Selfiephobia: The Fear of Taking a Photograph of Oneself

Selfiephobia is the fear of taking a picture of oneself.  I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone with this phobia.  It’s usually the other way around.  I’ve witnessed folks take selfie after selfie after selfie and then to social media they immediately go.

Those with Selfiephobia are the opposite though.  They can’t stand to take pictures of themselves, because they don’t want to see what they look like in the pictures.  They have a vision of what they should look like and when they see the pictures it’s totally different and they’re not too keen on it.

Do you suffer from Selfiephobia? Please share your story.  How was it triggered and how does it affect your life?
