I just finished one of those lectures and one interesting topic that they have is about Phobia. Phobia, is a term that describes fear of something. So being a IT Professional and person who is more comfortable in using Technology, look up if there is a term that describes a person who is afraid of Technology or Gadgets or computers.
So I fired up Google and you can check the list above the jump.
Technology – Technophobia
Computers or working on computers- Cyberphobia
Social (fear of being evaluated negatively in social situations)- Social Phobia
I guess if you a reading this blog, you do not have any of the phobias above. I also wonder if a person with Social Phobia is on Facebook, Twitter or even Friendster. I was also looking up the “fear of gadgets or using gadgets” but was not able to get any clear answer, I will either get “Cyberphobia” or “Technophobia”. But if you know the exact term for it, I would appreciate it very much.
