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

I have Anatidaephobia and there is a duck in my window

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

They're not scared of the words themselves, they're scared of not being able to pronounce them

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)

your dum

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!

This is dumb

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

My nan has this

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

It's so dumb, its funny!

The Contenders

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

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.

The commentary is golden

14 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

I am confusion

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.

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

It's just a number

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

16 Medomalacuphobia (fear of losing an erection)

It's gotta go sometime!

I have spent over $3,000 in Viagra in the past 8 months, I have had an erection for the past 8 months as well, I just take like 6 of them before I go to bed each night and I wake up each morning with my erection still there.

This is stupid

I have this phobia and it is very stressfull. I buy more viagra than water.

17 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.

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

I actually have this. t h e a g o n y

19 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.

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

I am gonna starve then

V 2 Comments
20 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

This fear isn't stupid. When you're afraid of water, it means your afraid to swim. You can still drink and bath you just don't wanna swim in water.

Hydrophobia is more a chemical reaction in chemistry, and another term for rabies.

I think you mean Aquaphobia.

46 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

47 Halitophobia (the fear of bad breath)

Better brush your teeth! 😛

48 Thanatophobia (fear of death)

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

I feel like most people have this. - Sepron64

I heard a kid has this and he dug his eyes out with a spoon

Fear of the illuminati

How would you look at this to diagnose yourself if you hated your eyes(and had probably already dug them out)
