THE FLOW PERSONALITY

“May what I do flow from me like a river, no forcing and no holding back, the way it is with children.”
― Rainer Maria Rilke

The Flow personality are those who follow their own intuitive feelings in activities which are enjoyable to them without having any other purpose or goal beyond the enjoyment… They are activities which consume their attention in the “here and now” allowing them to often forget themselves and lose track of time.

They are relatively free from the expectations and goals of the social environment… If possible, they also seek work which is enjoyable to them while making financial factors secondary… They have come to realize that the meaning of life is through enjoying their own special interests… And also know this can only occur when they are free from the expectations and competition so important to be successful in society… Although their behavior is different, they do strive to live in harmony with others in the social environment.

An important part of the Flow personality is its creative imagination… Since the  they do not identify with expected standards they are able to allow their imagination to flow beyond those who have identified with social goals… The freedom of imagination is perhaps the most enjoyable of all for it allows them to frequently become aware of new perceptions and life exoeriences.

Boredom is not a problem to the Flow personality even when they are alone for they realize their most creative time is often when in a state of solitude and free from all the distractions of the social environment… However their creative imagination is also free to participate in many social activities including family life, entertainments and being with others.
