4- Aware Anthropomorphic Form:

Our last anthropomorphic form is aware anthropomorphic form. Aware anthropomorphic form imitates the human capacity for thought, intentionality, or inquiry. It also recognizes the social qualities of being human. However, unlike the anthropomorphic form of character, which privileges the individual in the society, aware anthropomorphic form emphasizes a common nature of being human. Forms that suggest they posses a knowledge of the self in relation to others, the ability to construct or manipulate abstract ideas, or the ability to
actively participate with others are evidence of aware anthropomorphic form.

Anthropomorphism kullanımı

  • Anthropomorphism and personification although they seem to be the same, actually are not the same. In anthropomorphism, the object or animal is acting like human, on the other hand in personification, the object or animal just seems like it’s doing something human.
  • Anthropomorphism is the attribution of human traits, emotions, or intentions to non-human entities. It is considered to be an innate tendency of human psychology.
  • Personification is the related attribution of human form and characteristics to abstract concepts such as nations, emotions, and natural forces, such as seasons and weather.
  • Both have ancient roots as storytelling and artistic devices, and most cultures have traditional fables with anthropomorphized animals as characters. People have also routinely attributed human emotions and behavioral traits to wild as well as domesticated animals.
  • In mythology, anthropomorphism is the perception of a divine being or beings in human form, or the recognition of human qualities in these beings.
