Symmetrophobia: The Fear of Symmetry

Symmetrophobia is the abnormal and persistent fear or dislike of symmetry.  Those who suffer from this phobia will rearrange the furniture to make sure that the end tables are not the same distance from the couch.
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.
