Mark Twain said there are two kinds of people in the world. One kind separates people into two kinds of people, and the other kind doesn’t.
I suppose I’m the kind that separates people into two kinds of people, and in the animal world, I see that as the difference between the kinds of people who own and love dogs and the kind of people who own and love cats.
If you see those same distinctions in those two owners, psychologists who research such things would agree with you.
It appears cat owners are slightly more introverted than the average person, and dog owners are slightly more extroverted.
The reasons why could relate to all kinds of things, including how people make choices, and the nature of these two types of pets, but I suppose there are also exceptions to every rule.
A friend of mine who thought that I might like her cat, made the case that her cat acts just like a dog.
