The Main Personality Difference Between Dog People And Cat People

There has long been a rift between which pet is better: a cat or a dog. 

While that particular argument may never be settled, thanks to new research, we can finally start to see the differences between a cat person and a dog person.

Are cat people really more independent? Are dog people actually more friendly?

We’re pretty sure that still depends on the person, but one thing we can tell you for sure is that there is a differential between the two.

Thanks to researchers who, in 2017, analyzed the Facebook profiles of both camps, we now know what those differences are.

Loud barks and wagging tails? Outgoing? Friendly? It turns out that dog people really do have more friends — 26 more on average than cat people to be exact. But cat people, don’t lament

As it stands, cat lovers actually get invited to more social gatherings, possibly as a result of their smaller friend groups.

So while you may not have the biggest group of friends, you will have more time to spend with them — that is if you’re not too busy curled up with a cat in your lap and a book in your hand.

And do cat people actually tend to hang out more with other cat people?

According to the findings, yes, they really do. People who adore those little pink feet and noses are more inclined to hang out and befriend people who also love little kitties, too.
