Esteem needs- a person’s needs for internal esteem factors, such as self-respect, autonomy and achievement, and external esteem factors, such as status, recognition, and attention.
“Esteem needs are the fourth level in Maslow’s hierarchy - which Maslow classified into two categories: (i) esteem for oneself (dignity, achievement, mastery, independence) and (ii) the desire for reputation or respect from others (e.g., status, prestige). “
Esteem needs are the need for self-confidence, self-esteem, and respect. These needs serve as the basis for people’s desire as everyone wants to be valued and accepted by others. Everyone participates in different activities throughout one’s life either as one’s profession or as one’s hobbies that give one a sense of achievement or accomplishment. When one cannot accomplish one’s esteem needs, it may cause issues relating to self-esteem or inferiority. Because of inferiority complex or low self-esteem, one may search for respect from other people for improving one’s view of oneself. It is always vital to keep in mind that until one feels good about oneself, it is hard to appreciate the manner others view that person.
