I am looking for a word that means "tendency to avoid something". At first I thought that aversion fit the bill, but then I learned that it meant "a strong dislike towards something."
For example, most people have an aversion towards feces. I am looking for a word that more along the lines of "they don't hate PBJs, they just try to avoid them as much as possible."
I am referring to general avoidance of a (leniently) specific thing. Example:
My friend almost always avoids walking counterclockwise around a table. He must have a [insert word here] towards such an action.
rather than "My Aunt avoided crossing the projected path of a speeding trash truck today. I think it saved her life."
