Mihály Csíkszentmihályi

Mihály Csíkszentmihályi is a Hungarian psychologist. He created the psychological concept of flow, a highly focused mental state. He is the Distinguished Professor of Psychology and Management at Claremont Graduate University. He is the former head of the department of psychology at the University of Chicago and of the department of sociology and anthropology at Lake Forest College.

Mihály is noted for his work in the study of happiness and creativity, but is best known as the architect of the notion of flow and for his years of research and writing on the topic. Martin Seligman, former president of the American Psychological Association, described Mihály as the world's leading researcher on positive psychology.

Mihály once said: "Repression is not the way to virtue. When people restrain themselves out of fear, their lives are by necessity diminished. Only through freely chosen discipline can life be enjoyed and still kept within the bounds of reason."

It is a state in which people typically experience deep enjoyment, creativity, and a total involvement with life that nothing else seems to matter. This positive state can be controlled, not just left to chance by ordering the information that enters our consciousness, we can discover true happiness and greatly improve the quality of our lives.
