- Sometimes your hobbies can suit several occupations. For instance, the fact that you can sit patiently and calmly (fishing) or perhaps prefer more active and open-air pursuits (climbing) may influence you in your favor towards one job rather than another. However, this tendency is not infallible, and should only be a guide. The purpose of listing hobbies is to indicate other occupations of which you may not be aware. These lists are continuously updated.
