It is a common misconception that our level of intelligence is determined at the time of our birth and we can’t do anything about it. We have to live with it – smart or dumb. But science has proven that it is not true – there are numerous ways to enhance our intelligence and our hobbies play a vital role in it. Hobbies are something we do on a regular basis, something we enjoy, and something which help us unwind.
