Logizomechanophobia is a specific phobia, wLogizomechanophobia is also related Cyberphobia (fear of computers or working on a computer) and Technophobia (fear of technology).

What are the causes?

It is generally accepted that phobias arise from a combination of external events (i.e. traumatic events) and internal predispositions (i.e. heredity or genetics). Many specific phobias can be traced back to a specific triggering event, usually a traumatic experience at an early age.  In Ayurveda people have a disposition to behaviours that are related to their dosha either Vata – Fear ; Pita – Anger; Kapha – Lack of motivation.
