Autophobia (from the Greek: υτο, auto, “self” and φόβος, phóbos, “fear”), is the specific phobia of isolation; a morbid fear of being egotistical, or a dread of being alone or isolated.
Sufferers need not be physically alone, but believe that they are being ignored, unloved, threatened by intruders, and so on.
Autophobia is also used in its literal context to mean an irrational fear of oneself. It is sometimes associated with self-hatred. Autophobia may be a symptom of other psychological disorders orit may predispose a person to developing other psychological disorders.
