The German word funktionslust refers to the pleasure of doing what one is made to do, or what one does best, as the pleasure of a bird flying, for example, or a cheetah running or a monkey swinging branch to branch.

What is your funktionslust? What pleases you in itself and as a thing that is essentially a part of who you are?

Teaching, when it goes well, like it just did!

Farting around with statistical analyses.

Oddly, simple baking, like brownies or muffins gives me a similar feeling in the moment even though I don't conceptualize it as a part of me in some important way.
