Gnosiophobia: The Fear of Knowledge

Fear of Knowledge: Against Relativism and ConstructivismGnosiophobia is the abnormal and persistent fear of knowledge.  It appears that many people have this fear in today's society.  I'm not trying to make a joke out of it, but seriously a lot of people seem to be making stupid an art form.

Those who suffer from this phobia are terrified to learn anything.  They are afraid to go to school or do anything that involves learning something. 

Do you suffer from Gnosiophobia? It's not a common phobia so it would be interesting to learn more about how it's triggered and the effects it has on a person's life.  If you have this phobia let us know what it's really about.
