Deficiency Needs or Growth Needs?Abraham Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs led to his book, Motivation and Personality. Much has since been researched and written about Maslow’s theory on motivation but his work still remains intact and is used in studying motivation today. Much of the motivational studies relate to workplace motivation.

- Deficiency Needs- also known as D- Needs
- Growth Needs- also known as “being needs” or B- Needs
- Self- Actualization
