Quote

“According to communication researcher Will Shutz, all humans have three interpersonal needs: control, inclusion, and affection. We each have a need to control others and to be controlled by others. We also each have a need to be included in others’ lives or to include others in our lives. Finally, we each have a need for affection or being liked by others and the need to express our liking for others.”
