What are your fears/phobias?

Recommended Posts

I'm surprised no one started this thread!

 

What are your guy's fears?

 

 

I have fears of heights, spiders, bees, and being abused.

 

 

And just for the hell of it, here's a helpful phobia site (which some of these made me laugh to be honest) you'll see why:

Also, be family friendly and don't judge one another by their fears.

Falling. Definitely falling.

 

Also going insane.

 

Don't like clowns and ghosts, but not really scared.

 

Serial killers, definitely. Don't know why I watch Criminal Minds.

Drowning, Hell, dogs, sharp things pointed at my eyes, and getting raped.

 

 

A pretty cliched and unimpressive list, I suppose. I can say that I wouldn't mind any of the "painless" ways of dying (a gunshot to the head, getting hit by a truck, etc.)

I'm scared of bees/wasps, but my fear has been waning since I got stung.

 

Aside from that, I don't think i'm scared of anything. Except re-deads from Legend of Zelda :/

This.

 

The list of Phobias that Flareon posted is just hilarious. Some of the things there are more reasonable than they might seem, though.

Oh dear. I need to get my eyes checked. When I first read that, I thought it said "failing." :huh:

 

 

Anyone here have Thaasophobia? That would be a hard one to live with.

^I mean, that probably made a lot more sense a few hundred years ago. Today, it just seems laughable. I mean, consumption is a punch-line now. I'm sure cancer will eventually be a joke as well.

 

 

 

Cardiophobia: fear of the heart.

Check my new tag line -- maybe it's not so crazy.

Cynophobiac right here.

 

Hey, we need to form a cabal or something. Too many people treat dogs as if they're royalty and perfect in every way.

 

 

I want to meet someone with Dikephobia. I think that would be an interesting experience.

Falling/heights is a similar fear but I'm scared of falling too...

 

Yeah the list is pretty hilarious but most of them are true!

 

I never treated my dogs like royalty or anything but I certainly did not treat them like children either!

 

I wonder if there's a fear of fears (Y)

Anatidaephobia: the fear that, somewhere, a duck is watching you.

 

Oh man, it would be creepy if Madhav was looking at this thread right now :/

Acrophobia - The fear of heights

 

 

 

Bathophobia - Fear of great depths [Not so much if I decide to swim down, but more like if you were on the Titanic and had to jump and fall a little far underwater...]

 

 

Triskaidekaphobia - Fear of the number 13 (I'm joking here, lol, not really... (Y) )

 

 

So yes, I have 2 fears: great depths and great heights. Falling: not so much, unless

 

a. I am committing suicide

b. I accidentally was admiring the view of the Empire State Building from the 102nd floor and accidentally fell over (screw that fence thing!)

c. Josh pushed me off Q1.

 

Also, here's something ironic: the fear of long words is known as

 

 

hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia

Snap!

 

 

Maybe the fear isn't as bad in photographs...no? There should be a way to distinguish between fear of things in general, in person, in sight, etc.

I'm not really afraid of spiders -- I find them annoying.

 

On the other hand, we just got a bunch of rattlesnakes and gaboon vipers -- those I'm afraid of.

 

(I'm hoping they will all be gone on Saturday.)

Yeah, I feel the same about spiders. Not sure if I'm scared of snakes or just grossed out by them (as well as creeped out at the thought of one of them sliding up my pants).

 

I think I'd rather be locked in a cage with a bear than a dog. At least the bear would just rip my head off, whereas the dog would go for more sensitive, but less vital parts of the body.

Not at all. Any dog can be cowed if you how to talk to it (like Cesar Milan). And if not, it's possible I could kill it before it killed me.

 

I hear bears can be cowed, but I'm not going to try.

 

Snakes aren't slimy at all, but they still give me the creeps.
