Autotelic is something that is an end to itself, an activity done for the enjoyment itself.
Exotelic is something that is done to receive an external reward.
Many things can honestly be both. In making beautiful things, we are allowed to use the wisdom of our experience, decision making, vision, and aesthetics to create something that didn’t exist before. We can also choose to share what we make in hope of finding acceptance, validation, profit, or applause… or we can choose to share what we make just for the simple joy of sharing.
