harlow s monkeys
Harlow’s Monkeys
  • He separated infant monkeys from their mothers a few hours after birth, then arranged for the young animals to be “raised” by two kinds of surrogate monkey mother machines, both equipped to dispense milk. One mother was made out of bare wire mesh. The other was a wire mother covered with soft terry cloth. Harlow’s first observation was that monkeys who had a choice of mothers spent far more time clinging to the terry cloth surrogates, even when their physical nourishment came from bottles mounted on the bare wire mothers. This suggested that infant love was no simple response to the satisfaction of physiological needs. Attachment was not primarily about hunger or thirst. It could not be reduced to nursing.
humans need to feel a sense of belonging and acceptance
Humans need to feel a sense of belonging and acceptance…
  • whether it comes from a large social group, such as clubs, office culture, religious groups, professional organizations, sports teams, gangs, or small social connections (family members, intimate partners, mentors, close colleagues, confidants).
  • They need to love and be loved (sexually and non-sexually) by others.
  • In the absence of these elements, many people become susceptible to loneliness, social anxiety, and clinical depression.
  • This need for belonging can often overcome the physiological and security needs.
    • A child will cling to an abusive parent.
    • an anorexic, for example, may ignore the need to eat and the security of health for a feeling of control and belonging.

  • Level I (lower level)- need for the respect of others, the need for status, recognition, fame, prestige, and attention
