Succumbing to isolation

In order to reduce the amount of anxiety that they'll experience in any given day from their allodoxaphobia, they may try to avoid people altogether. Though avoiding people may help to relieve some of the anxiety associated with their allodoxaphobia, it may only worsen their anxiety in the long run.

Besides avoiding people who may judge them, they may also try to abstain from having opinions themselves. They may feel as though if they have opinions on things, especially opinions about sensitive subjects , that this may open the door for other people to judge them based on their positions
