A fear of computers
The extreme and irrational fear of technology is known as Logizomechanophobia. Other names for this phobia include Technophobia or Cyberphobia.
There is no universal cause of logizomechanophobia, but rather traumatic instances from the past are usually the culprit of this phobia. An example is losing a job due to technological advances.
Another reason might be one’s fear of learning how to use a computer, especially if they found it extremely difficult to grasp the concepts and terminology associated with computers. Persons with this fear will do anything to avoid computers. The mere sight or thought of using a computer can cause one to have palpitations, tremors, cold feet and other symptoms of anxiety.
The root cause of the fear should be addressed and may be done aided by a therapist or Yoga therapist trained in relaxation and stress management. Students can be taught little by little how to use a computer and should be taught that computers make our lives a lot easier and they are not our enemies.
