When we hear the word “phobia” we tend to think of the fear of spiders, heights, small spaces, etc., The reality and that the phobias can be caused by all sorts of things, even those that others enjoy and love, until, for example, phones and computers.
The increasingly widespread use of the technology has brought wonderful things, but for other reasons of anxiety, worry, anguish and fear.
Despite the fact that phobias to the technology have no names, clinical officers, these exist. “there is no doubt that some individuals feel a deep fear of the technology or devices in specific for various reasons”. Said the professor, and specialist in phobias , Dr. Martin Antony to Mashable.
These are just some of the ones that have become more common. Insurance you you will identify with one or several of these situations.
1. Tecnophobia: fear of technology
The ‘technophobia’ is the that contains all. Began to emerge during the Industrial Revolution and continued to evolve from there.
The term refers to fear or anxiety abnormal to the effects of the technology. People who feel uncomfortable around advanced technology can also be considered as “tecnofóbicos”.
I get the feeling that instead of progress, we go backwards:
-People against vaccines
-Technophobia (which is, to some extent I understand, but lmao)
And more things 😥😥

2. Nomofobia: fear of being without a mobile device
If you are addicted to the cell phone, this phobia might make sense for you.

There are other fears which emerge here as the fear of losing signal, running out of battery, or, worst of all, losing your phone.
The who has not experienced this anxiety that the first to throw a stone.

4. Telefonophobia: fear of phones
This is not a fear of the phone itself, rather it is the fear to receive and answer calls. It is similar to the fear of public speaking. Some people are intimidated or feel nervous to hear that it sounds and will avoid answering at all costs.
The telefonofobia is related to the social anxiety, as the fear to look silly or ridiculous.
If ever you answer the call and you prefer to write messages can be even to get this phobia.
