How can dog people be diffrent from cat people?


I’ve just read a very interesting article on CNN.com,I was thinking about it the other day and I thought to my self,why do I hate cats that much?? Why do I love dogs,but at the same time am scared of them?? turns out,your preference(cats or dogs) says something about you.

For example,in a Survey done at the University of Texas at Austin,that wanted to know the characteristics of dog lovers vs. cat lovers. they questioned over 4 thousand people.and turns out,there are common traits attributed to dog lovers that are different from those who love cats.

Dog people tend to be more friendly and social,whilst cat people tend to be more neurotic ,philosophical,and “open”.

Dog people scored significantly higher on extraversion, agreeableness and conscientiousness measures, and lower on neuroticism and openness than cat people, while cat people share traits of neuroticism and being more phylosophical and non traditional.also less open and friendly. as cited by CNN.com

A study conducted  by the university of british Columbia stated that there are some shared traits among pets and their lovers. for example,women with long hair liked Springer spaniels and beagles, which have long ears, and women with short hair liked the short-eared basenjis and huskies.

Personally,I don’t know that much about pets anyways,but I do know that sometimes a person can share some traits with the animals they love,I know my grandmother was extremely patient and can very hardly lose her temper,and physically,she had the looks of a camel.which can be a coincidence or not,I don’t know. but she does have a shared trait with camels,they’re very patient and enduring,but once you anger them,you have only yourself to blame!

here are some facts about dogs and cats

  • About 37 percent of American households have dogs and 32 percent have cats, but the cat population (82 million) is significantly higher than the dog population (72 million).
