There are three important purposes to the 14 available hobbies:
  • Getting a 20% bonus chance of getting hired if a hobby matching the job is found with 1.0% or above proficiency;
  • Unlocking new jobs at 25.0%, 50.0 and 99.0% proficiency, respectively;
  • Acquiring titles when the hobby exceeds 50.0% which provides a tenant with more income and wealth (the wealthiest tenant when rent is due is the one paying it, so it won't always be the head of the household).

Age ranges have a different set of titles, with Adult having the most. Only a child tenant can get all hobbies in the game, and only if they make it within their lifespan (15 years counting from child). Your starting tenant starts at age 5 and cannot get the child titles.

Depending on device/game version, the first tenant may lose hobbies, titles and stats in a New Game+.

A tenant acquires a hobby by using furniture that encourages it (this becomes their specialization) or when you use a Change Hobby item. Current specialization proficiency slowly increases with furniture use (0.3% to 0.5% per use regardless of furniture). If other hobbies already exceed milestones, tenants will still unlock jobs after using any furniture once (all in one go).

Only the first hobby to be discovered by a tenant counts towards the total amount of hobbies you've unlocked under Building Info; a tenant changing hobbies or discovering a new one while already specialized in one will not unlock it.
