Hobbies are those activities that you enjoy doing usually during your downtime. Often, when we meet others, one of the first question that is asked is “What is your favorite hobby?” This question serves to help people get to know one another better. That is because hobbies are an indication of a person’s personality traits. For example, if a individual listed painting as a hobby, you could infer that they are artistic, whereas if a person said that they enjoy stock car racing, it may be safe to assume that they have an adventurous side. Many people use hobbies as a relaxing way to escape from work, while other people view hobbies as a passionate endeavor. Some of the most common and popular hobbies include: reading, fishing, gardening, sewing, crafts, dancing, and team sports.
