London, May 16 (ANI): One in five men hates doing DIY, according to a new study.
Despite traditionally being seen as a man”s job, the fear of failure puts off two out of five men, while a similar number claimed they don’t have enough time.
In the poll of 1,000 adults, a third said DIY was too time-consuming and one in five said they didn”t do it because they had no idea what they were doing. Another 21 per cent admitted they were simply too lazy.
“There was a time when almost every man would love nothing more than heading down to his shed to make something, or indulge in a spot of DIY around the home. But it seems this is no longer the case as a large number of men now see it as a chore rather than a hobby,” the Daily Mail quoted Chris Tidy, DIY expert for Bosch, as saying.
Of those who like to indulge in DIY, 45 per cent said it filled them with pride. A further 26 per cent used it to express their creativity.
More than a quarter liked the feeling they got after creating something unique.
On the other hand, it was found that one in four women actually enjoy a spot of handiwork around the home. (ANI)
