Application Of Motivation Theory In Enhancing Maturity In College  Students
The Maslow designed the motivation theory in psychology.
Sayak Karmakar

He defines motivation as a process of satisfying the particular needs of an individual, which they require in the long-run development. A human need seems to be a feeling of lasting condition, which involves the use of satisfaction or relief. It influences the action of a person in the long term. Some of the needs like curiosity may not decrease like hunger in the long run. Human needs can be ranked hierarchically. Some demands tend to be the essential requirement of every human being, and nothing else matters in their absence. The high ranked needs of a human being seem to be them psychological, then the safety, love. After love, Maslow has ranked the esteem of an individual and then the self-actualization.
