Anyone has an emotional support animal? I have two! Their names are name Andros and Vasiliy… A pit lab and a great Dane…. They are my beating hearts, the pit lab recognizes when I have anxiety or just in my introvert mood and the great Dane is just a goofy one all around.
According to pyschologytoday.com:
The “Cat Personality” vs. the “Dog Personality”
It’s not just introversion cat people tended to score differently than dog owners in a variety of traits, some of them positive and some of them less desirable.
Dog people were also 11 percent more conscientious than cat people. Conscientious individuals tend to be disciplined and achievement-oriented; they prefer plans over spontaneity, to-do lists over winging it.
Cat owners, on the other hand, were generally about 12 percent more neurotic than dog owners. Neurotic is a spectrum, and people who score high in it are prone to anxiety, depression, self-doubt, and other negative feelings. But it has an upside: Neurotic people tend to care more about what others think, which can push them to be good team players. They may also be more vigilant about taking care of their physical health.
Kind of went all over the place from my emotional support dogs to introverts having them to explaining all these statistics… I feel emotional I guess. I wanted to pass on some knowledge and hopefully have some people ADOPT animals they are amazing.
