Examples of Personification

Have you ever heard someone say:
"This computer's really smart!"

Then you have experienced personification of an object. People use Personification in language when they describe things that are not human with human qualities (for example happiness, intelligence, feelings). In the example above, we know that the computer is no alive, but it is described by the person (the speaker) as being smart. While it has been intelligently designed by humans, it does not possess intelligence or even smart thoughts of its own, instead it is just a bunch on electrical parts!
