autophobia (′öd·ə′fōb·ē·ə) 
(psychology) Abnormal fear of one's self or of being alone. 


Directory > Reference > Wikipedia 

Autophobia is an abnormal and persistent fear of loneliness, of being alone. A
fear of solitude. Sufferers from autophobia may experience anxiety even though
they realize that being alone does not threaten their well-being. Autophobics
may worry about being ignored and unloved, or they may worry about intruders,
strange noises or the possibility of developing a medical problem.

Fear of ones self
This is another type of autophobia, essentially an irrational fear of oneself,
basically intense self-fear that is groundless. This can sometimes be
illustrated as an individual with opposing split personalities,
pacifist/violent, A-Type,B-Type, etc...

Word anatomy
The word "autophobia" is derived from two Greek words: "autos" (self) and
"phobos" (fear) = literally, self-fear, fear of oneself. "Autos" has given us
many English words such as "automatic" and "automotive" (self-moving) and
"autonomy" (self-governing). And "phobos" has bequeathed us a vast number of
phobias such as "claustrophobia" (fear of closed places) and "acrophobia" (fear
of heights)

The Band
The 4 piece alternative-rock band Autophobia hailing from Northfield, Minnesota,
consists of Daniel Lohmann, Paul Johnson, Colin Watkins, and Tylor Martinson.
The band has been together since 2004, and has released one album, "Stay Awake",
which is available on iTunes music store.
