Wants are the form human needs take as they are shaped by culture and individual personality.
By Example - An American needs food but wants a Big Mac, French fries, and soft drink. A person in Papua New Guinea needs food but wants taro, rice yams and pork.
Wants are shaped by one’s society and are described in terms of objects that will satisfy those needs.
