In this quote, several elements of flow are combined: noncontradictory demands for the activity, the issue of control, and the feeling of egolessness.

But in flow, one does not stop to evaluate the feedback-action and reaction have become so well practiced as to be automatic. The person is too concerned with the experience to reflect on it. Here is the clear account of a basketball player:I play my best games almost by accident. I go out and play on the court and I can tell if I’m shooting o.k. or if I’m not- so I know if I’m playing good or like shit-but if I’m having a super game I can’t tell until after the game… guys make fun of me because I can lose track of the score and I’ll ask Russell what the score is and he’ll tell me and sometimes it breaks people up-they think “That kid must be real dumb.”
