Technophobia: The Fear of Technology

Technophobia is the abnormal and persistent fear of technology.  This phobia is closely related to Cyberphobia, the fear of computers and technology and Logizomechanophobia, the fear of computers.

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.
