Turns Out There Is a Difference Between Dog People and Cat People
We’ve all made the assumptions about a person based on whether they own a cat or a dog. But do these stereotypes have any basis in real life?
The folks at Hunch.com set out to answer that question by polling nearly 200,000 pet owners on whether they have a cat or a dog and then crossing that information with general lifestyle question the respondents also answered.
Read on for the results of the survey.
Dog people are:
15% more likely to be extroverts
36% more likely to use a pop song as a ringtone
11% more likely to say they’d support cloning, but only for animals or pets
18% more likely to consider Paul McCartney their favorite Beatle
9% more likely to think of zoos as happy place
30% more likely to enjoy slapstick humor and impressions
Cat people are:
11% more likely to be introverts
14% more likely to cling to friends at a party
17% more likely to have completed a graduate degree
25% more likely to consider George Harrison their favorite Beatle
10% more likely to send messages on Twitter
21% more likely to enjoy ironic humor and puns
So, as you can see, the poll confirmed the stereotype that dog people tend to be louder, more mainstream and more masculine, wheres cat people are more reserved, intellectual and traditionally feminine.
