Anthropomorphism/comparative psychology/animals/Gosling: many people, especially those working in sciences, have been reluctant to concede that personality exists in non-human animals. Their concerns range from philosophical arguments regarding the uniqueness of humans to methodological concerns about the perils of anthropomorphism (Gosling 2001)(1). To address concerns about the existence of personality in animals, Gosling, Lilienfeld and Marino (2003(2); see also Gosling and Vazire 2002(3)).
