How are dog people and cat people different?

"A team of researchers led by psychologist Sam Gosling at the University of Texas at Austin wanted to find out. They posted a questionnaire online as part of a larger study about personality called the Gosling-Potter Internet Personality Project.

About 4,500 participants answered questions that measured their personality inclinations in five areas: openness, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness, and neuroticism. These five dimensions have been shown in previous research to encompass most personality traits. They also indicated whether they considered themselves cat people, dog people, both or neither."

Thanks for the article. I consider myself more a cat person because I have a cat. I only had one childhood pet dog, and he kept bitting my litttle sister.My parent actually kept my sister ,....and we had give up Tiny (I named him). He went to a great home though. That is what is most important.
Thanks again!
