When I recently learned that a study had found that 'cat people' were smarter than 'dog people', I'd be lying if I didn't say I chortled. While I love dogs, I'm known for my passionate love of all things feline. I'll also take any excuse to have my ego stroked, and if loving cats means that I am some sort of evil super genius, I'll take that and run with it -- gladly.
Sadly, upon closer inspection, the 'study' in question just barely holds up. It only polled 600 college students and, based on that data, determined that dog people were more extroverted and that cat people were more introverted. Their argument for both? Cats like to stay inside, so people who own them must also like to stay inside. Dogs, on the other hand, enjoy the out of doors -- so the people who own dogs must also feel the same way. I'm not sure any of that follows, really.
