Are You a Dog Person, a Cat Person, or Both?

We all have our preferences and this goes out to choosing our home buddies, our pets! A new study suggests that your environment, your background, personality and stage of life helps identify whether you are more likely a dog person, a cat person, or both!

In a recent study from the University of Texas at Austin, 46 percent of respondents described themselves as "dog people," and just 12 percent were self-described "cat people." Of the remaining respondents, 28 percent described themselves as lovers of both dogs and cats, while 15 percent said that they were neither.

What really makes a cat person, and what categorizes as a dog person? Does owning both makes a difference?

The results found that people who say that they are dog people tend to have more extroverted, agreeable, and conscientious personalities than those who consider themselves cat people. 

The analysis also revealed that while respondents who described themselves as cat people tended to be more neurotic than dog people, they also tended to be more open to experiencing new things.
