What is a noun for the level of how anthropomorphic an object is?

English Language & Usage Asked on January 5, 2022

Consider a set of objects like the following:

  • a cube
  • a 3-fingered robot claw
  • a robot hand in the general shape of a human hand
  • a human hand

Objects further down the list have more "human" characteristics, and are thus more "anthropomorphic". The list is in order of increasing "anthropomorphicity" [a fake word].

What real word could replace the fake word "anthropomorphicity"?

One Answer

I think you are looking for anthropomorphism:

the showing or treating of animals, gods, and objects as if they are human in appearance, character, or behaviour.
