What is a hobby? Well, it is an activity that you enjoy engaging into during your past time.
Now, I have already established that, besides blogging, I also write creative literature. I have also established that I love to read and watch movies. Sometime during the Blogtober challenge, I made a point to say that music is an important factor in my life.
I am a self-proclaimed artist. I can draw, paint, build, and create. Basically, any handy job will make me happy.
I will not discuss that. It is a blog feature so it will be redundant of me to talk about a hobby that I know will show up here eventually.
So, I am discussing a hobby of mine that will not be featured here anymore or as frequent as it should.
I like to keep quiet.
The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator is a personality test that categorizes your personality into four categories. Since my very young years, my test results were always consistent. I was an ENFP. It means
My percentages were always a huge contrast from their counterparts. I am approximately 80% an extrovert than an introvert. Then, I am basing 76% of my decisions on intuition and so on.
As I grew older, I was learning to adapt to do both sides of the coin for some reason. Not only in my MBTI but also in my other traits. I am a born pessimist but I am a learned optimist, for example.
What does this have to do with my hobby?
I took a recent personality test and found out that I am 56% an extrovert among other changes in my usual scores. I was not surprised.
Ever since I graduated from the uni, I have developed the habit of finding happiness in silence.
I can sit down on a park and just watch people. I can listen to a person talk and talk without interruption. I like to nod while I am listening. I can sit and just look. I like doing all those things.
I like to think of what other people might be thinking or doing while I watch them. I like to observe their appearance and mannerisms and make hypotheses of what they are. I feel like Sherlock Holmes when I do that.
I like to listen to people. The opinions and stories of others are so interesting to me. I can learn something. There is also that happiness that I feel whenever that I think of another person taking the time to actually talk to me.
I like doing nothing. It might sound that I am lazy. I admit that I am. I do nothing not because I want to escape doing something. I like to sit in silence because I find peace in silence. I find clarity in searching through my own thoughts.
So, there. I am a born extrovert and an adaptive introvert. I keep quiet at times and I like it.
Are you an introvert or an extrovert? What hobbies do you have?
