Sherlock Holmes

I enjoy playing a very important role in people's lives, making it the element of creativity and flair. No wonder, the first question asked when meeting an Englishman, is: 'What are your hobbies? '. Note, do not work, and hobbies, so how we work, in contrast to the enthusiasm, we choose from motives of interest. The word 'hobby' has started in the XVIII century, with the filing of an English writer Laurence Sterne, in 1759 published the novel "Life and Opinions of Tristan Shandy." In the novel He was the first time used the word 'hobby', which was formerly called small peasants working the horse in the sense of 'fad', 'craze'. It may seem strange, but initially seeking hobbies, occupations, which brought to pleasure for the soul, became engaged in women earlier than men have mastered the one hand priceless, and other dubious gift – free time. Bounded by four walls in the long years of patriarchy women entertained themselves as they could, and it is this historical period we owe the appearance of the different techniques of weaving tapestries and embroidery. Collectibles, Games, numismatics and other small pleasures appeared only in the XIX century, when people are experiencing a great desire for freedom, willing to give us something different from each other.

Often the hobby is the antithesis of the main occupation of the person, such as the famous detective Sherlock Holmes in his spare time engaged in the practice of detective playing the violin. The presence of a hobby encouraged by Soviet propaganda as well as people doing nothing in the evening, according to party members, represented some threat Communist activities. At this time, have become popular faleristics, philately, numismatics, the drama and all sorts of sections. Today is no longer a hobby pursuit of positive public opinion and turned into small private property, a piece of the soul, which ceased to expose as a hobby a man can tell a lot more than the details of his biography. Collector, for example, can be characterized desire for orderliness of life, its 'correctness' privacy. Collecting, as a rule, people are doing or are not inclined to be active, or have already tired of it.

So people need to ensure their personal space, develops, becoming more peaceful and harmonious. Moreover, such a person can collect anything: toy soldiers, badges, coins, stamps, etc., in the main hobby – it's enjoyment by the beloved classes, rather than any practical use. People who are prone to extreme forms of entertainment, do not see absolutely no sense to collect antiques, or paper money. Such a person absorbs the life through the senses: smell, sight, touch, and just enjoying the regular portion of adrenaline, he understands that 'lives'. Sofa, Life, TV, work harmful to the extremals in the shower, so he feels the desire diversify their everyday life scuba diving, mountain climbing, surfing, racing or skydiving. These kinds of hobby like cooking or tasting, strange as it may sound, have much in common with the extreme hobbies, as the result of 'presnoty' and monotony of life. We create the next masterpiece of cooking, tasting a variety of tastes we bring to our world faces new sensations. But in this case, as in the previous one, it is important to observe and measure to find the line between pleasure and their own health, guided by the rule: "Entertainment for the sake of life, not life for the sake of entertainment."
