Fluir (Flow): Una psicologia de la felicidad

Made the book take longer to read than intended because I just found the writing style not a great fit for me. I feel like the book merely points out things that, on some level, we all intuitively know already.

Through an extensive amount of case studies, controlled experiments, and research of historical figures, this study illustrates that flow is a singularly productive and desirable state. I also have qualms in C’s method of data collection. Unfortunately, this is one of the could-have-been-an-article books. Becoming immersed in the activity.

Peter Berger and Thomas Luckmann, the influential phenomenological sociologists, have written that our sense of the universe in which we live is rlow together by conversation. Despite the absence of such scholarly devices as footnotes and references in the text there is, however, an extensive notes section at the endCsikszentmihalyi is clearly a researcher, and his style does not adequately escape the dry academia Al recall having to write myself as a psych undergrad.

So, I am officially giving up. I think he watered it down too much.

I also found that this book made some obvious points, and also repeated a lot of feliciad which was not needed. The concept of Flow is a very important, life-changing concept, which is why I tried to read felocidad book to get a thorough understanding of it.


Not what I expected. To create harmony in whatever one does, it is a task that involves transforming the entirety of life into a single flow activity, with unified goals that provide constant purpose.

There was a time when it was admirable to be an amateur poet or a dilettante scientist, because it meant that the quality of life could be improved by engaging in such activities. I wanted to like this book. One example would have been sufficient. Does it contain any scientific evidence?

So, yeah, the book is a bit of a bore to read, but not just felicisad the prose lacks personality. None, however, have concerned themselves with the psychology behind achieving such positive states, and how a person might apply those principles and make possible the transition from theory to practice.

Lists with This Book. The book is content in merely observing and categorizing human behavior, an attribute of popular psychology, which I feel gives psychology demerits in credibility. It’s obviously dated, and the language is particularly harsh toward addicts, women, and folks who oa non-traditional family paths at times.

During flow, people typically experience deep enjoyment, creativity, and a total involvement with life. But when the subject was asked to answer a questionnaire used to determine if someone is depressed, his answers revealed that he was indeed the opposite of what he was telling people. For many, the lack of structure of those hours is devastating. There is no question that to survive, and especially to survive in a complex society, it is necessary to work for external goals and to postpone flyir gratifications.

A bigger issue is that, while the author lays out seemingly clear-cut requirements This presents some interesting ideas that are almost self-evident when someone bothers pointing them out explicitly.


What slips below the threshold of awareness is the concept of self, the information we use to represent to ourselves who we are.

This could ha You know that uncle you have, who doesn’t have any kids and loves to talk your ear off every Thanksgiving, and he’s a really nice guy, and he seems to know a lot of stuff, but when you look up the stuff he quotes he seems to always have it a bit off, and he never seems to have a book with him so maybe he did all his reading when he was young, but there’s no point calling bullshit on him, and you get a sense he’s not really listening anyway — well, this book is written by that guy.

Had trouble finishing it, not because it was too dense as at one point I was afraid it would be, but because it was just not compelling.

Leisure provides a relaxing respite from work, but it generally consists of passively absorbing information, without using any skills or exploring new opportunities for action. Nothing illustrates as clearly our changing attitudes toward the value of experience as the fate of those two words.
