Anyone have interests and hobbies that are considered strange by your peers?

For example, I'm a 20 year old female, and I like all the normal 20-year-old stuff (like surfing, travelling etc) but I also like:

- Reading about torture throughout history
- Singing opera/musicals (I performed as Christine in a Phantom of the Opera performance...just locally, but people who know me thought that was amusing)
- Classical music
- Reading about diseases/parasites/worms
- Learning languages as a hobby
- Fencing...at least in high school. :crazy: I'm such a nerd.

What about you! What're your hobbies that make people go "wtf? LOL"

Classical music is considered bizarre? Well, I play classical guitar and I happen to really love classical, romantic, and baroque music :mellow:

Just being me is a hobby in itself.

I used to do 24-hour motorcycle rides. My personal record is just under 1400 miles. I've also been involved with fencing, MMA, poetry slams, various protest groups, writing and recording music, and a lot of home projects I probably shouldn't have taken on.

My ENTP g/f used to make chain mail (like medieval armor). That was before she started going to random AA and Al-Anon meetings just as an observer. Lately she's been getting into canning and knitting. Oh, she's a bull-fighter too.

She sounds cool.

I tell stories and deconstruct myths. Read about anything and everything. Do far too much roleplaying for a middle aged woman (no, not LARP, that's a step too far). Have done all sorts over the years. Met my husband at a fencing class......

Oh yeah! Motorcycles. I used to love to take long highway rides...until I had to sell her. :-/ Oh and another for me...dog sledding. Wow. The ride and the dogs are incredible. Gotta do it again sometime...

Armor and bullfighting? Your g/f sounds :cool:

I like studying sociopaths since i find them fascinating.
I have a big interest in business, and am always open to non-conventional ways to get ahead.

I get that. I have a similar situation where many of my friends (ESxPs and ESTJs) consider almost everything I do unusual. "You read fanfiction? Say what?" It's all good, though. Your hobbies don't seem particularly odd, either.

Anywho, here are some things people tease me/make comments about:

- Watching cartoons
- Listening to non-mainstream music (music in foreign languages, instrumental, etc.)
- Typology to the extent that I take it
- Reading and writing fanfiction
- Playing video games (girls don't play video games, pshaw)
- Educating myself on random topics via the interwebs ("Why do you know so much about sex? o_O")

My bizzare hobbies can be tracked by bizzaire google searches i make.

many times i did find internet insufficient for the information i am looking for but it does exist in rare corners.
So that's is quite bizarre i often tend to look for things people normally dont.

My peers sometimes perceive me as nerdish. I have fun in things which is so booooring to my friends - i mean technical stuff.

And i dont have fun in many things which people generally enjoy.

Sometimes i wonder there is some bizarre in my wiring. But the best part is i love the way i am. And i feel quite lucky and thank whatever god or parents for being the way i am.
