← Back to: List of phobias
Technophobia is the fear of using advanced technology. This phobia is very common in varying degrees, affecting about 30% of the population, but the percentage is generally much higher among those who work in an organization. Studies suggest that as many as 85% to 90% of new employees at an organization suffer from some degree of technophobia at some point in their career.
Those with technophobia typically refrain from using technological devices, such as computers and mobile phones. Technophobes often believe that using said devices will worsen their lives.
A technophobic person can be treated by informing them of the benefits of technology or by gradually introducing them to technological devices.
