Fun and Enjoyment 樂趣

Fun and Enjoyment 樂趣

Choice Theory is based on the principle that human motivation is a ” here and now” phenomenon.

One of the motivators that drive the behavior of all human beings is Fun, Enjoyment.

Choice theory embraces the principle that  people have an innate need or motivation that directs but does not compel their behavior toward fun or at least enjoyment.

From the cradle to the grave, human beings find ways to be comfortable and to enjoy their surroundings.

Choice theory 創始人, William Glasser (1998) 強調學習過程中樂趣的重要性:

We are the only land-based creatures who play all our lives and because we learn all our lives , the day we stop playing is the day we stop learning.

People who fall in love are learning a lot about each other and they find themselves laughing almost continually.

One of the first times infants laugh is when someone plays peek-a-boo with them.

I believe they laugh because that game teaches them something very useful.

They learn, I am I and you are you .( p. 41).

青少年或是成人 , 不管老少,  在做自我從新調整過程的時候,  最重要的是重新定義或改變他們對生活上遇到問題的思想與行為,進而轉換為以樂趣為主導的思維模式.
