Autophobia can be used to describe three types of psychological disorders:
- As mentioned by Archetype, this particular phobia is the fear of being alone. This is perhaps the most common type of disorder that falls under the category of autophobia.
- A lesser known fear under autophobia is the fear of being egotistical or the fear of one's own ego. Good thing Jennifer doesn't have this or she'd be in a constant state of apprehension.
- The rarest condition of autophobia is the fear of oneself. This manisfestation is a frightening idea in itself. To live in a constant state of not being able to look in the mirror because the image frightens you, to not allow yourself to do anything for fear of what you could do... that would be a dreadful life.
