So now it’s conclusive: cat people are OFFICIALLY smarter than dog people

We always had our suspicions, but now, thanks to the good folk at Carroll University in Wisconsin, it’s been confirmed by science: cat owners are officially smarter than their dog loving peers. Yes, according to Live Science ‘cat lovers scored higher than dog lovers on measures such as introversion, open-mindedness and a term used far too loosely in society, sensitivity’. Sensitivity!

Well, it does make sense. I mean, on the one hand you have your soft and independent, on the other your slightly frazzled and needy.

But don’t take our word for it. Says Denise Guastello, an associate professor of psychology at Carroll University: ‘It makes sense that a dog person is going to be more lively, because they’re going to want to be out there, outside, talking to people, bringing their dog. Whereas, if you’re more introverted, and sensitive, maybe you’re more at home reading a book, and your cat doesn’t need to go outside for a walk’.

That take, dog lovers!
