The Effects of Anthropomorphization on Brand Personality Perceptions: a Motivational Account
This research provides a motivation-based conceptualization for the antecedents and consequences of brand anthropomorphism. We propose that consumers with a sociality (effectance) motivation will humanize the brand and perceive it as warmer (more dependable) than those who do not have such a motivation; this has corresponding implications for advertising effectiveness.
