Your Pet and Your Personality

Researcher Sam Gosling, Ph.D. discusses a new study from the University of Texas at Austin that confirms what most of us have suspected all along - dog lovers rule. But don't believe me, just listen to the statement made at 1:43 and the item shown directly thereafter. Gosling then struggles to accentuate the positive on behalf of cat lovers. It's the best video ever made. *video may take three secs or so to load

  1. We have conducted our own study and discovered that dogs rule and cats should be chased up trees.

  3. We took a democratic vote and it turned out dogs=4; cat=1. This is what we refer to as a scientific study.

  6. I'm basically a dog person. But I also enjoy cats. And horses. And birds. And elephants. And raccoons. And...well, you get the picture.

  13. My humans claim that they're both dog and cat people. I know they're neurotic. I'm going to have to consider the data a little more.
