Xenophobia

Xenophobia is the fear and distrust of that which is perceived to be foreign or strange.

Xenophobia can manifest itself in suspicion of the activities of others, and a desire to eliminate their presence to secure a presumed purity.

It is related to a fear of losing national, ethnic or racial identity.

How does xenophobia (your own, or of other stakeholders in the design problem) affect the analysis of a problem, or the proposed solutions?
