We’ve all made the assumptions about a person based on whether they own a cat or a dog. But do these stereotypes have any basis in real life?

The folks at Hunch.com set out to answer that question by polling nearly 200,000 pet owners on whether they have a cat or a dog and then crossing that information with general lifestyle question the respondents also answered.

Read on for the results of the survey.

Dog people are:

15% more likely to be extroverts

36% more likely to use a pop song as a ringtone

11% more likely to say they’d support cloning, but only for animals or pets

18% more likely to consider Paul McCartney their favorite Beatle

9% more likely to think of zoos as happy place

30% more likely to enjoy slapstick humor and impressions

Cat people are:

11% more likely to be introverts

14% more likely to cling to friends at a party

17% more likely to have completed a graduate degree

25% more likely to consider George Harrison their favorite Beatle

10% more likely to send messages on Twitter

21% more likely to enjoy ironic humor and puns

So, as you can see, the poll confirmed the stereotype that dog people tend to be louder, more mainstream and more masculine, wheres cat people are more reserved, intellectual and traditionally feminine.

We here at TheFW conducted our own study and concluded that both dog and cat people love making funny videos of their furry prides of joy and posting them on the Internet for all to see.
