I have felt that way in sports, running, art, design, sometimes with work tasks or like writing an essay, and sometimes with things like yardwork or housework. It's not a super common experience, though.
I can't imagine how it would be type-related though...
Your kisses, sweeter than honey. But guess what, so is my money.
i'm not sure...no...what do you mean? i'm not understanding what he means by flow?
Flow is the mental state of operation in which a person in an activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and success in the process of the activity.
Part of his theory is that you can enter flow by following the conditions.
1. One must be involved in an activity with a clear set of goals. This adds direction and structure to the task.
2. One must have a good balance between the perceived challenges of the task at hand and his or her own perceived skills. One must have confidence that he or she is capable to do the task at hand.
3. The task at hand must have clear and immediate feedback. This helps the person negotiate any changing demands and allows him or her to adjust his or her performance to maintain the flow state.
You enter flow when the challenge and your skill level meet in the flow area.
Colloquial terms for this or similar mental states include: to be on the ball, in the zone, in the groove, or keeping your head in the game.
But it isn't necessarily a feeling of effortless. More defined by a loss of self and a clean feedback loop. You are one with the environment.
I can slip into the flow naturally when my mind and body are in tune and I have adequate energy. it really is like surfing like lady x said.
when I'm tired or upset I can be extremely apathetic. that's kind of the opposite, apparently.
Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?
