Haha that's amazing.

To be honest, maybe the person is gambling that whoever is reading the CVs will appreciate that it's something different to the usual "I like to read and play sports and hang out with friends"

Quantum physics, bareknuckle fighting, crochet, coprophagia, artistic nude modelling and Ukrainian folk music.

Nice ;-)

Vinyl record collecting, downloading hardcore porn, consuming fermented apple juice, pegging, urolagnia and flower arranging.

When I'm reading CVs I've never been positively influenced by someones interests, only negatively. I saw one once that had interests as train spotting and morris dancing. That went in the bin.

I'd recommend not putting any interests down.

Are you a recruiter? I say this as I am looking for a job at the moment. :)

Let's be honest... it shows that the person is a driven individual who sees things through and overcomes difficult challenges and obstacles put in their path.

I'd hire them :lol:

I wouldn't.

The sort of person that will brag about beating diablo on inferno level are the sort of person that will take time off every time a wow expansion hits, and will constantly come into work like a zombie after staying up till 3am playing games.

This is the problem with putting stuff like that on a CV, the people that understand it will know all the negatives about your hobby, and will project them onto you. When I hear about hardcore diablo players I just think poor hygiene, lack of social skills, and unhealthy levels of addiction.

I have recruited for a national telecoms company and personal interests mean nothing these day's. It is all about your exprience and if the discussions pop up abou what you do in you spare time then discuss

I've always just considered it something to put on a CV if you can't flesh it out with enough things that are relevant to the job.

This is a problem? :(
