Conscious physical activity of person is a topic of study many detailed scientific disciplines. The purpose of this study is a general review model for possibility of action. Model based on praxeology criteria and concerns external actions (requiring muscle work). Defined motives underlie each physical work includes mental elements (internal operations). Based on tens tests we have ascertained that near 10% persons (among athletes and no athletes) were maximum motivated to make all motor tasks that required precision of action (e.g. to hit the basket from distance with a fixed number of balls). Tasks put into practice before, after warm up and after multiple, intensive physical exercises. The results of recommended tests: physical fitness, motor competence etc. do not take into consideration motivation factor. Forecasting based on success in suitable activity (e.g. during sport fight) is burdened high error. Model of estimate for possibility of action of person takes into consideration: a) flexible feasibility measurement (motor simulation of the elements in suitable activity and level of motivation for this activity), b) estimation of situational feasibility, c) decision if subject has full possibility of action, d) correction of the level ”a” & “b”.

Key words: flexible feasibility, situational feasibility, the full (complete) possibility of action
