Spanish term or phrase: ociotipo
Conference details: "el primer estudio Europeo de Ociotipos, que rompe el tópico de que los españoles son los europeos más partidarios de ocio". (Leisure styles?)
jo
maybe "leisure lifestyles"?
Explanation:
That's what it sounds like to me, in the context it's in. These are university courses on the subject.

Leisure participation and leisure lifestyles: the debates surrounding the concept of leisure lifestyles. Leisure, consumer culture and postmodernity (http://www.shu.ac.uk/virtual_campus/courses/lfm/sportlev3/le...

A broad general overview of the recreation and leisure movement followed by a specific examination of changing leisure lifestyles and their impact on the individual's choice of recreation and leisure patterns. Also examine the impact that the choice of leisure lifestyles has on other aspects of the individual's life as well as the negative effects of restrictive or inadequate leisure involvement. (http://www.csus.edu/Scripts/asp/catalog/catcour.asp?course=R...

Just an idea... :-)

leisure types / persons of leisure


Explanation:
The context (los europeos) suggests that "tipos," refers to people, not things. The primary meaning of "tipo" is "guy," as in "he's not my type."

leisurely type, also called “leisurely personality type.”


Explanation:
Here are a few sample texts:

http://www.geocities.com/ptypes/passive-aggressive.html

“Dr. John M. Oldham has defined the Leisurely personality style. The following seven characteristic traits and behaviors are listed in his The New Personality Self-Portrait.”


http://prtr-13.ucsc.edu/~moonbase/personality/leisurely.html

“Leisurely: The basic trait of this type is a pattern of passive resistance
to demands for adequate social and occupational performance.
Often thought of as unreliable. They are prone to suffer from passive-aggressive disorder.”
