Facebook’s researchers used object recognition technology — the kind, they note, that helps blind people “see” websites — to scan users’ photos for pet preferences and reference them against tendencies in entertainment, mood, and connections.
Their findings confirmed the stereotypes: Like their beloved Golden Retrievers, “dog people” are more emotional, extroverted and more likely to feel #blessed than their cat-loving counterparts. Team Fido has more Facebook friends, but Team Whiskers gets invited to more events, despite being more aloof.
Findings got your dander up? Remember that your personality is a complex rainbow of preferences and some people aren’t dog or cat people, but something much less oversimplified. Like screaming hairy armadillo people.
