The influence of instructions as a predictor of enjoyment was studied. 36 college students were divided into 4 groups. Group one was given freedom to build their idea of the lego structure. Group two was given a model to copy. Group three was given picture instructions, and group four was given a detailed list of instructions. After completing the task participants were asked to fill out a survey to help determine if their level of instruction was a predictor of their enjoyment of the task. The majority of the people who had the list of instructions or the pictorial instructions predicted a higher level of enjoyment if they would have had the either the model or freedom to build. Whereas the majority of people who had the model or freedom to build, predicted a lower level of enjoyment if they would have had the list of instructions.
