Maybe, but I found it an unfair assumption that because I enjoy solitary hobbies, I'm not a team player in my work. I told them that too, and they seemed quite surprised that I would stand up for myself.
I am part of a team at work. That's why I'd like to relax by myself in my free time. The fact that they pretty much at the start of the interview told me I was antisocial judging from nothing but my hobbies rubbed me the wrong way.

I guess it worked out alright though, I couldn't work with somebody that would make rash assumptions.
