This is the final week of the class, and you have been introduced to a variety of personality theories. Thank you for working hard and engaging in these discussions. As we conclude the course, this week focuses on the humanistic perspective of personality, with special focus on Maslowâ€™s Hierarchy of Needs. Maslowâ€™s theory focuses on a unique perspective of personality and is based on motivation.
Take a moment to refresh your understanding of Maslowâ€™s Hierarchy of Needs.

Please share an example. Finally, how would you explain self-actualization? Do you think every individual is able to reach self-actualization? Why or why not?
