Epistemophobia - Fear Of Knowledge


My wife always harped on me for not wanting to learn anything new.

That fact was, I was afraid to change or learn anything new. I later learned I had Epistemophobia- fear of knowledge.

Although I am a smart person, there were things I did not know because of the phobia. I have read Energy Therapy thanks to my wife, and I was grateful when I did overcome my fear.

Unfortunately, overcoming my fear means I have to listen to everything my wife wants to tell me. She thinks I should learn everything, especially how to fix things around the house.
