Optimal Experience : Psychological Studies of Flow in Consciousness Paperback

Edited by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, Isabella Selega Csikszentmihalyi



What constitutes enjoyment of life? Optimal Experience offers a comprehensive survey of theoretical and empirical investigations of the 'flow' experience, a desirable or optimal state of consciousness that enhances a person's psychic state.

The authors show the diverse contexts and circumstances in which flow is reported in different cultures, and describe its positive emotional impacts.

They reflect on ways in which the ability to experience flow affects work satisfaction, academic success, and the overall quality of life
