According to psychologist Henry Murray (1893-1988), personality is organized based upon a number of needs, motives and environmental forces. Among the needs identified by Murray are those for achievement, intimacy and power. Since Murray first proposed his theory, a number of other psychologists have studied these individual needs. For example, research on the need for achievement has demonstrated that people with a high need to achieve tend to take on greater challenges. Learn more about Murray's theory of psychogenic needs.

Thanks for the valuable information. I am working at developing a human resource pool. A great variety of people that have a great variety of contributions to make in the life of a child.
These breakdown of needs will be of great assistance in defining all the ways people can contribute and make a difference.
