  Therianthropy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Therianthropy is a generic term for any transformation of a human into another animal form, or for a being which displays both human and animal characteristics, either as a part of mythology or as a spiritual concept.
Therianthropy can also refer to characters that share man and animal traits at the same time, for example with the animal-headed human forms of gods in Egyptian mythology (such as Ra, Sobek and others) as well as creatures like centaurs and mermaids.
A nearly endless number of types of therianthropy could thus be referred to by their own individual terms, though most of these would be neologisms.

Therianthropy can be used to label a character that shares some traits of humans and some of non-human animals.
The most commonly known form of therianthropy is lycanthropy, from the Greek word lycos ("wolf"), the technical term for man-wolf transformations (Rose, 230).
Much of the time, therianthropy is not given any specific explanation in legends, other than being generally attributed to magic, which may be voluntary (a supernatural power) or involuntary (a curse).

Spiritual therianthropy is not automatically the same as clinical lycanthropy, a mental illness in which an individual believes he or she belongs to or can change to another species.
That said, since therianthropy involves at least the inner experience of dual (ie human and non-human) natures of some kind, it is reasonable to expect that the two may seem on the surface to share in common at least some dissociative traits.
Stereotypically, it is said that furries view therianthropy as "taking it too far" or "too seriously", while therianthropes assert that furries are frivolous, juvenile, and/or don't respect or understand the true nature of animals.

Therianthropy is a spiritual concept in which the individual believes they have the spirit or soul, in whole or in part, of a non-human animal.

Mental therianthropy is when the person takes on mental characteristics, if not the entire mindset, of an animal.

Of those who share that particular belief, some believe the animal spirit(s) are always manifested within them (and yet another division is between the ones who believe a wereside is effecting them constantly as opposed to those who believe that although it never 'goes away', it does at times lay dormant.

Therianthropy is a state of being and way experiencing the world that leads a person to feel and believe they are partially or completely animal inside (in a mental, emotional and/or spiritual way).
Among animal people, this term is used in a general way and can apply to all types of therianthropes; however, therianthropy usually is assimilated with dichotomic therianthropy, "where the therian ranges between humanity and animality on some level" (source: Shifters.Org).

It's fairly symbolic of therianthropy, with the shift from vertical (standing upright) to horizontal (standing quadrupedally), while still retaining the same essential substance.
Therianthropy and the concept of otherkin have thus far never been beliefs that could be accused of being money-making schemes, and I'd like them to remain that way.
