Six Human Needs Quiz

What are the Six Human Needs?

Tony Robbins teaches that we all have six human needs that we meet in our lives in various ways. If the first four are met then life is good. If all six are met then we are also spiritually fulfilled.

How can they help you?

Understanding and using these needs actively in your life will improve both your life and the lives of those around you. It can transform relationships, boost careers, increase and improve your friendships – in fact improve any area of your life.

WHAT ARE THE SIX HUMAN NEEDS?

The six needs are:

Certainty
Variety
Significance
Love/Connection
Growth
Contribution

For us to feel fulfilled in life, each of us has a slightly different requirement in terms of how important each need is. This can also change depending on the circumstances. We have different needs at home compared to at work for example.

HOW CAN I FULFIL MY NEEDS?

There are positive and negative ways to fulfil these needs.

For example, you can feel significant by doing well at something or by always being the one who moans to others about their life. Both will provide you with significance but which type of person would you rather spend time with?

WHERE CAN I USE MY KNOWLEDGE OF THE SIX HUMAN NEEDS?

In any relationship, family, work or friends, when you figure out what someone’s needs are and you help them meet those needs in a positive way, everyone will benefit.
