Free Driving Needs Quiz

  

Welcome!


This quiz is based on human needs psychology which is an evolved adaptation of Maslow's hierarchy of needs and explains what motivates and drives us at a fundamental level.

The conclusion will reveal which two needs are the most dominant in your life at the moment and what this means for you. Human needs drive all of your behaviours and once you understand which needs are most important for you, you can learn how to shift and improve your habits and relationships with greater ease.

For best results: Don't overthink your answer, just go with your first gut feeling or thought.

Congratulations on taking a big step towards understanding yourself better!



Something to remember about your dominant needs, the two you scored most highly on. There are various ways to meet your needs and some serve you better than others but meeting your needs should never be at the expense of your own or another persons well being. The challenge in life is to meet our needs in a way that serves all involved and in that way improves your experience of life greatly. Making these distinctions can sometimes be difficult but like anything it's a skill that can be mastered and can provide inestimable value to living a good life.
