What is the the fear of people coming over/into your house called?

  • What is the fear called? I don't really understand what you mean but if you are afraid of someone then you shouldn't have them over, and if you are afraid of them then they aren't friends...

  • I'm not sure what the actual term for the phobia is, but I'd say it's some sort of social anxiety.

  • Pentheraphobia is fear of your MIL... But I'm not thinking there is one specifically for having friends in your home...

  • I'm not afraid to leave my house or anything, I love going places. I just have a fear of people coming over to my house in general. Its not really certain people, it everyone. I sometimes won't even answer my door bc it bothers me. I mean I won't even answer for the UPS guy or the mail man. Outside my house I am fine, I have no problems and will talk to everyone and anyone. Its just my house, I don't like people in it or coming over.
