Maslow's hierarchy of liberal bureaucracy needs

The pyramid shown here represents Maslow's hierarchy of needs, a psychological theory first published in 1943, expressing the foundations upon which a healthy, rounded personality is built. It does seem to have a degree of credibility, although the inclusion of sex at the physiological level is open to reasonable debate and argument.

One of my more endearing/maddening habits, depending on who you talk to, is that of being easily distracted. So I was intrigued to find the distracted hierarchy of needs, as inspired by Abraham Maslow.

It wouldn't be so bad, but for the fact that Ros then took great delight, at dinner that evening, of saying, "Oh look, it's a bunny rabbit!". And sure enough, I looked over my shoulder. And sure enough, there wasn't a rabbit...

* Deep sigh *
