A Lackadaisical Lexicon for Laggard Logophiles
ATYCHIPHOBIA
[noun]
the abnormal, unwarranted, and persistent fear of failure. As with many phobias, atychiphobia often leads to a constricted lifestyle and is particularly devastating for its effects on a person’s willingness to attempt certain activities. A person afflicted with atychiphobia considers the possibility of failure so intense that they choose not to take the risk. Oftentimes this person will subconsciously undermine their own efforts so that they no longer have to continue to try.
Etymology: from the Greek phóbos - “fear” or “morbid fear” and atyches - “unfortunate”.
