Summary/Abstract: The paper continues the presentation of the cognitive-experiential self-theory (CEST) analysing the content of the experiential system with an emphasis on basic needs and beliefs. There are two super-ordinate basic needs, the need to behave according to the hedonic principle and the need to control arousal, and there are four subordinate basic needs. All the subordinate basic needs are assumed to vary along two dimensions, a bipolar dimension of positive versus negative affect and a unipolar dimension of degree of cortical excitation. The four subordinate basic needs are sources of four corresponding basic beliefs people acquire based on their experiences regarding the fulfillment and frustration of their basic needs. These basic beliefs along with the basic needs are considered to be among the most important constructs in an implicit theory of reality.
