A need is a need for organisms to survive. Needs are often distinguished from desires. In the case of desires, a lack of what it needs causes an obvious adverse effect: a defect or premature death. However, if a desire were true, there would not be any need for any kind of government, as people would have no need for money. But this is not true, as needs and desires are different. Needs must be balanced against desires in order for a society to function.
A healthy life is not possible without a self-fulfilling need. A Dilemma is a false belief where one party believes it is required to do something in order to get something else, or achieve some desired end. A good example of such a dilemma could be the so-called Dilemma of the Academician vs. the Academician’s Friend. The Academician states that since his friend is successful he must therefore become successful himself in order to help his friend achieve the same degree. His friend states that he does not have the talent for studying and therefore he will not be able to attain the same degree as an Academician with less effort. Each sides believe that in order to attain their desired goals, they must stoop down and do what is required of them.
The predicament thus becomes apparent. The Academician must realize his mistake of thinking that by stooping down and doing what his friend wishes he can be a success too. He has to recognize his own shortcomings of his friends, as well. Only when each of them has realized his or her own limitations can the Dilemma be solved. Similarly, the human needs are also not limitless but can be satisfied by the existence of other beings who have better intentions.
All Dilemmas are solved when people come together in order to fulfill a common goal. For instance in social work, the Social Work Research Council has defined a set of seven universal needs. These need including the physical, social and psychological needs which are necessary in order to lead an individual to leading a productive life. Each of these seven needs cannot be satisfied by the existence of another person. It is only when the Social Work Research Council has made a declaration that all the seven basic needs of humans can be fulfilled by the existence of another person.
In academician’s dilemma, the first difficulty faced by most academics is the lack of money. The second difficulty faced by most academicians is the lack of time. The third difficulty faced by most academicians is their personal safety. The academician is likely to find it difficult to ask for grants and loans from banks in order to meet his basic needs.
The solution to this problem is the need for grants and loans offered by government bodies. This will help the academicians to meet the basic needs that he/she must make sure that these needs are met to attain success in their careers.
