This is based on the 16 Basic Desire Theory that was made by Professor Steven Reiss. He believes that these 16 desires are what drive humans to be who they are and explain motivation (our motives). These desires specifically guide meaningful behaviors. The combination and level of each of these desires are what makes each individual unique.

Disclaimer: While Science is an amazing subject that helps answer many questions about humanity, it is ONLY complimentary to God's word.
