← Back to: List of phobias
Technophobia is the fear of using advanced technology technology. Technophobia is very common in varying degrees, affecting about 30% of the population, but percentage is often much higher when working in an organization. Studies suggest that as high as 85% to 90% of new employees at an organization suffer technophobia at least to a small degree and briefly.
Sufferers of technophobia would refrain using any technological devices, like computers or mobile phones. Technophobes think using those devices would ruin their lives. The fear is often treated by thinking positive about technologies, or by peacefully telling them that technologies upgraded human lives and societies.
