help please I can't understand this text! would you please explain it in understanding way? Scientist s such as Mihaly study the impact of flow states(flow state is a psychical state when you become absorbed in what you're doing and you loss self_ consciousness) on human happiness, productivity, and success. In on study, 250 high-flow and low- flow teenagers were asked to report on their feeling and activities at regular intervals. The high-flow teenagers generally reported more time spent on hobbies, sports, and homework, and measured higher levels of self esteem and engagement. Interestingly, however, they self reported lower levels of fun than the low flow teenagers. Apparently high flow teenagers see their low flow peers as experecing more fun engaging in low flow amusements, such as video games, TV and socializing. thank you

This is a survey that compares how much this group of teenagers is mentally absorbed when doing everyday activities (sports, hobbies, homework). The first group is more mentally absorbed in what they do and seems to be more confident and more engaged..however, it seems that they have less fun than the second group, the teenagers who are less mentally absorbed in their activities (probably don't lose self-consciousness), they state that they are happier because they experience activities such as video games, watching TV, socializing.

The scientific research showed that more intense students, who really focused on their hobbies, were confident, but reported having less fun than the students who were more relaxed.

High flow students = More successful in terms of productivity [hobies / studies] & character [self esteem] Low flow students = Less successful The high flow students reported/said that they feel that the other group (low flow students) are having more fun doing simple activities such as playing video games, watching tv and socializing. Hope that helps!
