"After surveying 600 college students, researchers concluded what most of us already knew: Dog people and cat people are very different.

"'It makes sense that a dog person is going to be more lively, because they're going to want to be out there, outside, talking to people, bringing their dog,' said study researcher Denise Guastello, an associate professor of psychology at Carroll University in Waukesha, Wisc., who presented the findings at the annual Association for Psychological Science meeting.

"A cat lover, on the other hand, may be 'more introverted, and sensitive, maybe you’re more at home reading a book, and your cat doesn’t need to go outside for a walk.'"

I like both cats and dogs. Does that mean that I'm both smart and outgoing? :laughing:

Dog person. And I'm very outgoing. I've been told "You beam with confidence when you enter the room". Odd point to make here--my dog is more like a cat. He doesn't go for walks and he's litter box trained. So--if i have dog that acts like a cat...what am I?

I like dogs and cats, but I guess I am more of a cat person because they are easier to care for.  I also have a dog allergy.  For some reason, cat hair doesn't bother me.

There are 7 billion people in the world. They could only reach 600 college students.

Funding is really going down hill.

As I grew up I had several dogs an a couple cats I have none at present.  

I too did a survey but I had no funding at all so I asked a college student I know.

He said I was smarter for not having either one now. 

Being an introvert I thought 1 was enough to ask.

One Siberian Husky, 4 low content wolfdogs and one Bullmastiff/Am Bulldog cross.  They won't let me have a cat.

 

I'm smart enough to train my dogs and outgoing enough to know cats don't ride well in cars (in most cases)

 

I have had cats in the past...but I tend to like the few that act like a dog.  

 

Do horses count?

Interesting . . . the study sample was 600 college students . . . is it statistically likely that there is anyone intelligent in the sample? I have 4 cats, but I have only been a 'cat person' late in life, and my intelligence has degraded, not sure what to make of that anecdotal evidence.

well, omega you bring up a good point-but the question is, was it 600 traditional college students or 600 non-traditional? traditional college students usually live on campus and therefore dont have pets. Which means theyre going off of past pet ownership, and it maynot be the most accurate statistic. If its non-traditional students, well most of them live off campus and have jobs and may indeed be current pet owners leading to a more accurate result.

I currently have one dog, Mollie, a mystery mutt who is spoiled rotten. I have had birds, cats, rabbits (house broken), guinea pigs, a pet rat and of course other dogs before Mollie. I like both cats and dogs, but I got tired of all the work needed for cats. Cleaning litter boxes is no fun. Dogs, you just let outside. No smell and minimal fuss.  The only thing with dogs is they are always on the wrong side of the door. I am an introvert.
