I found this word and I had no clue that there are others with this!! My 13yo MR son flew his brand new remote controlled helicopter into very dense brush that has thorns and a fence so we cannot get to it to get it back. It hit me then that I have always attributed human characteristics (feeling lonely, cold) to inanimate objects. I was so sad for his helicopter that I cried and I am still very sad for it being out there. It is so cold and must be lonely
I always wondered what this is, but when I googled feelings for inanimate objects, I got that word. I am glad I am not the only one, but I still feel so sad for his brand new toy!!
