Primary Needs Being Revealed

Escape from Pain

Of all the primary needs, this may be the most important one to examine when attempting to discover the reason for misbehavior. People will go to great lengths to escape pain. Some will use alcohol and/or illegal drugs, while others may fail a class without trying or misbehave to escape the pain of not being able to complete the learning task successfully. In extreme cases, some students commit suicide to escape from pain. A teacher must look to this primary need at the first sign of misbehavior because failing at school is painful.
