Angrophobia

Angrophobia is an overwhelming, irrational fear of anger and/or of becoming angry. The angrophobic person may fear that their anger will hurt another person’s feelings or that their anger may intensify and turn to violence. Some people coping with this phobia will completely withdraw from socializing and may actively avoid contact with others. Angrophobia derives from the Greek word “orgidzo”, meaning anger and “phobos” meaning fear.
