The last section outlines some novel directions of methodological research that will hopefully lead to a more accurate, complete, and integrated modeling and hence a gold measurement standard for flow. Capturing Flow in Special Endeavors Description of the Measurement Method The interviews that Csikszentmihalyi (1975/2000) conducted with participants from a wide range of occupations produced a wealth of textual descriptions of the flow experience in various domains of human endeavor. Some of the most insightful and clear descriptions of flow were then selected and condensed to create the first measurement method for flow, the flow questionnaire (FQ; Csikszentmihalyi and Csikszentmihalyi 1988b).

B. Moneta Fig. 1 The first model of the flow state (Adapted from Csikszentmihalyi 1975/2000) The First Model of the Flow State The FQ is a way to approach the empirical study of flow as represented by the first graphic model of the flow state (Csikszentmihalyi 1975/2000, p. 17), which is reproduced with some additions in Fig. 1. The model partitions the world of experience in three main states—flow, anxiety, and boredom—that are represented as nonoverlapping areas of a challenge by skill Cartesian space.

The ESF questionnaire additionally asked for the level of challenge and skills and used the ratio of both as an indicator of flow. Although the ESF questionnaire does measure components of flow too, researchers take this ratio as the indictor of flow and do not rely on a direct measure of components. , Fullagar and Kelloway 2009; Nielsen and Cleal 2010; Rheinberg et al. 2007). Alternative measures besides asking subjects in interviews and standardized questionnaires arise from neuroimaging and other psychobiological correlates of the experience of flow.
