Sophophobia: The Fear of Learning

Sophophobia is the abnormal and persistent fear of learning.  Those who don’t like to go to school or try to pretend they’re something they’re not may have this phobia.
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.
