In my last post, I looked at eight of the 16 Human Desires identified by psychologist Steven Reiss.
Here are eight more.
Have you ever seen a pair of 8-year-olds beat the holy hell out of each other for fun? What about two 48-year-olds sitting around for 12 hours on a Sunday, watching football? We LOVE physical activity, no matter whether we’re engaging in it, or we’re watching others do the same.
The desire for power is closely related to the desire to be in control. We want to be on top of the heap—both because of the status it gives us, and because of the feeling we get when we’re there. (Heck, even kids sing “I’m the king of the castle, and you’re the dirty rascal.”)
