Coping With Your Fear of string – Linonophobia

Linonophobia is the fear of string. The origin of the word lino is Greek (meaning string) and phobia is Greek (meaning fear). Linonophobia is considered to be a specific phobia, which is discussed on the home page.

What are the causes?

It is generally accepted that phobias arise from a combination of external events (i.e. traumatic events) and internal predispositions (i.e. heredity or genetics). Many specific phobias can be traced back to a specific triggering event, usually a traumatic experience at an early age. Social phobias and agoraphobia have more complex causes that are not entirely known at this time. It is believed that heredity, genetics, and brain chemistry combine with life-experiences to play a major role in the development of phobias
