The concept of “gifted needs” for me is referring to Balanceology: The 4 M’s of motivation, meaning, measurement, mitigation. Humans are motivated (M-1) to satisfy our inborn needs. As we satisfy more needs we have increased meaning (M-2) in our life. Measurement (M-3) allows us to assess the degree we are satisfying our needs. Mitgational skills (M-4) are those techniques aimed at satisfying out natural needs.
