Abstract

We tested whether a unidimensional measure of an individual's predisposition to anthropomorphize (IDAQ score) was predictive anthropomorphism ratings along a two-dimensional ratings scale (based on Haslam's dehumanization model). Results indicate that, when anthropomorphizing robots, IDAQ scores may be more predictive of the Uniquely Human dimension of anthropomorphism than of the Human Nature dimension.
