Question
In line with Moller, Meier & Wall (2010), although their contribution is a theoretical proposal.
I am interested in methods to experimentally manipulate flow, e.g. listening to an audio message, intrinsically motivated tasks, listening to music, etc.
I think it is really interesting but with little developments, it's potential to study flow is enormous.
