Flow is a state in which a person is fully involved in an activity, decreasing self-consciousness and sense of time. This process requires a person to be extremely focused, as well as exactly have the skills to master a task. Achieving flow is desirable, because during flow a person can reach maximum skill level as well as creativity within a domain. However, measuring when a person is in flow and subsequently finding out how to get a person in a flow state is difficult, because flow causes persons to decrease self-consciousness, not recalling to what extent flow occurred.
