    1. "Want"= desire, not necessity/required. (Example: "I want to eat dessert. I want to drive an expensive car."/ Both eating dessert and driving an expensive car are not necessities in life.)

    2. "Need"= necessity (Example: "I need to get a job. I need to eat lunch."/ Both working and eating (in general) are basic necessities in life.)

    Sometime people say "need" when they SHOULD say "want." (Example: "I need that car!"/ This is not intended to be literal.)

    Hope this helps!

    a "Need" tells something about your necessities while "Want" tells something about your preferences or choices.

    ex: "I NEED something to drink. I WANT to have a bottle of soft driks."

    in order for you to solve your thirstiness, you NEED to drink, then it's up to you what do you WANT to drink.
