Abstract

Perceptions of personality traits of a man and a woman pictured with a cat, dog, or no animal were examined in 50 college students (M age = 24.77; SD = 9.04). As anticipated, there was an interaction between gender and animal, such that the woman was rated higher when presented alone and the man when presented with the dog. Results suggest personality perceptions differ depending on gender and animal presented.
