Titchener into the English term empathy.[3][4] Alexithymia (the word comes from the Ancient Greek words λέξις (lexis, "diction", "word") and θυμός (thumos, "soul, as the seat of emotion, feeling, and thought") modified by an alpha-privative, literally meaning "without words for emotions"), is a term to describe a state of deficiency in understanding, processing, or describing emotions in oneself.[5]

According to this pyramid, one of the last levels one may achieve in life is "self-actualization", which is the idea of being content and proud of yourself and the accomplishments you have made.
