Transcription: 
Hi I'm Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi. I was born in Italy of Hungarian parents. And I went through World War II and I saw how horrible people could be to each other and I decided to study psychology to make things, to understand better this thing. So I came here to the United States and I have been a psychologist for 40 years. I have published since then many books and on my research on happiness and well-being, flow. I have two children, two sons and five grandchildren of whom one was adopted from Ethiopia. And I'm still teaching and hope to continue teaching and writing and doing research as long as I can.
