This may seem random, but I'm curious to see if the kind of animals we prefer has to do with our personality types to an extent. Obviously there will be some variety due to our experiences with them, but I'd like to know your preferences as a whole or at least what draws you to them. I'm also an animal fanatic and we were missing an animal related post. :P
I personally love anything that is either beautiful or really cute(favorite). I love things that appeal to the senses, especially when it's soft or has an odd sensation. My favorite is definately cats, because they're clean over-all, they can take care of themselves fairly well, which fits into my schedule, and they're soft and comforting. My second favorite is tied between horses and birds. I love birds because of the way they look and feel, so they tend to amaze me. I also love bunnies. I find that I tend to go for things which might require a large amount of work or "nurturing" as well.
I've been wondering if S's in general like things that appeal to their five senses, while NT's might like an animal that makes them think. For example, my INTP sister loves horses because they give her a mental work out and let her puzzle solve when she's training them. Any thoughts?
