Are you a technophobe? If you are, you are not alone. Greg Hughes writes about Technophobic people in Canada. He says it affects 30-40% of the population. while that seems high, the reality is there are still a lot of poeple out there who are deathly afraid to touch anything "techy."
It's a curious paradox that in a country like Canada, one of the most computer-friendly nations on earth, we also boast a sizeable chunk of people – between 30 and 40 per cent of the population – who simply refuse to learn how computers work. These people have a label: technophobes. Technophobia is a fear of computers or technology. And it's a social problem on the rise throughout the western world.
