The word is a derivative of doxophobia, but the two words have contradictory meanings. Doxophobia refers to the fear of expressing opinions, Allodoxaphobia, in contrast, is the fear of hearing other people’s opinions.
The word comes from Greek “allo” meaning different, “dox” meaning opinion, and “phobos,” which comes from the Greek god of fear.
