Ask anyone you know if they are a cat person or a dog person, I bet you will have a quick answer! It's like vanilla vs chocolate.
A study conducted at Ball State University showed that people believe that their own personalities are similar to those of the pets they keep. Cat owners saw themselves as being more independent while dog owners described themselves as being friendly.
Those who define themselves as "dog people" are more extroverted, more agreeable and more conscientious than self-described "cat people." Those who love felines, though, were found to be less traditional, more creative and more neurotic.
According to a scientific survey of pet ownership, people with cats are more likely to have university degrees than those with dogs.
Researchers at the University of Bristol say that the superior intelligence of cat owners is unlikely to be caused by their exposure to the famously cunning and selfish pets.
Rather, more educated people tend to work longer hours and choose a pet to fit their lifestyles. Unlike dogs, cats require no walking and can manage with little human company.
So people, are you more cat or dog?
