Ayurvedic Treatment of Scriptophobia (Fear Of Writing In Public)


Scriptophobia is the fear of writing in public. As the name suggests script means to write and phobia means fear. Scriptophobia is considered to be a social and specific fear, due to which the one suffering from it, finds it difficult to write in public. Sometimes they develop such an intense amount of anxiety while writing that they start getting panic attacks, sweating, muscle tensions, an increase in heart rate, shakiness, etc. It is a social anxiety disorder hence it affects day to day lives of an individual. Generally, a person suffering from scriptophobia avoids writing in public and finds difficulty in their work-life; very often they take the career paths that require little or no amount of public writing. For students and people in the job, scriptophobia may lead to serious panic attacks whenever the sufferer has to write in public.


Sometimes scriptophobia can lead to a related disorder called ‘Graphophobia,’ in which the individual suffering may develop a strange problem which makes them feel afraid of writing down their own personal thoughts. Such individuals may feel that their writing will lead to devastating results because their innermost thoughts may get exposed. Scriptophobia may also give rise to other kind of mental health problems like depression and feeling of loneliness.


e mental health professional suggests that there is no specific reason or cause for scriptophobia but genetics (memories can be passed down to later generations through genetic switches) and environmental factors (any past traumatic events resulting in criticism) may lead to this social anxiety disorder i.e., the fear of writing in public. These specific phobias are caused by a specific triggering event, usually a traumatic experience, a negative experience in the past or developing lack of self-esteem at an early age.


The symptoms for phobia vary from person to person depending on their level of fear. The symptoms typically include:

  • Extreme anxiety
  • Heart palpitations
  • Panic attacks such as shortness of breath, irregular heartbeat
  • Excessive Sweating
  • Nausea
  • Dry mouth
  • Inability to articulate words
  • Shaking
