Seeing Man in Man’S Best Friend: the Role of Anthropomorphism on Increasing Prosocial Behavior

Our research examines whether individuals are more likely to donate to an anthropomorphized agent. In contrast to prior research, we emphasize that there are two types of anthropomorphism—explicit (observable) and implicit (non-observable) - that change the willingness to donate to an agent for people with high and low beliefs regarding anthropomorphism.
