Nu är det bevisat – sådan husse sådan hund

Brittiska forskare har kommit fram till att ordspråket sådan husse sådan hund, stämmer väl in på det verkliga livet.

Med hjälp av personens hund kan man avslöja mycket om personen genom att titta på val av hundens ras, utseende och temperament.

Sociologiska undersökningar avslöjar att mindre attraktiva ungdomar brukar skaffa sig aggressiva hundar, för det mesta ”kamphundar”. Vackra personer skaffar sig ofta mindre hundar som dvärghundar och sällskapshundar. Man menar att människan väljer en hund, som återspeglar hennes egna egenskaper. Hunden är således själens spegel.

    Mindre attraktiva ungdomar – aggressiva hundar – ”kamphundar” ! ?

    Terriers: No personality traits stood out in the survey among people who owned terriers, such as the Staffordshire bull or the Scottie dog.

    Working dogs: Just like terrier owners, those who owned working dogs, such as Dobermans or schnauzers, had no standout personality traits.

    Led by psychologist Dr. Lance Workman, the team surveyed 1,000 dog owners through an online questionnaire designed to test the so-called ”Big Five” personality traits: conscientiousness, intelligence and creativity, emotional stability, extroversion and agreeableness.

    What your dog’s breed says about your personality:
    Sporting dogs: People who owned sporting dogs, such as Labrador retrievers and cocker spaniels, appeared more agreeable and conscientious in the survey.

    Herding dogs: People who owned herding dogs, such as German shepherds or sheepdogs, were more extroverted.

    Hound dogs: People who owned hound dogs, such as greyhounds and beagles, were more emotionally stable.

    Toy dogs: People who owned toy dogs, such as Chihuahuas or Yorkshire terriers, were more agreeable, more conscientious and more open to new experiences.

    Non-sporting dogs: People who owned utility dogs, such as English bulldogs, Shar-Peis and Chow Chows, were more conscientious and extroverted.

    Terriers: No personality traits stood out in the survey among people who owned terriers, such as the Staffordshire bull or the Scottie dog.

    Working dogs: Just like terrier owners, those who owned working dogs, such as Dobermans or schnauzers, had no standout personality traits.

    The findings and conclusions of studies presented at medical meetings should be viewed as preliminary until published in a peer-reviewed journal.

    The tests also showed that overall the dog owners were nicer or ”more agreeable” than the general population, the only major personality difference the study found.

    The University of California San Diego psychologist confirmed this curiosity in 2004, for people who choose purebred dogs. The researchers collected 45 pictures of dogs and their owners, taken separately with differing backgrounds, and had 28 undergrad judges try to match the owners with their real dogs based on resemblance. Out of 25 pedigreed breeds there were 16 strong matches with their owners – who looked strikingly like their dogs! Among the mutts, resemblance to their owners was not correlated.

    Once the researchers had paired the randomized photographs, the high incidence of resemblance between purebreds and their owners led the psychologists to conclude that it’s the owner’s fault – people choosing a purebred dog tend to choose the dog that most resembles themselves.

    Researchers found that members of the public could predict which breed of dog a person would own almost twice as accurately as they should be able to, just by looking at a photograph of their owners.

    Volunteers rightly connected poodles, Labradors and Staffordshire bull terriers with their masters.

    There were a number of physical reasons why owners looks suggested which dog they would have, including what clothes they wore and their build, said Dr Lance Workman, from Bath Spa University.

    The tests also showed that overall the dog owners were nicer or ”more agreeable” than the general population, the only major personality difference the study found.

    Psychologists asked 70 people to match 41 dog owners, found through the Kennel Club, to their breeds.

    They were correct between 50 and 60 per cent of the time, when chance suggested that they should have a success rate of around 33 per cent.

    The volunteers were shown full-length pictures of the owners, mainly photographed in their own homes.

    The team behind the study decided to look at Staffordshire bull terriers because the breed has had a lot of negative publicity in recent years, while they were interested to discover if poodles attracted more ”sophisticated” owners and Labradors were considered to be a ”neutral” breed. eed.
