The current investigation studies the relationship between Self Efficacy and Flow among Young Adults. Only Csíkszentmihályi seems to have published suggestions for extrinsic applications of the flow concept, such as design methods for playgrounds to elicit the flow experience. Other practitioners of Csíkszentmihályi's flow concept focus on intrinsic applications, such as spirituality, performance improvement, or self-help. His work has also informed the measurement of donor momentum by The New Science of Philanthropy. Psychologist Albert Bandura has defined self-efficacy as one's belief in one's ability to succeed in specific situations or accomplish a task. One's sense of self-efficacy can play a major role in how one approaches goals, tasks, and challenges. The theory of self-efficacy lies at the center of Bandura’s social cognitive theory, which emphasizes the role of observational learning and social experience in the development of personality. Based on the review of literature, It is expected that there is a relationship between self efficacy and flow among young adults and it is expected that there self efficacy and flow is different in males and females. The sample comprised of 40 college students randomly selected from Panjab University, Chandigarh belonging to Statistics Departments. They were of 18-21 years of age. Purposive Random sampling method was used for selection of the sample. Generalized Self Efficacy Scale (GSE) by Schwarzer, R., &  Jerusalem, M.(1995) and  Flow Short Scale by Rheinberg, Vollmeyer, and Engeser (2003; cf. Engeser & Rheinberg, 2008) were used to carry out the investigation. Mean and Standard Deviation(SD) was calculated in addition to correlation and t ratio.

Keywords: Self Efficacy, Flow, Bandura Social Cognitive theory
