Where would "money" fall?
Maslow's more primitive needs were at the bottom, so I'd say money ranks in the "safety" part - second from the bottom.What does that say about the current state of society?
Is the Quality of Life really high close to Death?
@ DamianI believe it's suggesting that your quality of life will be higher if you don't worry less about dying, and quality of life with be poor if you worry about survival all the time.
oops. I meant "if you WORRY LESS about dying"
@anonymousIf you are correct, then the Y-axis should read "Amount of worry" not "Things you worry about".
how about: the more things you worry about, the greater your chances for survival, but the lower the quality of life. The less things you worry about, the greater your quality of life, but you are more likely to die.
Or, when your quality of life is low and you worry about a lot of things, you get "survival," and when your quality of life is high and you worry about few things, you get "death."Which I realize is quite similar to what kjersti said, but without the value of the x-axis being causally related to the value of the y-axis; instead, the values of each axis are causally related to the identity of the point on the graph.I'm no mathematician, though, so don't take my word for it.
This is awesome. One of my favourites, actually.
Very nice, now that I understand it... :)
I went and looked at his pyramid on wikipedia. I could see ages 0 - 70 climbing up the left side and 70 - 80 falling down the right.
Abraham's books are too thick anyway. I prefer these index cards..this is in my top 10
Excellent! and oddly related to the previous one...
I believe this is the graphical representation of "Life sucks and then you die."
i think it means that when your quality of life is terrible, you think about survival, but when you have great quality of life, you only think about when it's gonna end. kinda ironic i think =)
DEAR GOD THANK YOU ANON AT 3:41 PM.The graph is one of y vs. x. The Y axis being one particular THING you worry about. When your quality of life is lower [the X axis] you worry about survival, like poverty stricken individuals. Or people recently afflicted with a natural disaster. When your quality of life is high, you don't even worry about your death. In fact, you just worry about who you're going to date tomorrow or how you're going to look good or what you're going to purchase with your paycheck.Brilliant reduction of Maslow's pyramid, btw. It really shows how superficial people are today. Thank you Indexed dude. I also think that money would be a line with a slope of one going smack dab in the middle or higher. You always worry about money. Also, please remember that generally, y is the dependent variable and x is the independent variable. That means the value of y DEPENDS on the value of x. Please think about that and you just passed the first chapter of any Science 101 class.
Yeah Hagy dude, thanks.
you worry about your status in the society, not to look like somebody nuts for the others...
