    Default MBTI Pet Preferences

    Do you think that your MBTI has any effect on the kinds of pets you prefer?

    For example, all the cat owners I know seem to be strong J-types.

    Also, all the dog owners I know seem to be strong Ts. If we could type animals, I would venture to say that all dogs are Fs. Related perhaps?

    For the record, I am a dog owner.

    What type are you?

    I think TJs are less likely to have pets. That's all I can be bothered with right now.

    I'm particulraly fond of (okay, I love) my dogs.

    I haven't owned a cat in many years, but when I did, I liked it.

    I doubt there is a correlation between type and the pets you have. Some people like animals, other's don't - Kind of like children.

    That's all I have to add.

    I read some study somewhere wich said that "dog people" are more social and friendy while "cat people" tend to be philosophical and more independent individuals. At least suggesting that extraverts are dog people while introverts are cat people.

    I prefer dogs, but I like cats, too. Like Idioteque, I sort of get that introverts may prefer cats over dogs, and vice versa...maybe.

    Although I would really like a parrot...or some sort of sociable bird.
    I found one at PetsMart yesterday...it absolutely loved me, but it was 500 bucks...sigh.
    I would also like a chameleon...like, I almost bought one yesterday lol.

    Interesting, I always personally thought quite the opposite, that "dog people" are socially aloof and that's why they look to dogs for what they lack in company. I can see "cat people" as more independent, though.

    I like all animals in general, from standard domestic pets to more exotic things. I like everything from dogs and cats, to small rodents like chinchillas and hedgehogs, to reptiles like snakes and lizards. I'd like a more exotic cat some day, a Caracel or a Serval probably. I also would love to have exotic birds - but they are prohibitively expensive at the moment. When/if I get to a place where I can financially handle it - I would like to apply for various licences to own larger exotic pets.

    My brother is an ISTP and cannot STAND animals. In his eyes, pets are useless money sinks.
