Your Hobbies May Determine Your Success in Science

A new research report has said that your success in science may be determined by the hobbies that you pursue in your daily life.

The study is based on a survey of 225 STEMM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medical) professionals. It was found that high achievers in science had actively pursued hobbies such as arts, photography, writing poetry, wood and metal working. Involvement in such hobbies was seen in scientists who had gone on to produce high-impact papers or win awards or honours such as the Nobel Prize. Scientists who pursued hobbies for a life time were found to score better in filing for copyrights and patents fo their work.

Researchers have concluded that smart, talented professionals are capable of involving in different hobbies or that smart people find more time to indulge in such activities that enhance their learning and conceptual skills. Or it could be that use of skills in one discipline helps them to try it out in other areas which are not related to their profession. The implication of the study is that arts, crafts and design training and practices can help in improving the learning outcomes of science and technology professions
