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?

your dum

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

5 Paraskavedekatriaphobia (the fear of Friday the 13th)

My nan has this

I don't have a fear of Friday the 13th just had an annoying one e.g. I had an epileptic seizure and also had lucky Friday the 13th's. But I don't believe in it everything was a coincidence.

The fear of Jason ( aka. h20 delerios ) Bam these are all made upstupid fears from the maker of this top tens list. Complete lies really. so ye

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.

6 Deipnophobia (the fear of having a dinner conversation)

What is the point of eating with your family then? Like why would you have a phobia like that, it's so weird.

WoW you run as soon as someone starts talking

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...

7 Pteronophobia (the fear of being tickled by feathers)

It's so dumb, its funny!

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

11 Pentheraphobia (the fear of your mother-in-law)

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

That is completely normal in most people

I have actually been diagnosed with this. So for everyone who says it's not a phobia just because you don't have it doesn't mean no one else does

If I look at a hole, I don't find it scary. But google this phobia and have a nice day my friends... if you don't have this phobia you must be sick inside...

15 Hexakosioihexekontahexaphobia (fear of the number 666)

The number 666 is just a number there is no such thing as the mark of the beast get over it.

This is the mark of the beast of the final battle of armageddon. this is sorta of a creepy number

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

V 12 Comments
17 Emetophobia (the fear of vomit)

I have this! I must not see it, smell it, hear sounds of it or similar to it, hear it being talked about, etc. When I feel nauseous, I literally act like a toddler again, crying hysterically, panicking, frantically asking my mom questions, wanting a parent with me for comfort, etc. It really is a miserable phobia to have, especially for someone like me who has severe anxiety.

I think I have this too. I hate it. In one of my schools every body got sick after lunch and I always knew it was the food but nobody cares. I am always scared and I literally want to run away. It is awful... This actually isn't dumb this is real

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.

19 Homophobia (dislike of or prejudice against homosexual people)

So you hate me just because I like someone the same sex as me? Okayyy.. You don't even know me personally. Yes I know it is a sin, but the Bible says that you shouldn't judge anyone. Plus it's a hate crime. You just look at a gay person and decipher my entire like based on how you think I lived my life. But whatever dude. Have a blessed day.

This is not dumb, although its not technically a phobia, some people just dislike gays...


This isn't really a phobia. It's not like homophobes just see a gay man and run screaming. - SammySpore

45 Halitophobia (the fear of bad breath)

Better brush your teeth! ๐Ÿ˜›

46 Thanatophobia (fear of death)

I have this

Did you know that most Religions were created out of fear of death? It's stupid as hell, and a reason why I'm a protestant. Basically in the past, people were scared because they didn't know what death entailed, so they made up Religions like, 'When you die you go to Heaven.' or 'When you die you come back to live on as an animal.'

Thus, learning R.E is an easier way to learn about the way the brain works than Sociology. People don't want to believe that everything they do is for nought when the die, so petty little lies are created and twisted into 'Religion.'

It's a load of bull, especially when you realise most wars are fought over these intricate little lies woven over time.

Believe me or not, I don't really give a damn.

Protestant is a branch of religion in which if you believe you go to heaven and if you don't you go to hell...
(i know I am protestant) - browncad000

I have this. Scariest feeling in the world

This is one of my phobias - blst0033

People are just weird these days I bet that the girls are the only ones with this phobia

I bet boys have this fear too.

You're jealous that other people don't have this phobia.

50 Equinophobia (fear of horses)

I have this. I've always been terrified of horses my whole life, strangely enough I grew up around them. An unpredictable two faced back stabbing creature!

I'm happy I don't have equinophobia, because I would die! I love horses so much and I own some! Good thing I don't have that! I would ruin my life and other's equestrian's lives

I love horses.

Mate ma'a TONGA
