Biological and Humanistic Paper
Abraham Maslow introduce to society a new perspective with a few new concepts, his idea the authentic self is the core of a person who strives for growth and acceptance of oneself. Maslow is a humanistic psychologist who believes a person is push and pulled by mechanical forces and that why he came up with his theory of hierarchy needs (Bellott, 1990).
Therefore, Maslow came up with these needs to determine how it influences a person personality. Physiological needs are person basic needs such as oxygen, food, and water this is the strongest of all the needs because a person cannot live without him or her. Safety needs, when the physiological is satisfied a person controlling thoughts and behaviors and the need for security becomes active.

Feeding the child influences the oral personality; toilet training will lead to anal personality. Personality is described by humanistic theories especially, Maslow theory of needs.

If a person does not have any disorder in their family history, it means the person personality with stay consistent throughout his or her lives. A person allows fear to take over his or her lives, phobias will occur and extreme fears will appears and, a person will lose control of his or her reality. Cognitive label is describing the thoughts process, such as a person may be thinking about living alone canned cause antisocial behaviors but over time could turn into depression.
