Top Ten Fears People Have


The Top Ten

1 Fear of death

Look at all the rest on this list. Sharks, snakes, heights, spiders, wasps, and vampire bats? Those are scary indeed, but dying is another thing. You literally never know what happens to you when you die or after you die. No one really knows. I have other fears too, but I fear death the most(though it's pretty interesting and you will never be able to avoid it). - supervg123

I don't fear death, just dying in a bad way. - Therandom

I don't have this fear either. It's inevitable, really, so there's no reason to fear it. - keycha1n

I'm too young to die early!

2 Fear of sharks

When ever I go in a pool or the sea I'm always really scared of sharks, it's mainly because of movies such as: Jaws and because if one person gets attacked by one the news is spread really quickly, but it might turn out the man that got "attacked" by a shark just had a shark near him

Fear is in your mind - Mewtwo_

3 Fear of spiders

I used to hold spiders and play with them. Now they're like my worst fear. - Catlover2004

I hate spider even little and teensy weensy ones

4 Fear of snakes

I once died of a snake bite!

I just can't stand snakes

5 Fear of the dark

I'm honestly still a little afraid of the dark and I am 18 years old. It's not the fact that it's dark, it's the fact that you can't see that much. Then the weird faces come to mind. - cjWriter1997

My mind plays tricks on me in the dark. I see things that I am not supposed to see and they scare me out of my mind. - Daviddv0601

I defanetly don't have this fear - Nateawesomeness

6 Fear of wasps
7 Fear of vampire bats
8 Fear of being alone

Is it bad that I like being alone? At family gatherings I'm always away from everyone. At parties I'm also away from everyone too. But if my best friend is there me and him just stay away from everyone and just talk - SirSkeletorThe3rd

I' not afraid to admit this. I'm only human. No one wants to be alone. - Britgirl

Being lonely makes me happy in class. - SamuiNeko

I just started getting terrible nightmares about everyone dying and me being the only one on earth :/ desperately trying to run away from the killer, the disease or fire, (it's a new way to die in every dream -.-) but also hoping they kill you. I don't care about being alone in my room. It's just the thought that you will be totally alone, no one there to help you, or protect you. I kind of have a phobia of close people dying too :/ - SansTheComic

9 Fear of heights

I'm afraid of heights only when it's possible for me to jump or fall, like one time I went high up in the mountains or something, and there was a cliff side that freaked me out because all it takes is one leap and your gone

It's really only when I am looking over a ledge that looks down multiple floors, but, BOY, do heights freak me out then. - BKAllmighty

When I got on a plane I checked my belt 11 but then it was epic!
