23. How cats and dogs differ!
Beatrice’s research found that “dog people scored significantly higher than cat people on competitiveness, and a characteristic called Social Dominance Orientation. This is essentially a preference for hierarchy and the belief that some groups of people should dominate other groups of people.”
The researchers concluded that “people prefer pets that complement their own personalities, so someone more inclined towards characteristics related to social dominance should prefer a more submissive pet, like dogs.”
In the meantime, “Those who are not so attached to hierarchies and ranking highly within them may be more inclined to like cats, who we all know defer to no one,” Beatrice concluded.
Molly De Voss, a certified feline behaviourist, says that dog people “tend to be more “outdoorsy” than cat people,” but she added: “that said, I like to hike—with my cat, of course.”
Furthermore, “more women tend to own cats than men—partly because cats are seen as feminine and dogs more masculine; and partly because cats gravitate to women more because their voices are in a megahertz range similar to their meows.” Molly also noticed stronger feelings about felines since “more people (usually men) really dislike cats than they do dogs.”
“I think that may limit a single woman’s opportunities in the dating pool—especially if she has multiple cats. However, I have several male cat-owning clients who are neither gay nor neurotic, so obviously, there’s no 100% stereotype that fits all,” Molly concluded.
25. Cats are really social ‘animals’

26. Another perspective!

28. Well, it’s better to admit the truth you know!
29. How could do?
A study conducted by the psychologist Samuel D. Gosling from the University of Texas in Austin, in which 4,565 people were asked whether they were dog people, cat people, neither, or both, tried to answer these questions.
Gosling concluded: “There is a widely held cultural belief that the pet species—dog or cat—with which a person has the strongest affinity says something about the individual’s personality, and this research suggests there are significant differences on major personality traits between dog people and cat people.”
The research showed that dog people were usually 15% more extroverted, 13% more agreeable, and 11% more diligent than cat people. It also showed that cat people were 11% more open-minded.
