Experiences of Anthropomorphism

26 May 2017

Anthropomorphism is the attribution of human characteristics (thoughts, feelings, intentions, personality ) to non-human agents. It is a common (and normal) yet often implicit tendency, which seems to vary considerably from one person to another in terms of both content and frequency. As part of my master's dissertation project at UCL, I am interested in understanding individual experiences of anthropomorphism and what they may involve for those who recognise this tendency in themselves.
