可爱的小宠物,是人们生活中的亲密伙伴,给我们带来了无限欢乐。可在心理学家看来,喜欢什么样的宠物,还能很好地反映主人的性格。

In the war of the pets, dogs have won the latest battle - or at least their owners have.

在宠物大战中,最近夺冠的是狗——或者说至少是狗主人胜出了。

Research discovered not only are dogs the most popular animal of choice to have in the home - dog owners are hardworking early risers, and most likely to be married.

与此同时,养猫的人容易害羞、单身、邋遢,养兔子的人比较有创造力,也比较神经大条。

Elsewhere, rabbit and dog owners said they were early risers, while cat lovers claimed to be night owls. The poll was conducted by UK pet insurer Petplan to celebrate the launch of its Find a Pet website.

另外,养兔子和养狗的人说自己是早起者,而养猫的人声称自己是夜猫子。英国宠物保险公司Petplan组织了这次调查问卷,来庆祝它的网站“Find a Pet”的开张。

The most popular pet among the respondents was a dog, at 77 per cent. Cats owners made up 21 per cent of the respondents, while only 2 per cent owned rabbits.

Among cat lovers, those who owned Persian cats were the most laid back, but people with Tortoise Shells were the most shy.

Elsewhere, dogs were most likely to be owned by married men who live in the countryside, while single females in their twenties owned the most cats.
