List of Connection Experience Types
Flow experiences are identified by Csikszentmihalyi.
Flow experiences are typically associated with activities (games, mountain climbing, etc.) one is competent in. In a flow experience, one's attention becomes highly focussed on the activity, one merges with the action itself, one's becomes certain of one's actions.
Flow experiences are autotelic, meaning the motivation and joy is in the activity itself, and not in any end goal (like winning, or for money).
Csikszentmihalyi speculates about conditions that would encourage flow experiences. The gist is that the activity should neither be too simple as to induce boredom or too complex as to induce anxiety and self-doubt.
