Top 10 Stupidest Phobias


The Top Ten

1 Anatidaephobia (the fear of somewhere, somehow a duck watching you)

The ducks are watching...

I mean that's pretty stupid. But when you think about it... It's kind of really scary to have that in your mind all the time. :I

The fact I can get it right away with a lot more to come back and I don't think that it was not immediately available to comment on the way I am so excited to be able and willing and able to do it again I have a great way of saying it is not an issue of whether it was not immediately available to comment on the way I am sure you think I can get it right away with the same thing to say it was not a fan since I got to see you soon enough for you and your not going to be the first half of the day before I can be found at a time when you are not going anywhere near me I was in oops the obest ois in my room for a long way toward an amazing voice of reason she is not an easy to play the piano lessons and a few years and years in the morning to all my life and the way to the point where you are the only thing that would have to go back and I don't think that I have a great way of the day after a few weeks and of of it and morythe on a train and a ggreat to say I don't give me some more and ...more

The funniest phobia in my opinion.

2 Hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia (fear of long words)

The fear of long words, see the irony

Fear of Hippopotamus, Fear of Monsters, Fear of Equipping, Fear of Education, Fear of Phobias

You are going to live a sad, sad life.

I'm so afraid of long words I can't even say my phobia, that guy just said a big word I think I might die. - FrankP

The irony in this poem is... mmm hilarious. Imagine haveing the phobia and walking into your doctor's office and him saying, "you have Hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia" you would be like...,"AGHH"

3 Panphobia (the fear of everything)

This is highly unusual. I can imagine having panphobia/panophobia. Being scared of everything... Your house, your mom, the street, animals, food, water, light, dark, sleeping, your hands, going to the restroom, your clothes, paper, of yourself... Every single thing. How can you live through this?

Really?! Who has this?! And how can you live like this?! It's STUPID! So what do they do all day and how can they live?! Like really?! Can you even live like this?

Listen, people who have this might have an Anxiety Disorders, so please control your mouth. - GirlyAnimeLover

How do you survive? Frankly you should have a panic attack so bad it causes a heart attack, and if that doesn't happen there's a thousand other ways you can die (not breathing, not eating, not drinking, not sleeping etc)

Isn't this general anxiety disorder? - LemonComputer

4 Arachibutyrophobia (the fear of peanut butter sticking to the roof of your mouth)

for me, it's more of a pet peeve than a phobia

Yeah, this is stupid, (no offense to people who have this phobia) - Alpha101

Laugh out loud my friend just told me she has this phobia and ah loves peanut butter! Ironic!

That has happened to me, it feels weird but not scary. It sounds like a person who has Arachibutyrophobia would be SCARRED FOR LIFE!

5 Paraskavedekatriaphobia (the fear of Friday the 13th)

This superstition has its origins in Christianity. On the last supper that was on Friday, there were 13 people on the table ( Jesus and his 12 apostles ). One of them was a traitor ( Judas ). That's why many people still believes that this day is a day of bad luck.

Only for superstitious people.

Only superstitious people have this fear

6 Deipnophobia (the fear of having a dinner conversation)

So... You don't talk at dinner? If someone starts a conversation you'll run screaming?

I know I don't want people to talk about embarrassing stories to other people in front of me...

What if you just communicated dish you will not speak? And instead of speaking you will just use sign language? Laugh out loud that's so damn funny.

Are they also afraid of having a breakfast conversation? If not, what's the difference?

7 Pteronophobia (the fear of being tickled by feathers)

I guess a lot of people don't like being tickled, but an actual phobia that's something else.

I'm scared of ANYTHING touching my neck. Literally, if I'm laying down on grass I have to get up because the grass touched my neck :/ probably because I'm insanely sensitive and get extremely aroused if anyone even strokes my neck. and people wonder why I wear a scarf inside - SansTheComic

Ill have fun touching these people with my handy dandy feather

This actually makes sense though. So not stupid.

8 Agyrophobia (the fear of crossing the street)

The duck does not have this

What if your mom asked you to buy drugs cause she need it, and you need to cross the street you will not follow her?

Boy isn't it a great day to be a chicken

Thanks for mocking my personal hell. you're all a bunch of ass holes.

9 Phobophobia (fear of fear)

As soon as the slightest bit of fear hits you which is instantly it won't stop.

Once you get scared, you get stuck in an eternal paradox of fear.

You would be forever scared

Best phobia yes very science much fear such scurred wow

Pretty much everyone is affraid of their mother-in-law. it's not their fault that they don't want to be eaten alive. ;D

Everyone is afraid of their mother-in-laws...

That is completely normal in most people

Everyone is afraid f their m-i-l - GirlyAnimeLover

12 Ithyphallophobia (the fear of seeing, thinking about or having an erect penis)

If you're a man and you have this, then you're sick! I love getting erections! - XX_Hydra-Virus-9860_XX

I don't know what is wrong with men, even my ex-boyfriend hate having sexual stuff - GirlyAnimeLover

If a man has an erection, he usually loves it. I LOVE getting one.

13 Trypophobia (fear of holes)

Hey honey would you like to hangout in the bed room... AH GET THAT THING AWAY FROM ME

I have this phobia and it's HORRIFYING. If you don't know why and think it's stupid, search it up.

Have a good day.

This phobia doesn't exist. People who claim that they have it don't even what a phobia even is. Of course pics of trypophobia are disgusting/unsettling, but it's common sense to cringe at those pics, just like seeing people with serious physical diseases, or the Crocodyl drug effects on skin, I feel very unsettled when I see pics of those, but that's common sense.

Then can you not eat food? Clean yourself? Look around, your body is FULL of holes!

15 Hexakosioihexekontahexaphobia (fear of the number 666)

It's not stupid. 666 is meant to be "The number of the Devil" or as some people I remember used to call it "Hells area code" these names seem stupid but the fear is very real.

It's just a number

I don't blame them. 666=Illuminati confirmed. - XX_Hydra-Virus-9860_XX

16 Mageirocophobia (the fear of cooking)

This would be terrible I'd never make my shrimp scampi again if I had this and I still need practice.

Then you will either starve or eat so much fast food you have a heart attack

How can you eat? Unless you buy your food then you will be homeless on the street!

I am gonna starve then

17 Chrometophobia (fear of money)

This is SO ironic considering the people who would do anything for money.

Seriously? Laugh out loud every people need money, and some people are willing to die just to have money.

How can that be true some one running away from money it might be though

OH the IRENAHH! - Pokemonfan10

20 Emetophobia (the fear of vomit)

Believe it or not, I have this phobia and so do three of my friends. Every time I'm ready to throw up, I feel like it's the end of the world. Thank goodness I hardly ever feel nauseated, or as medically defined, an unpleasant sensation in the abdomen. - RockFashionista

I have this phobia, and its horrible! My friends sometimes sneak behind me and make a vomiting sound and laugh when I run away.

Not that stupid but it happens and every time someone throws up you run like your dying?

I find vomit very frightening. It is just so disgusting how it comes out of your mouth and is so many colors and smells and sounds. Gross!
