|Abstract: ||This study sets off from the construct of "flow activity or experience"
(Csikszentmihalyi, 1982, 1990, 2000), or "optimal experience" to know the
living activities that can provide this state. According to the author, they occur
when the energy of an individual is focused on experience: thoughts and
mixed feelings disappear, one loses track of time and space. He also argues
that work can trigger the flow, a phenomenon confirmed by (Veiga Branco,
2004 a, b; 2007, 2010 Agostinho, 2009), although it can be achieved by any
Objective: To understand the activities leading to "flow state"
(Csikszentmihalyi, 1982, 1990, 2000), according to the perception of a sample
of preschool, primary and lower secondary school teachers.
Method: A transversal, descriptive and qualitative study, using "grounded
theory" methodology, with semi-structured interviews conducted from
January to March 2011 in a purposive sample of 60 subjects: 7 preschool
teachers and 53 primary and lower secondary school teachers, aged 22 to 59,
within 4 to 30 years of working experience. The obtained discursive contents
were subjected to a content analysis, generating a "categorical tree" with 3
generations, built around the activities that provide the "flow state"
(Csikszentmihalyi, 1982, 1990, 2000).
Conclusions: The study of the "flow state" includes a tree of 13 categories,
which will be presented in descending order according to the number of
discursive units: "Love" composed of 97 discursive units; "Friends" (93);
"Experiencing Nature" (84); "Family" (63); "Fare Niente" (59); "Travels" (53);
"Musicality" (46); "Sleep" (35); "Reading" (32); "Loving your job" (27);
"Socialising" and "Having a Bath" (23); and finally "Having Money" consisting
of 22 discursive units.|
