Needs are Relative and Subjective

Having comprehensively read this theory, and made comparison with my life experiences especially from this part of the world, I'm of the opinion that the term 'need' is relative and subjective.
Take the Need for Affiliation. Personally, I hardly care about people's perception of me. I'm not saying that I don't care of what people speak about my group interactions but I don't allow their opinions to shape my way of life. I live my live in accordance with the dictate of my psych.
Also, I have come across a sizable numbers of individuals that are less interested in power, both at the institutional and personal levels.
However I am not trying to say that the theory is not tenable, or that it is not applicable to a significant section of human entity, but it is societal and based on individual experiences and exposure while growing.
Everybody wants to be happy and their different ways of attaining this happiness.
