"Less agreeable" people are more likely to prefer dogs associated with aggression, according to psychologists.
A study at the University of Leicester compared human personality type with the breed of dog they would choose.
Dogs with a reputation for aggression were more popular with people who were "less concerned with the needs of others and quicker to become hostile".
Researchers say the results support the idea that dogs are likely to match their owners.
The study took a range of popular dogs and ranked them according to their reputations for being more or less aggressive.
At one end of the scale was a Staffordshire bull terrier and the other was a cocker spaniel.
