Can you still remember the time when you had the imagination of unlimited possibilities? Where you could be any one, do anything and accomplish everything? Can you remember how you and your friends stir each other’s imagination to even greater possibilities as you subdue the limited realities to your own play? The power and energy of that creativity were in essence your weapon against the limitation of the mundane and ordinary. Edward S Bordin (1990) theorised that childhood experiences that is rooted in the urge to play are the basis to the relation between personality and work. Role-playing games of children are an intrinsically satisfying activity that gives the individual a sense of wholeness and joy. This also functions as a guidance mechanism that influences personality development and its relation to career choice. However when this catalyst of creativity and innovation that we find in play is severed from work, work changes from self-satisfying activities to self-alienating compulsions that amount to drudgery, enforced effort and a loss of unlimited creativity and energy.
