The Truth About Cat People and Dog People!


Are
you a cat or dog person? Most people align themselves with one of these animals
and research shows that your preference can reveal a little about your
personality! 62 percent of U.S. households own a pet, dogs being the most
popular at 39 percent, but cats are a close second at 33 percent.
  These pets are so common that if you do not
own one, chances are someone you know does.
 

Studies show that parents with young children are more likely to own a dog that the kids can take outside and play with, while older couples and
single are more likely to have lower maintenance pets like cats.
  Living space is another factor in what kind
of pet we own. However, people really try and match their personalities to their pet.
  It is found that dog
people tend to be more extroverted, agreeable and conscientious, while self
proclaimed cat people tend to be more creative and adventurous but more prone
to anxiety.
  


There is even a link between
our pets and the way we vote.
 A 2008
Gallup survey of 2,000 Americans found that 33 percent of dog owners identified
themselves as Republicans while only 28 percent of cat owners leaned to the
right.
  Other surveys have found the
split more even.
 Cat people and dog people are equally likely to have a four year college degree, but cat lovers
are 17 percent more likely to have a graduate degree.
 There are many differences between the two
sides, but there are also many similarities.
