Recognized psychological needs

  • The need for closure. It motivates us to arrive at a stable conclusion. To satisfy the need for closure, we can provide clear expectations and well-defined, measurable goals, regular feedback, and timelines.
  • The need for cognition is our desire to understand experiences and things in our environment. Providing reasons for why tasks need to be performed can help satisfy the need for understanding.
  • The need for meaning motivates us to understand how we relate to our environment, especially after traumatic events.
  • The need for power motivates us to want to be noticed and to desire to influence other people, to be in command, and to have high status.
  • The need for self-esteem refers to how a person feels about the self.
  • The need for achievements is guided by the motive to achieve success and to avoid failure. The need for achievement can be satisfied by accomplishing challenging tasks.
