Thanks! Bump!   When I take a long time, I am slow.   When my boss takes a long time, he is thorough.   When I don't do it, I am lazy.   When my boss doesn't do it, he is too busy.   When I do something without being told, I am trying to be smart.   When my boss does the same, that is initiative.   When I please my boss, I am ***-kissing.   When my boss pleases his boss, he is co-operating.   I do good, my boss never remembers.   When I do wrong, he never forgets.

they all have their own fear of being left alone and always seeking for happiness..they fool themselves niether they didnt want accept the truth

Was Rei really afraid of being left alone, or just not understanding who she was, and why she had feelings toward her creator?
I think I see that maybe in Shinji and Asuka (especially Asuka)But Rei always seemed from another world of thought process.
Agreed, they definitely did want to fool themselves. Or at least repress memories.

I suppose in a way most of the characters suffer from nihilophobia, quite literally the fear of nothingness, which is prevalent in both Shinji & Asuka, they both long for some form of contact, but both for very different reasons.

The same is true for the emptiness felt by Gendo regarding his longing to be reconnected with Yui and I suppose in a way the same can be said for Professor Fyutsuki.

Ritsuko might suffer from a mild form of this given her actions in EoE.

Katsuragi uses here connection with people as a front to hide more closely guarded personal struggles, so in a way hers can also be identified as a form of nihilophobia.

Kaworu is probably the odd one out from this group, because he is open with his thoughts and emotions and not insular like everyone else in the show.

As for Ayanami, hers is an interesting case, both her first and third forms seem to be devoid of emotion, or for that matter any form of free will, but then you have Rei II who experiences what it is like to feel, her smile after the battle with Ramiel, and most notably her sacrificial act which ended the battle with Armisael are example of her feeling.
How this all relates to nihilophobia is intriguing, simply because some say she has the properties of the quark in quantum Mechanics, for you see, she has a form of omnipresence.
Quarks like some other particles are theorized to reverse the constant of causality in that they can they can experience an effect of an issue prior to the cause of the issue.
Therefore Rei we first see in Episode one would have had to be Rei III because Rei II would have been recovering at NERV HQ, and most notably her eyes resemble the Sachiel Eyes and are very dark and emotionless.
Therefore being that in someway she is a progenitor, suffering from a fear of nothingness is not entirely within the scope of here reality, for her overall task is fundamentally a solitary one.
Basically Omnipresence and nihilophobia are two contrasting elements.

Please tell me if my analysis of Ayanami was a bit confusing.

The question in my mind is what came first, the psychos or the psychobabble.

The Psychos because they had to learn the speaking and writing later

Well in this case I meant did the writers actually think any of the above stuff when making the characters or is it all applied afterwards. One could break down intellectually the symbolism of pretty much anything regardless of whether there actually is any meaning present.
