Believe it or not … there’s a term for people with an irrational fear of numbers!
It’s called ‘numerophobia’.
Now, we’re all pretty familiar with the superstitions surrounding numbers.
The #13 is widely considered to be unlucky. So much so, that many architects skip the 13th floor when designing their buildings.
The #666 is believed to be the sign of the devil!
And … many people prescribe to the belief; bad things happen in 3’s.
For example, lighting three cigarettes with a single match … will lead to death!
But, numerophobia is a whole new level!
Individuals stricken with this affliction fear all kinds of numbers – especially complex math equations!
So … what does this have to do with Match and Fable’s latest role?
That said … if you’re a numerophobe … this role definitely wouldn’t be up your alley.
