Top Ten Things That Scare People Most


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Vomiting

I hate this so much, but I'm not scared of it. It's literally food (or something else) coming out of your throat. It's especially embarrassing if it happens in public or in class (It happened to me in preschool once.) - Powerfulgirl10

When ever I vomit I'm all like OH GOD I don't WANT TO DIE! Unless I'm at school at school thank you god I want to go home

I did this at school while I was taking my semester exam. It was dead silent, and all of a sudden I vomited. - Mellbell

Since I was in 2nd grade for some reason vomit is the scariest thing ever. Even in movies at my friends house I would awkwardly ask if there is vomit in the. movies and there like I don't know. I beg them to change it to another movie or show. I only watch movies or episodes I know there is none. its sad because all these movies like pitch perfect, everyone loves but has vomit in it.

22 Getting Arrested When You Don't Break the Law

A man in my area was thrown behind bars for a murder that he didn't commit. He was sentenced to life, but got out in 22 years time.

Yep, a lot of people are thrown into jail, prosecuted, and treated unfair mostly based on their race, gender,and skin color. I myself haven't been to lucky having a person threaten to call the cops on me since I lied and joked about being "Russian"

23 War

Millions of people die over dramatic reasons. - Powerfulgirl10

God is above war in a scary list? What the heck?

Yes because people you love could die

I heard North Korea is threatening Guam with missiles. World war 3 is nigh!

24 Making other people sad/scared because of you
25 Noises In the Woods

There's a woods quite near to my house. In the Summer, me and my friends take our bikes up to the woods and eat our picnic in this little clearing. It doesn't seem to bother my friends, but all the noises in there really creep me out and I often end up leaving before them!

My house is in the wood and it scares me because you can hear someone walking outside when there is no one out there

My house in in the woods and this is only scary in the dark

Why would you be in the woods Anyway

26 Xbox One

More like the Call of Duty kid fanbase.

What? How can you be scared of a game console? - Powerfulgirl10

What the hell?

I love xbox

27 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

"Bad@ss crawlies" suit them more - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

28 Demons Watching You

"Whom shall I fear? I know who goes before me, I know who stands behind. The God of angel armies is always by my side. The One who reigns forever, He is a friend of mine. The God of angel armies is always by my side." -Whom Shall Fear, Chris Tomlin

A song that always gets me through thoughts like these - keycha1n

Just looking at their face gave me chills.

I'm not afraid of this to be honest. Because I know God is watching over me. I know Jesus is scaring the demons off and my guardian angel is with me. No reason to be scared of them if Jesus is with you.

That's it! I'm getting a cross rather than this creep going to look at me in my soul.

29 Thunder and Lightning

They look so freak ing bad@ss, but getting near can be pretty terrifying. A lightning struck right in front of me one time. I'm lucky I'm inside my house - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

I'm really tall this tearfys me

30 Slithering Snakes

I actually got a chance to observe a snake when I was little because I found in it my house, but I was a coward back then, and I made my family kill that little guy. I don't think I'm gonna get another chance... - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

Not that I think so, but some people get so freaked out (I actually love snakes and animals and I simply can't understand why people get so scared)

Some are poisonous and cause a painful death... Avoiding them is just natural instinct! - VADERtheIMPALER

Some are cool, like and Ekans/Arbok/Seviper etc. but only from a distance.

31 Loneliness

I'm not scared of this, but I do hate it. I'm pretty much the only girl in fifth grade who gets into fights with the other girls over a pointless game they play (where they run around and scream their heads off) and the Vice principal calling my parents. I'm not even trying to be mean, I'm just stating my opinion (but I might be doing it wrong since I sound mean when doing it.) - Powerfulgirl10

" true, I get scared of everything. I feel things around me, People think I'm crazy. But I see things passing by me. ( Well everyone. )

32 Jeff the Killer Jeff the Killer Jeff the killer is a creepypasta usually accompanied by a picture of a white face looking in to the camera smiling in an unsettling manner . The creepypasta is also usually accompanied by the term "Go to sleep" .

My friend showed me his face during a sleepover once. The other guy ran away while I put my face in a pillow

I'm not scared of him. Someone literally put a dog face on him. - Powerfulgirl10

The Screamer needs to go to sleep. So annoying and loud! - computerfan0

Pffft! Can't believe people are afraid of him - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

33 Harrowing Heights

I'm not scared of heights, but it makes me paranoid when I hear someone falls off a high place or when people are at buildings and lean over glass railings or whatever they're called. If it's just the height of a house or when you're swinging it's okay, but a skyscraper or mountain might freak people out. - Powerfulgirl10

I hate being really high up. No thank you. I have a fear because if I stand near an edge, I'm afraid someone's going to push me. - Pegasister12

I love standing on top of mountains, looking down and thinking "I'm going to die." - AnonymousChick

I can't believe I used to Love heights.

34 Having People Hate You

Humans are social creatures, we are not equipped to survive alone. Laws are meant to protect the individual but they are implemented by people. What if people hated you so much that they stopped thinking of you as human and not only refused to help you in any way but they felt justified in doing anything they liked to you?

My friends at school might be neutral to me because of the fights we get into, but I might be wrong. Most people n my class like me, but only a few people hate me. I do not want to be hated so much that people neglect me or don't care about me. Because that would be scary. - Powerfulgirl10

This one combines the worst of being hurt by people you love, failing and scary people!

I don't care if people hate me. They can hate me all they want, but I always know I'm better than them. - LordDovahkiin

Worst thing happening to anyone.

36 Snakes Snakes Snakes are elongated, legless, carnivorous reptiles of the suborder Serpentes that can be distinguished from legless lizards by their lack of eyelids and external ears.

There kinda cool in my opinion, but I understand how people could be scared of them. Kinda like spiders, some people think there cool, some people would like to rip their heads off. - SansTheComic

Snake are cool I remember when I was five years old I got to hold a milk snake that was six years ago

I understand snakes can be terrifying, but they're twice on this list... - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

Depends on the type of snake - Neonco31

37 Mirrors

I know totally! Mirrors are creepy! What if something's in there? What if Bloody Mary is real? You never know...

" I had a video camera, around my mirror on the hallway, and it feels very creepy seeing things move around. When no one there. "

I heard two of my friends tried the Bloody Mary trick in the boys bathroom and the lights went off then back on. It literally scared them. - Powerfulgirl10

OK, I'm TOTALLY FREAKED OUT right now! Mirrors are the scariest things in the world! Have you heard about Bloody Mary? Or Baby Blue? Or Candy Man? And if you haven't, you're SUPER DUPER LUCKY. And by now, you can probably guess that they ALL come out of mirrors! So that means that YOU can summon them INTO YOUR OWN HOUSE! Or whatever place that you're in! And that ALSO includes: Your friend's house

Your relative's house

Your school bathroom

A public bathroom

AND EVEN YOUR OWN HOUSE OR ANY, YES ANY, PLACE WITH A MIRROR! And JUST IN CASE YOU DIDN'T KNOW, Bloody Mary, Baby Blue, and Candy Man are ALL REAL! Yes people, 980,986548709,0000000 percent REAL!

Yes people, REAL! Sorry for so many exclamation points, but I needed to tell you that THEY ARE ALL REAL. Also, if you try ...more

38 Hearing Voices

The feeling when you are home alone, but you hear somebody calling your name.

If it's voices in your head...I always listen to it...

But if it's a ghostly like one that everyone can hear, scream like you've never scream before :/

I guess what I'm truly scared of is losing a grip on reality. It's a scary prospect for me, but it may be why I'm so fascinated by the mind. - keycha1n

That's creepy in real life, but in your head is okay. - Powerfulgirl10

Please don't think I'm weird, but I think the anonymous masks are HILARIOUS. The moustache, the eyes, and those cheekbones though! Sorry, but these people are pretty funny.

40 Public Speaking

I've always been a really awkward. Public speaker, I'm even awkward just talking to one person I don't know well. I am good at English, but put me in front of a group of people and I suddenly become illiterate.

This isn't even scary because in all my life I never got shy, bashful, nervous, or etc. so I basically never get nervous or bashful or any of those feelings so it is easy to speak in public

My name is at the start of the alphabet so I always go first during presentations. It is the worst. - AnonymousChick

I really like talking to people, I'm very social.
