There seems no end to the tiff that goes on between a dog lover and a cat lover. A lot of times, we have faced the question- are you a dog person or a cat person? And if you don’t concur over the choice of the pet then the dog-cat war is bound to happen.
A dog owner always talks about the loyalty of his pet while a cat owner loves how his pet snuggles and makes him feel cosy. This subjective topic sees no end as the respective owners always come up with justified points. The new study done by Steve McKeown has now quelled this debate.
Steve McKeown is a psychoanalyst and founder of MindFixers also the owner of The McKeown Clinic.
A study that included 600 college students found that dog people may be more social and outgoing. On the other hand, the cat people are far more sensitive and open-minded. It also noted that cat owners were no more neurotic than dog owners.
Cat people tend to be non-conformist, somebody who stand up for what they believe in despite what anyone thinks which in many ways and perhaps mirrors the independence for which cats are renowned. Cat people also score higher on intelligence tests and hence are more educated!
Cat people are likely to have more university degrees than dog owners. Educated people tend to work longer hours and opt for pets that compliment their personal circumstances and lifestyle.
Well, I see cats and their owners, smirk!
