The term wants is c. 1200, "deficiency, insufficiency, shortage," from want (v.) and from Old Norse vant, neuter of vanr "wanting, deficient;" related to Old English wanian "to diminish" (see wane). Meaning "state of destitution, poverty" is recorded from early 14c. Meaning "thing desired, that which is lacking but needed" is from 1560s.
Wants are not basic requirements and are not essential for human survival. For example, if a person feels thirsty then he/she can drink water to fulfill the need. Wants force him/her to drink cool drink or fruit juice. Wants are not mandatory and not necessary for human survival. Satisfy needs over wants.
