According to a recent study, your choice of dog breed says a lot about your personality.
The study tested 1,000 purebred dog owners on what psychologists call the “big five” personality traits: extraversion, openness, conscientiousness, agreeableness, and neuroticism. Then they separate the dogs into the same categories as the Kennel Club: Gundog, Hound, Pastoral, Terrier, Toy, Utility, and Working. The results show people with certain personality traits leaned toward a certain breed of dog.
