Welcome to another year of the A to Z Challenge! Today we start with the auspicious letter A!
This year I'm choosing obscure vocabulary words and sharing them with you. I'll also give you cool, or silly (depending on your perspective), reasons why these are words you should know.
Today's word is: AUTOPHOBY
Autophoby is defined as the fear of referring to oneself or of being egotistical.
Reasons to know this word:
-If you're afraid you're becoming a self-obsessed jerk, this may be a good phobia to try on for size.
-If you're on a date and they are letting you go on and on about yourself without interruption, you'll know they may not actually be as interested in you as you hope they are. They may simply be autophobic.
-If this ever comes up on Jeopardy, you can look super smart in front of your friends.
