    Atychiphobia

    "From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: Atychiphobia (from the Greek phóbos, meaning "fear" or "morbid fear" and atyches meaning "unfortunate" ) is 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. Often this person will subconsciously undermine their own efforts so that they no longer have to continue to try.

    Because effort is proportionate to the achievement of personal goals and fulfillment, this unwillingness to try that arises from the perceived inequality between the possibilities of success and failure holds the atychiphobic back from a life of meaning and the realization of potential. By definition, the anxiety of any particular phobia is understood to be disproportionate to reality, and the victim is typically aware that the fear is irrational, making the problem a largely subconscious one. For this reason there are no simple treatments for atychiphobia, however there are several options available."

    Possible Symptoms of Atychiphobia:

    1. Online public forum contributors who post regularly but seldom if ever start threads of their own.

    6. Those risk averse employees who are secure in uninteresting repetitive task jobs who decline attractive promotion offers with other companies which would mean greater responsibility, compensation and benefits for them and their families.

    Returning and immediately talking about the possible "phobias" of fellow posters sounds like your sulking isn't over yet. What on earth do "the possibilities of success and failure" have to do with people starting threads on a message board mostly populated by grown ups? Gosh. Fear of "success [or] failure"? People would be forgiven for thinking you're talking about yourself! 😀

    edit: that was No.10 on the "list" btw.

    Trying to cover for FMF won't work, because he obviously thought GB came back and started this thread recently.
