Having pets is absolutely amazing! It can cheer you up when you’re feeling sad or come home tired from work. It happens to everyone, but then you open the door and meet that little ball of fur that just emanates love and happiness.
Many animals are more intelligent than we think. – and in any case, I claim that both my dog and my cat realize when I’m happy or sad. That’s how it feels, at least to me. They’re also best friends and seem to understand and care about each other.
The question then is what does it says about yourself if you are a pet owner. I’ve never really thought about that, I’ll admit – but earlier today I encountered research that shows that most people who like cats, in general, are very intelligent.
Dogs and cats are the most common domestic animals in most countries – for example in Sweden.
The question of which of the two animals you prefer is a real classic. I think most people have an answer to that question. However, I myself belong to the few who don’t really know. At home, we have both a dog and a cat – and I could never choose between them.
Recently, however, a study by researcher Denise Guastello reveals the differences between the people who like dogs and the people who like cats, according to Unilad.
Psychoanalyst Steve McKeown, who founded both the MindFixers organization and the well-known McKeown Clinic, says:
– The study was conducted on 600 students. It was found that dog people are more social and extroverted whereas cat lovers are more sensitive and open-minded. It also turned out that those who prefer cats are more neurotic.
