← Back to: List of phobias


Epistemophobia, also called gnosiophobia, is a fear of knowledge. Sufferers would limit their knowledge, avoid engaging in conversations, be ignorant and like to be alone, resulting in social anxiety. They would also avoid reading books, newspapers, magazines, and some would even avoid watching television.

This fear can be treated by simply teaching sufferers not to fear knowledge or learning, because they're very important and part of everyone's lives.
