Just because something is written on paper, does not make it applicable.

Maslow's hierarchy of needs is a theory and nothing more. It is not the omnipotent truth to all society. In it's time, the theory addressed relatively basic psychology, but as people continue to grow more psychologically diverse, there is no one definitive answer.

I agree with the theory that if certain basic needs are not met, then that person cannot focus, but the "hierarchy" is defined by each person. After Maslow's first tier of basic needs are met, the line begins to blur. Although it's not written in any textbook, I am writing it now: As a fairly content person, free from many social insecurities, I feel not the need for validation from my peers. (which is Maslows 4th tier of hierarchy.) While I desire things like respect and intimacy, it's not something that is going to hinder my productivety (Maslows 5th tier of hierarchy.) because I defined myself as a focused person. In fact, I don't agree that the road to self-actualization is paved by social acceptance.

I am not sure I even agree with his definition of needs. Many of them seem like basic wants and desires.
