A new study says “dog people” and “cat people” really do have different personalities.

People who said they were dog lovers were found to be more:
   –Energetic and outgoing
–Tend to follow rules closely.

Cat lovers were found to be:
   –More introverted,
–More open-minded
–More sensitive than dog lovers.
–Non-conformists, preferring to be expedient rather than follow the rules.
–And says the study also found that cat lovers scored higher on intelligence than dog lovers.

Researchers at Carroll University in Waukesha, Wisconsin, surveyed 600 college  students about their dog and cat preferences, along with asking questions about their personalities. Other findings:
More people said they were dog lovers than cat lovers: About 60 percent of participants identified themselves as dog people, compared with 11 percent who said they were cat people. (The rest said they liked both animals, or neither animal.)
Dog lovers found companionship to be the most attractive quality in their pet dogs
Cat people liked the affection from their cats.
It’s possible that people may select pets based on their own personality. For example, cats are often seen as independent animals that keep to themselves and are cautious of others. If you have that kind of personality, that makes a cat a better match for you.
