About This Quiz

Since ancient time,s people have anthropomorphized, or ascribed human attributes to animals, plants or other objects. It's so common because humans have needed to interpret the world in a way they see and understand it.

In Egypt in the 13th century BCE, you'll note the "Tale of Two Brothers" features talking cows. Another example is in Rome in the second century CE, the west wind is anthropomorphized in the tale "Cupid and Psyche" and carries Psyche away. Later in the story an ant feels sorry for Psyche and helps her in her quest. For more recent examples, head to YouTube and you'll see people ascribing human emotions (shame, anger, joy) to cats and dogs. They even dress them in clothes and Halloween outfits to make them more people-like.
