Manfred Max-Neef's fundamental human needs - TXG

Article By TXG   |   19th August 2019

The economist, Manfred Max-Neef Rosenberg says that there are nine self explanatory needs:

  • Affection
  • Creation
  • Recreation
  • Freedom
  • Identity
  • Understanding
  • Participation
  • Protection
  • Subsistence

Try and find yourself a moment of quiet and then ask yourself – if you had to give yourself a score out of 10 (10 being a master of the art and 1 being, only just getting started), how would you rate yourself against these needs. If you have any that are low scores, what could you do today, this week, this month and this year to get that score up in a way that meets those needs?
