Cats often get accused of being much less personable than dogs.

While they tend to be much more independent than their canine counterparts,

a new study finds there’s much more to a cat’s personality than meets the eye.

A team from the University of Helsinki say they’ve identified seven distinct personality

and behavioral traits which cats display regularly.

  • Activity/playfulness
  • Fearfulness
  • Aggression towards humans
  • Sociability towards humans
  • Sociability towards cats
  • Litterbox issues (relieving themselves in inappropriate places or displaying poor litterbox cleanliness)
  • Excessive grooming

If you think cats can be difficult to get along with in their own homes,

The Finnish team opted to survey owners at home, noting that cats don’t necessarily

behave like themselves when you take them out of their comfortable environments.
