K is for Kakorrhaphiophobia





An abnormal fear of failure

Something all perfectionists have. ☺ Excellent 'K' word. Happy Thursday!

welcome to my world of poetry said...

I'm glad you wrote how to pronouce that word. Great K word though I never heard of it before.

I've never heard of this word. I've learned something new today. Doubt I'll remember how to pronounce it tomorrow though.

I thought I was winning until I saw that word, then I realized that I was mistaken.

That's what you call it? I think I have touch.

I think I have a healthy fear of failure. No one wants to believe they are "abnormal." Great K word.

Interesting. I wonder at what point one crosses over from a "normal" fear of failure to this?

Linda Fischer said...

I think you made that up! :)

Awesome word!!

That's a great word! I hazard to say that those who suffer it would not be reassured in trying to pronounce it, which would only result in failure.
