Abstract

The construct of absorption (effortless engagement) has been the subject of a small number of disciplinespecific

that compared psychological qualities of absorption in everyday music listening scenarios with

experiences across different activities in a variety of contexts were tapped as soon as possible after they

research: first, that certain activities are inherently particularly absorbing; second, that absorption is best

recording descriptions of involving experiences of any kind. Eight weeks after submitting descriptive

different activities shared a subset of involving features, and confirmed the importance of multi-sensory

agent in the facilitation of absorption because it affords multiple potential entry points to involvement

semantic malleability makes it adaptable to a variety of circumstances. The MODTAS provided insufficient

divisions are constructs that are inherently problematic.
