The Top Ten

1 Death

What is after death, there is nothing? What would it feel like, eternal nothingness? I mean, does anyone know what nothing feels like?

One of the worlds biggest mystery, even with trillions of people witnessing it. What is it like after death? Darkness? Spending the rest of your life as a ghost? Maybe being reborn in a different world? You can only find out when you die. But you won't be able to tell anyone what it is after death.

I think death does scare allot of people because they don't really for sure know where there going and that is scary

More so of what happens after for me - AutumnRobbins

2 The Dark

People are afraid of the dark for the same reason they are afraid of death, we don't know very much about what lies in/after it. When you don't know what to expect, you lose your sense of control. Two reasons I am never going to look outside my window at night : 5% scared of the dark 95% scared I'll see a face looking back at me. When you lose your sense of control, there is no obvious threat, so you mind creates one. Your mind naturally comes up with the worst possible scenario to avoid putting you in danger.

I really do get scared in the dark but I guess it is because of some nasty people I could bump into? Too many crimes reported on the media... What a world is turning into...

Well, being generally scared of the dark is only reasonable if you're three years old, but in a dark forest, or a dark cave, you don't know what could happen next. - PositronWildhawk

I actually like the dark to be honest. - Powerfulgirl10

3 Not Going to Heaven

Not getting to go to heaven would be terrible.
Think like this:
Essentially, you, say, do things like drugs, getting drunk, abusing people, being really evil.
What do you get for it? A trial, where EVERYBODY who you insulted, abused or harmed would go against you.
Think of it like a normal trial, but about fifty to one hundred prosecutors, no defense, and a judge who had informed you, all throughout your life, about the inevitable trial he would judge you in.

And at the end?
When all is said and done?
"Lucifer, we have another one for you."

Out of the depths of hell comes satan himself.
Picking you up, he carries you back down to hell, where you will forever suffer.
As you are being taken away, you scream "YOUR HONOUR! How could you be so merciless? "
"What are you on about? I gave you ALL my mercy, yet you threw it aside.
You laughed in my face, saying death would never come, that you would not be sent to hell.
Good bye..."

I agree the but the last words from What to bye who is saying that Lucifer or God or an angel just tell me who is saying it

The afterlife might not be as scary as most people think. In my opinion, people are not sentenced to heaven or hell. I think people just end up in either heaven or hell based on how close they are to God, how sorry they are for their sins, and whether they accept God's love. If they let sin overpower them so much that it tears them away from God, then they may end up in hell. If they accept the fact that they are sinners and try hard to move closer to God and away from sin, then they may end up in heaven. Besides, I think hell is more of a state people go into as a result of rejecting God than an actual place. If God is a merciful, loving father-figure who never stops forgiving humanity for its sins, why would he willfully send someone to hell?

One day, you died with every single one of your enemies, friends, and family. All of your enemies went straight up to heaven, and you try to as well, but not before Satan grabs a hold of you. As you are begging for help, all of your friends and family, have suddenly turned against you. They each remembered every bad thing you did to them. One of them says, "We're not helping you escape you frick, and you deserve to go to hell, for what you did to us, sneezing on me that one time on accident, and forgetting to give me a present for Christmas." They all leave you behind, as all your friends, family, and enemies spend their fun time in heaven, while you suffer torment for eternity. As being dragged down, while they walk up, you yell "TRAITORS! HOW COULD YOU! (Dolphin Chirp) YOU! NNOOO! ". You have lost, as everyone else has made it to heaven, while you're here all alone, because you did one bad thing. - DarkenedBrutality

To everybody saying, "Oh I hope I go to heaven and I pray that God would let me in", yo, read what God has said about it in the Bible.

4 Being Sexually Assaulted

I for one, have this as my biggest fear, simply because it has already happened to me, I am a 16 year old girl, and at the age of 15 I was molested by a 42 year old man that happened to be my dad's so called "best friend" nobody should have to go through this, at all, no kids, teenagers, adults, nobody.

I feel bad for you. That man needs to know better. Wish you luck on your recovery. The National Sexual Assault hotline is 1.800.656.HOPE - ethanmeinster

The government should shoot their privates off with an executioner pistol. That'll teach them.

My neighbor tried to molest me when I was five. They're only 2 years older than me. Also, anytime I see anyone who remotely looks like them I have a panic attack. Nobody deserves this. My second fear after this happening again is being stalked / looking out my window one night to see someone looking back.

This is considered the same as rape right? Rape has always been my biggest fear - happyhappyjoyjoy

5 The Unknown

Even if you are biologically death and you feels nothingness, the nothingness itself still a feelings and that makes you feels alive. What makes people's really death is when they are forgotten or the existence is erased. Yet the most scariest thing is the unknown of what will happen and what will it cause. Like, thinking about how will you die is scarier than how death feels like. The unknown also will squirming inside in our head with 'What if? ', which is uncountable possibilities...

This should be in the top ten. Mostly people are only scared of the dark because what might come out is unknown. It's simply a terrifying thing, as you have no control or power over what happens. Therefore, people tend to be scared of things like the dark or their future because it is all unknown.

When something is unknown to us we see it as sinister and horrifying: What lies hidden in the dark, what others may think of us, when we don't know how what we do will turn out for example. People are always afraid of what they do not understand.

I think this one should be at the top because most things on this list are feared BECAUSE of this fear. Life after death is unknown. What lurks in the dark is unknown. You never know if you're going to be sexually assulted. The Justin Beiber one is stupid. Being embarassing in front of loads of people, wel, you don't KNOW if that's gonna happen, but you don't know it's not, and that's why it's scary. Really, this should be number 1.

6 Justin Bieber's Music

I don't personally like Justin Bieber, but everybody has to admit he has talent. His music may not be your kind of thing, but to be SCARED of it is kinda stupid.

I totally agree with this one. One day, my sister and I were listening to the radio and a Justin Bieber song started playing. It was chill for a while, until just that one part bursted. I literally fainted and my ears felt as if they were bleeding. Next thing I know I woke up in the hospital :/ It was the worst experience of my life.

Not his music just him don't get me wrong I also hate his music

Yeah I am more scared in gay sounds

7 Being Embarrassing In Front of a Huge Amount of People

Ah yes, this reminds me of an interesting story. there are many days in my life, and there are few that are more memorable than this. so I was at a rather large hotel, but the T.V. 's had only one channel. So I was watching a film about some rugby players being stranded in Antarctica after there plane crashed, and so I thought to my self "hey, rugby players are awfull at survival! They're all just a bunch of cowards! " unfortunately, I realised this was not a thought, but a shout, and not only that, but my door was open. I was also afraid by the fact that the loud music from downstairs had Stopped, and that they were celebrating there most recent win in, you guest it, rugby. so since I was terrified by the shouting from them, trying to find out who said it, I hid under my bed and I was under there for so long I fell asleep. I never stayed at a premier inn again, and probably never will.

This has to be number, my cousins and my friends siblings are still making fun of us over something that happened years ago and even have pictures, they'll never let us forget

It happened to me and I was so embarrassed...lucky its forgotten...but if you'll want to know my embarrassing event just let me know

This is one of my biggest fears. Hell, I even get humiliated somewhere that's not public EVERY TIME! -Vestalis

8 Pain

I can handle physical pain. What I'm really scared about is emotional pain. It's happened to me. I've had to cry for hours at end, all alone. Believe me, no one wants this to happen to them. It feels like death. All you want is death when it happens. It is death.
It's been really hard for me. Imagine people teasing you just because you like different things. Imagine that all you want is to be treated equally and for someone to love you, but you get hate instead. This is part of my everyday life. I blame my gym teacher. I'm just that bad at sports, okay? Leave me alone! You're embarrassing me.
Sorry, that last part was unnecessary. But it's just because I'm bullied for being bad at sports.

Honestly emotional pain effects me more than physical pain, but I kinda fear physical pain. I am scared of breaking a bone or spraining an ankle. It just seems so painful! But I do love to play sports, I just hope I don't break anything

Both physical and emotional hurt. I mean for one: Getting a serious injury and ending up in the ER is bad, and getting your feelings seriously hurt is also bad. I still think emotional is worse. - Powerfulgirl10

I deal with physical pain but not emotional - AutumnRobbins

9 Being Hurt by the Person You Love

I have never fallen in love but just imagining the one I love doing something to hurt me is heartbreaking.

I'm scared of loving, at all. I feel like when someone says he loves me, it's just a joke. Or if it is real, someday sometime, he's gonna get bored of me and leave. It's so scary investing feelings and growing so attached to that person that you may even forget yourself when you leave. Ick! scary!

That's pretty sad. I have zero interest in dating, and this is one of the reasons why. I mean, your crush hating you sounds really bad. - Powerfulgirl10

My ex was the most ungrateful person I've ever met. Hey ex if your seeing this go suck a lemon

10 Failing

Although death may be the end of our lives and that most of us don't want that to happen already, we all know that it will happen in the future. We all dislike failure. We feel annoyed and frightened when you didn't achieve your goal. Whether the failure was losing your team and feeling hated, working hard/ spending money for nothing, or losing a partner/failing him or her, we fear it more than death. We know we can stop it or not make it happen (unlike death), but we feel so horrible in making that mistake that changed your life/ or won't ever forget for all your life. This is the #1 fear human has.

Just imagining me repeating a grade/class in school...oh my gosh..makes me freak out!

I don't know about anyone but no scary movie can compare to what my dad will do if I fail... It's like digging my own grave.

Not only me would feel sad but also my family. they would be disapointed

11 Loved Ones Dying

That is so sad! My mom's sister and mom had a baby die once, and one of my great grandpas died from cancer. Plus, someone I sort of knew who was mental at my school died from stroke. Why must death exist? - Powerfulgirl10

I feel bad and sad for everyone who had someone who they loved died. I know this may seem strange, BUt when my cat Oscar died, I cried heaps and heaps.

My dad's aunt, I think, died when I was younger because her heart stopped. I cried at her funeral. - 906389

It will be really hard to get over it if your love one died

12 Getting an Injury That Will Permanently Disable You

I was born with multiple eye conditions so I am partly blind. I can't have any surgery to fix it. I won't ever be able to drive, and my mom won't even support me in trying to train myself to read signs. I've been shoved down many staircases and bleachers. Went through depression. So I'm extremely scared of getting further disabled. Also, mom says she wants to look into signs of insomnia for me. Almost died in a car crash. Witnessed my step-dad (at the time) beat my mom with a hammer in front of my younger siblings. Been to 5 different schools in my life. And was threatened to be sent to Juvie by my mom. Sorry, none of you probably care anyway.

I always watch out for blindness - DubstepLover

I would hate to be blind, deaf, or have memory loss. - Powerfulgirl10

I hate the fact that almost everyone in my college has hate against disabled people. I'm not handi-cap, but I sometimes feel how terrible it could be to have such a disability.

13 Scary Spaces

Haunted houses can be scary but actually in some country"s they banned haunted houses woo hoo good for them but if your wondering why they got banned well I'll tell you because it is startling and it can give old people heart attacks. In 2011 in those country's people protested for haunted houses to open back up.

I've honestly never been a scary-stuff fan. So, I don't really know what its like to enjoy horror, but I know I despise it very much.

14 Clowns

Clowns have paint on their faces you have no idea who the crap they are. And like their red cheeks are the scariest. Ronald McDonald scared the crap out of me when I was younger...

I absolutely hate clowns, but I'm not afraid of them. They literally wear weird clothes, face paint, and wigs. Plus they frighten people. Whoever invented clowns must not like kids. - Powerfulgirl10

I'm fine with the fun goofy ones but the deadly ones scares the cheap out of me

I hate Clowns I once had a dream where I was locked in a car and these clowns with Knifes and Chainsaws started to break in in order to kill me, After that day I was scared to life

15 Spiders

Spiders are the scariest things ever! Last year (In fourth grade) I went on a field trip with my P.A.C. (Program for academic challenge) friends, and we were going on a nature walk. We were picking things off the trail, and putting them in little containers so we could look at them through microscopes. So, my friend Emma (Who like isn't afraid of anything) picks up this spider, and wants me to hold the container open so she could put it in. I thought she might just leave it because I was obviously like 'no way! ' but she didn't. She found someone else, and got the spider in the container. Then, when we got back from our 'nature walk' we got microscopes. Emma put the spider under the microscope, and for some reason, I was brave enough to look at it. IT TOTALLY FREAKED ME OUT. There were huge eyes, so many legs, and it was hairy! The spider even blinked! It was the scariest thing I've ever seen. (Sorry my story was kind of long)

I had a dream last night. Scary as hell. I mean, the spiders' asses were the size of an ashtray or like, a plate! I was scared to death. But, nonetheless, I woke up and saw online that this meant I am a dominant female figure, or motherly. Something like that. But, I still get scared if I see a giant spider in my room...

Oh my God! I used to be TERRIFIED of them as a kid. I'm going to regret saying this in the future, but thanks to my bug fear, I woke up in the middle of the night and wet the bed around fifteen minutes later or so when I was 9. Luckily I'm over my fear now. I'm used to spiders. - Powerfulgirl10

I like letting them crawl all over me sometimes - AutumnRobbins

They created SCARY MOVIES that will get you to hope you make it to daylight. - booklover1

Humans are the scariest thing on Earth. Pretty much anyone could kill you in a hundred ways at any given moment because they feel like it. Humans are capable of a lot of horrible things.

Its terrifying I wont even watch a trailer for one! I made that one mistake of watching a trailer for one...i had lots of nightmares...

I just trust Jesus and that he will keep me safe from evil forces.

20 Creepy Crawlies

Spiders terrify me. Maybe it's the eyes or the legs but if I see a spider I will scream my head off.

Kids call me retarded for not brushing off house spiders. Actually sliders rarely bite Pepe unless they feel threatened. Nobody can call me stupid for not killing an animal who's just trying to get by. I am a weird kid because I love anything that freaks people out.

They freak the crap out of me mainly because of the legs they are long and freaky but when they crawl on you it feels weird I have had an arachnid climb on me it was a tick

Bugs used to scare me a lot, but I'm glad I'm over that because it ruined my soccer life. - Powerfulgirl10
