A student at the Chengdu University of Technology dropped out of school last year because "he is afraid of the upcoming 2012 year," the year, at which the Mayans predicted the world will end, the Jinan Daily reported on Tuesday.

Li Tong, the drop out's former roommate, told the newspaper that everyone on campus knew that Xiaoyin's (pseudonym) sudden departure from school was related to his fear of the upcoming 2012 year.

"He is totally convinced of the theory the world will end in 2012," said Li.

On December 22, Xiaoyin told the newspaper the reason he dropped out was because he went to study music for a year. Although he definitely believes the world will end in 2012, he did not, "leave school to prepare for the disaster."

"I believe the year of 2012 means the end to some people but it is also an evolution to others," said Xiaoyin.

Xiaoyin believed he was born with the ability to predict things, that is, he can predict future disasters. "The end of the world will definitely come," he said.

Zhang Lin, a psychotherapist said Xiaoyin's "ability" probably originated from a psychological suggestion, which has inspired him to believe he has superpowers.
