"Kleptophobia" in context

Kleptophobia is a unique and uncommon fear that can have a serious and damaging effect on an individual's life. It is the fear of stealing or being a thief, although the sufferer is not a thief in any way and does not intend to become one. It is a fear of stealing one's own possessions, even though the sufferer is not interested in doing so, and others may find this behaviour irrational.

Kleptophobia is often caused by experiences in childhood such as parental disciplines or experiences of being bullied by peers, although it can also be caused by a traumatic event that has occurred later in life.
