Study: “I Like Dogs” not a personality

AUSTIN—A study recently published in UT’s undergraduate research journal concluded that a personality based solely in the enjoyment of dogs the is actually indicative of no personality at all. “Saying phrases such as ‘We literally did nothing to deserve dogs’ out loud in social settings does nothing to develop a meaningful dialogue with others,” said Jessica Taweel, a specialist in interpersonal communication who worked on the project for months. “Those that claim to like dogs more than other people are often reported as the least engaging person in a group.” Researchers concluded that this population can function quite normally in society, as long as they don’t need to hold someone’s attention for more than five minutes.
