I don't think a person's preference in pets makes them more or less intelligent than the next person. I do think people who have cats probably have to be more patient people because cats seem more likely to push boundaries and can be harder to train.
I also don't think a person's preference has any (real) implications regarding intelligence. I know there has been speculation but I don't think it has much merit.
I do think certain personality traits would be more frequently associated with cat/dog people, though.

When you read another person's hub, do you typically read the entire article?I recently published a hub which I intended to be humorous. The humor was in the final sentence in which the real meaning of the hub was changed; a twist, you might call it. Judging from the lack of response, I...

Do you know someone who is smarter than you are, and how do you feel about that person?EG:- You find yourself saying things like "She thinks she knows everything". In your head you hear the corollary "She DOES know everything and that is why she is so annoying."
