People who talk to their pets are definitely NOT crazy... well, according to this new study they're not.

Believe it or not, but talking to your dog or cat (or whatever other pets you have) actually means you're more intelligent than others.

So if you go home after work tonight and find yourself asking your pet how their day at home was, rest assured that you're not crazy!

Behaviorial science professor Nicholas Epley told Quartz:

"Historically, anthropomorphizing has been treated as a sign of childishness or stupidity, but it’s actually a natural byproduct of the tendency that makes humans uniquely smart on this planet. No other species has this tendency."

So you're not crazy, just super smart!
