I was late to come to the class almost every day, it was because I woke up late and my place was far enough from campus. On that day, there was a motivation class. I arrived to the class when the presentation on motivation class was running. Some of my friends were presenting their group poster and the others were looking to them.
I came and my lecturer, Bu Lidya, asked me to join to my group. She did not really strict to the ruler and she was wise enough. She did not complain about her students who came late and I agreed with her. Because if the students came to the class even though they were late, it meant that she/he who came late had high motivation to that class. She/he came late maybe because they had external problem and we should tolerant about it and I think it was better then who came to the class without motivation to study.
After presentation session was finished, we were back to the material. The material that day was about needs theory by Maslow. I had some criticize about that theory. The Maslow Theory said that to fulfill the higher needs, absolutely we should fulfill the lower level of needs first. So logically, to fulfill the prime needs, a person must sacrifice the higher needs. For example, needs of self-esteem is higher than prime needs. So a person should sacrifice their self-esteem to get prime needs. And I think it is wrong concept if it applied to our life. Some of literature said that the Maslow theory should be reversed, and I agreed with this opinion.
