What's your phobia? ---UPDATE: Redid the link...

Posted by   + Show Post

Go to phobialist.com and look through the list and see what fear or fears you have! 


I have Musophobia (fear of mice), used to have Novercaphobia (fear of stepmom, lol, no joke either), obesophobia (fear of gaining weight), and slightly Omphalophobia (fear of belly buttons, i can't touch mine or someone elses! lol). 

That's just a short list of the fears I have, but the "major" ones from the list. 

What are your fears?

I have this too. As far as i know, there is no name for it. But my fear includes anything submerged. The larger the submerged object, the more disturbing it is to me.


Quoting Anonymous:

I don't know what it's called, but I have a fear of seeing large things in the ocean or in space.  For example, I cannot watch the movie Titanic because it freaks me out.  I'm not scared of boats or the water, it's the size of the ship and the fact that part of it is under the water, unseen.  It's strange.  I can't watch things with large whales underwater.  Things with large spaceships in outer space are weird too.  My breathing changes and my heartrate speeds up...it's very uncomfortable.  :/

is it because it's a little space that you are practically trapped in until the doors come open?

I get a little anxiety when entering old elevators, but I'm terrified they will break down! lol.
