Abraham Maslow
He studies, figures out or comes up with this theory or six levels of what we need…

Each level is a step up, only after you have completed step one, can you go to step two, and so on, until you are up to step six. See below:

Psycho Babble is spewed forth by the P101 students of the world; they took the beginning Psychology class, now are on step SIX of Maslow hierarchy of motivations, and therefore go travel. Because they are perfect, they volunteer to save the planet… hehehe

- Self-actualization—the fulfillment of one's greatest human potential. -

TRAVEL HIERARCHY
1. Food - Water - (1)
2. Room - (2)
3. Party - (3)
NO step 4,
Stall, Airplane drops, failure to advance to step four.

(2) security and safety.
I am big on security, and safety, I believe that anger has to major types, fear and frustration. People that are afraid will become extremely angry, or sadly shut down when too afraid. I suffer frustration anger, I am not sure why, maybe some low level rage where I am constantly being forced to wait… I need to always wait, be patient, and allow the world to get up to speed. Example: I do not speak French good, I can say to a taxi, the word.
- Poulet - Chicken
I know this is many layers away from telling the person the exact location where I am going. Impossible, and I do not know… I am endlessly curious, I want to find, discover, explore, and I never will and never have read the restaurant part of the LP guidebook. It is like smashing to the explorer in me, instructions on how not to explore.

The Taxi hears Chicken.
He says to himself, chicken, no location chicken.
I repeat chicken.
He starts to think, oh, you want chicken.
He says,
- Where? -
I repeat Chicken.
I then have to look at eyes, this only takes two minutes.
If the brain is connected, the evolution of man has evolved, the taxi driver know, I am from a foreign planet, I do not know, I need help, he goes, OK, I know chicken place, I will take you. Dangerous maneuver now because the taxi driver can change any amount of money to go to any location and is now driving under the motivation of greed or love of money. (I do like meters, if they work.)

Intuitive people is what I search for, ones that understand without having to nail with a sledgehammer notes to their heads.

6 to get to 6, to the curious level, age groups.

AGE
0-10 - 70 percent of children are curious
10-20 - 20 percent of children are curious
20-30 - 5 percent are curious
30-40 - 15 percent are curious
40-50 - 25 percent are curious
50-60 - 40 percent are curious
60-80 - 50 percent are curious

20-30 age groups is your number one age group for volunteers, in the segment of life where a person is least prepared to go perform at a self-actualized level, they go and volunteer to save the planet. The motivation is step FOUR of Maslow motivation theory. The want to show competence, prestige, and self-esteem at the expense of people, they want to be the boss, and have people listen. Fame, fashion, music, MTV and all the other dreams of prestige or need for popularity are kicking in, not any mastery of anything. They are not in control of any career, vocation, or expertise. Yet, they will go forth and spew forth-educational crap to a few who only want their money, and will listen for money… hehehe

MASLOW SIX LEVELS
The American psychologist Abraham Maslow devised a six-level hierarchy of motives that, according to his theory, determine human behavior. Maslow ranks human needs as follows:
(1) physiological;
(2) security and safety;
(3) love and feelings of belonging;
(4) competence, prestige, and esteem;
(5) self-fulfillment; and
(6) curiosity and the need to understand.

No single theory of motivation has been universally accepted, but a direction is evident. Formerly, many psychologists stressed the reduction of stimulation to its lowest possible level. An organism was thought to pursue that behavior most likely to bring about this desired state of no stimulation. Many human physiological systems do in fact operate in this manner. Recent cognitive theories of motivation, however, portray humans seeking to optimize rather than minimize stimulation and are thus better able to account for exploratory behavior, the need for variety, aesthetic reactions, and curiosity (2)
