are met. This hierarchy has applications in many areas of life, so you can find a ton of articles on the theory.

In Maslow’s theory, needs ascend in the following order

  • Physiological needs
  • Safety needs
  • Love and social belonging needs
  • Esteem needs
  • Cognitive needs
  • Aesthetic needs
  • Self-actualization (added later in expanded needs)
  • Transcendence (added later in expanded needs)

Until a person has met their lower needs they do not have the resources to focus on meeting higher needs.

Some sources you could use for an annotated bibliography include:

Andrew J. Hale, Daniel N. Ricotta, Jason Freed, C. Christopher Smith & Grace C. Huang (2019) Adapting Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs as a Framework for Resident Wellness, Teaching and Learning in Medicine, 31:1, 109-118, DOI: 10.1080/10401334.2018.1456928

This article uses the hierarchy of needs to discuss how to better treat residents in medical school programs. It focuses on burnout and how the hierarchy of needs is related to that concept. It suggests that a holistic approach to burnout is necessary because the causes of burnout are multi-faceted.

Lixin Cui, Yonggui Wang, Weiming Chen, Wen Wen, Myat Su Han, Predicting determinants of consumers' purchase motivation for electric vehicles: An application of Maslow's hierarchy of needs model, Energy Policy, Volume 151, 2021, 112167, ISSN 0301-4215, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.enpol.2021.112167.

This article discusses how the hierarchy of needs impacts adoption of electric vehicles. Current marketing focuses on the environmental impact but ignores some of the human-based motivations that could help promote people adopting electric technology. How would focusing on the hierarchy of needs impact people adopting electric technology and could marketers use the hierarchy to help encourage people to adopt this technology?
