How Do You Experience Your Needs?
Felt any discomfort lately? How about desire, such as hunger? The former typically prompts you to distance yourself from something. The latter to bring something in, namely food.
Indigentology opens here with a homeostatic paradigm. It sees the experience of need as a rising and falling in some life functioning level. Experiencing a return to some normal functioning level is felt as relief. According to indigentology, this is homeostatic equilibrium.
What Do You Need?
As applied here, homeostasis is the regulation of internal levels necessary for functioning by maintaining some balance with external levels of the environment.
As a cyclic process, we continue to utilize the 4-part cycle diagrams to illustrate need experience as homeostasis. And we’ll continue to complement this indigenous perspective with other perspectives to help us appreciate our needs.
This is also about being engaging. At the bottom of each article is space for your feedback. You are encouraged to share your perspective, your understanding, your wisdom. After all, it’s your needs we are implicitly talking about. Let’s communicate about communicating needs. What do you need right now?
There is no need except for homeostasis.
The experience of needs is the fluctuating levels of life’s functioning. This theme is broken down into these subsections.
H0000s Overview. Goes into a little further depth what this outline merely introduces.
H0100s Homeostasis=need experience. Need is the internal experience of rising and falling levels of life functions.
H0200s Need relief=homeostasis equilibrium. Returning to normal equilibrium levels is what we experience as need relief.
H0300s Relief options=gendered equilibrium. Options for relieving need tend to follow routines organized around gender traits.
H0400s Growth needs=patterned equilibrium. Relieving needs lead into developmental needs toward one’s full potential.
H0500s Resource needs=psychosocial equilibrium. Relieving needs involves a balance between internal and external available means.
H0600s Optimizing=psychosocial development. Relieving some needs more than others impacts one’s psychosocial development.
This exploration of need experience is broken down into separate articles, each featuring an illustrative diagram.
"There's a time to plant and a time to reap."
What if there was a tool to find when it's best to plant relationships and when to reap from them? Now there is.
about this new field called indigentology, the study of human need.
But to be fair,
it is (so far)
the only blog about this new field called indigentology.
The blog takes these ideas and tries to make them plain.
