Logizomechanophobia: The Fear of Computers

Logizomechanophobia is the abnormal and persistent fear of computers.  This phobia may be caused by not understanding how computers work.  Logizomechanophobia is closely related to Cyberphobia, the fear of computers, working on computers or technology.
A phobia is a strong, persistent fear of situations, objects, activities or persons.  The main symptom is an excessive and unreasonable desire to avoid the feared subject. Other phobia symptoms include shortness of breath, irregular heartbeat, sweating, nausea, and an overall feeling of dread.  Phobias are the most common form of anxiety disorders.
