Có lẽ ư?
các nhà khoa học kết luận: nếu mèo là người, thì chúng có lẽ là psychopath (người bệnh tâm thần, người thần kinh không ổn định)... :D
A study has found that the average cantankerous (khó tính, hay gắt gỏng; hay gây gổ, thích cãi nhau) kitty could be harboring actual psychopathic tendencies.
Researchers at the UK’s University of Liverpool and Liverpool John Moores University surveyed pet owners to rate their cats’ level of psychopathy — as defined by human psychological standards.
Their findings, published in the December issue of the Journal of Research in Personality, revealed that most cats fall somewhere on the spectrum of psychopathy — that is, on the “triarchic” concept of psychopathy, which uses levels of boldness (trơ tráo, trơ trẽn), meanness (bần tiện) and disinhibition (sự mất phản xạ có điều kiện) to measure the psychiatric disorder in people.
The 46-question survey, which currently includes 549 participants, asked cat owners to rate whether their cat “torments (làm đau khổ, dày vò, dằn vặt; chòng ghẹo) their prey (con mồi) rather than killing it straight away,” “cat dominates neighborhood cat(s) (e.g. chases them, picks fights with them),” “is undeterred by punishment i.e. will repeat behaviors he/she is scolded for” and “vocalizes loudly (e.g. meows, yowls) for no apparent reason.” Responses were documented on a five-factor scale, from “Does not describe my cat” to “Describes my cat extremely well.”
In addition, researchers added human-unfriendliness and pet-unfriendliness to their scale to create the Cat Triarchic Plus, a tool to measure feline psychopathy.
