Survey: Dog Lovers More Outgoing, Cat Lovers Smarter

20 posts in this topic

"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.
