Anthropomorphism was the practice of imparting Humanoid characteristics to non-humanoids, particularly animals.

In a letter written to Jeremy Lucas in 2151, Doctor Phlox noted that Captain Jonathan Archer tended to anthropomorphise Porthos, speaking to him even though the dog likely understood nothing of what he said. (ENT: "Dear Doctor")

In 2365, Jean-Luc Picard clarified his interest in horses to Deanna Troi, saying he was not interested in anthropomorphising it, just in enjoying its company. (TNG: "Pen Pals")

In 2369, Dr. Farallon dismissed Data's evidence of the exocomps' sentience as the android's anthropomorphising them. (TNG: "The Quality of Life")
