Comparison of cat and dog people in intelligence and sociability
Nothing like a good cat people vs. dog people debate to kick off the morning right!
Denise Guastello, a researcher from Carroll University in Wisconsin, presented the findings of a study conducted on 600 college students that revealed cat people scored higher in the area of intelligence, while dog people preferred a good frolic in the park with their friends.
“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,” Guastello said. “Whereas, if you’re 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.”
The team admits the findings might not hold for other age groups, but it is fuel for the fire of this ongoing cultural conflict.
