Neophobia – Fear of Newness

Post by sujin007 on Sat Nov 17, 2012 1:04 pm

Neophobia is the fear of new things or experiences. It is also called cainotophobia. In psychology, it is defined as the persistent and abnormal fear of anything new. Technophobia can be seen as a specialized form of neophobia, by fearing new technology.

In its milder form, it can manifest as the unwillingness to try new things or break from routine. The term is also used to describe anger, frustration or trepidation toward new things and toward change in general.

Some conservative and reactionary groups are often described as neophobic, in their attempts to preserve traditions or revert society to a perceived past form.
