 Our behavior is governed by our needs
Dr KK Aggarwal
Human behaviour is governed by needs. Every behavior is justified medically as every action is performed according to one's own psyche, which in turn depends upon the needs. 
Needs influence our values, thoughts and interactions with other people; needs are what drive us to act in a certain manner.
The most basic or primitive needs are food, sleep, water, shelter, procreation; these satisfy the physical body. Most thefts, minor criminal acts, eve teasing, rapes, etc. are to fulfil these needs. One may even be driven to steal to satisfy basic needs such as hunger.
If the physical needs are met, a person then moves on to the next level of needs, the mental needs, which can be at the level of mind, intellect or ego.
The need for achievement or the desire and ambition to excel satisfy the needs of the mind and the intellect. While, ego-based needs focus on power, position, money, awards, respect or appreciation.
