Talking To Your Pets Is A Sign Of Intelligence, Science Says

February 28, 2019

We already know that people love dogs more than they love other people, and now it turns out they’re the smartest people in the room.

While some think that people who talk to animals are dumb, Dr. Nicholas Epley, a professor of behavioral science at the University of Chicago, says it’s the opposite. He says that our ability to attribute human qualities (anthropomorphism) is actually a sign of our brain power because no other species does it.

So for future reference, no you’re not crazy pet lovers!
