I was going to post this about a year ago but was unsure.
What is below is a genuine situation.
I’m wondering if any other kindred spirits out there experience high levels of Anthropomorphism ( giving non living things human characteristics.) We all I’m sure anthropomorphize to an extent, a banana using scissors and so on but these images react with me not just the next object.
I have average reason ability but have a huge imagination which at times has been my fortress and my attacker.
I stopped doing mnemonics for many years because anthropomorphism was causing emotional upsets and still does.
For example: I place an item on a journey, let’s say a loaf of bread, a cup or a book… On review perhaps a week later, the item would be very sad that I didn’t return earlier. It would say that it’s lonely and upset. This constant recurring experience filters into everyday life.
I still have this with my palaces. They always have something to say to me.
Huge amount more to say on this but I want to keep it simple.
Does anyone else experience this with their mnemonics?
Below is my list just from 1-20. I have placed a small anthropomorphic description that I have alongside.
1 Tie: aloof
2 Noah (ark): touchy needs be pulled in line.
3 Mia: (girl) happy to play along, gets a bit bored at times
4 Rye (bottle): reluctant but eventually will toe the line
5 Law (policeman): attitude of neither here nor there.
6 Shoe: solid, wonders why others don’t play along
7 Cow: always playing the fool.
8 Ufo: most easy going, pliable.
9 Bee: ready at an instant
10 Daisy: show off, attention grabbing
11 Toad: cheeky with a bit of 7 in him
12 Tin: bit of an attacker. Insistent
13 Time: (clock): thinks everything is beneath him
14 Tyre: never quite lives up to his bravado
15 Tool (hammer): gentle, reticent
16 Tash: playful not always concentrating
17 Tack: couldn’t care less attitude
18 Dove: doesn’t allays show up
19 Tub (tin bath): patient but no nonsense
20 Nose: flexible, adaptable.
