Here are the Hobbies You’ll Love, Based on Your Enneagram Type
With your strong sense of morality, you feel best when your time is invested in projects that can make a positive difference in the world on a small or large scale. Activities like volunteering (locally or overseas), fundraising, and tutoring sustain your interest.
You get the warm fuzzies by making others happy. It’s common to spot you cooking, baking, volunteering, counseling, gardening, or simply being in touch with friends. You also love spending time with animals and are most likely a self-proclaimed cat or dog parent. Oh, and let’s not forget babysitting!
You’ve got the talent to flaunt and looks to serve (seriously). It’s easy to spot you immersed in competitive sports, hashing out business ideas, singing, dancing, modelling, and the greatest: social media. While rank and status are important, you’re also fantastic at dishing out useful advice and suggestions to your friends and family.
For you, there’s no better way to spend your free time than in creative self-expression! You’ll find yourself thrift-store shopping, putting stories down on paper, painting, film-making, designing, journaling, acting, taking photos, playing an instrument, or composing music. The bottom line? Do or make something new when the mood strikes you. Creation over consumption. It’s more than a tagline—it’s a lifestyle.
You thoroughly enjoy provoking and stimulating your mind. Puzzles, board games, card games, reading non-fiction, playing trivia, and working extensively with computers bring a (rare) smile to your face. After all, achieving mastery is your cup of tea. You may also enjoy hiking, solo sports, and visiting museums.
Service above self is your way to roll. You enjoy volunteering, being a part of a non-profit organization or society, planning, making lists, and chilling out with close friends. Your room is a haven where you can safely explore the world through reading, writing, playing music, or even creating artwork.
Variety is your bread of life (no joke). You love to venture out and try new foods, sports, sights, and sounds. You’re proudly multi-talented and excel in improv, comedy, or podcasting. In your mind the best way to learn a new skill is to plunge headfirst into it—full steam ahead! You’re also a sucker for adrenaline: roller coasters, skydiving, and racing are all tantalizing prospects to you.
Armed with a sense of inner strength and high stamina, your interests lie in debating, playing video games, public speaking, hosting events, setting new goals, thrill-seeking, and exercising. You might also be into weight-lifting, rock climbing, and mountain biking. By the way, did someone say spicy wings? Bring it on.
You’re seeking harmony and balance. Meditation, practicing spirituality, listening to calming tunes, hanging around with animals, and going on long nature walks are right up your alley. You also enjoy relaxing in cozy coffee shops with a group of friends. If napping can be considered a “hobby”, then it’s definitely on your list as well (wink).
Why take up a hobby?
Having a variety of hobbies is good for both your body and mind! You’ll reduce your susceptibility to stress and increase your physical and mental well-being overall. Plus, positivity spreads like wildfire. After all, sunshine and smiles are always in style.
