Top Ten Weirdest Phobias

These people are scared to death of things like this. I promise you that they are all existent and genuine. What boggles is how they came to be.

Which is the weirdest one, though?

The Top Ten

1 Hydrophobophobia (Fear of Hydrophobia)

Hydrophobia: (I got this from Google) "Word History Hydrophobia is an older term for the disease rabies, and it means “fear of water.”... The name hydrophobia comes from the fact that animals and people with rabies get spasms in their throat muscles that are so painful that they cannot eat or drink, and so will refuse water in spite of being very thirsty." I don't have it, I just thought I would share.

Hydrophobia is fear of vsco girls incase you didn’t know - RoseWeasley

So you’re scared of people that have hydrophobia? Or scared of getting hydrophobia? - Firemist

Are you scared of getting the fear, because I am scared of getting the fear of snakes, so that is understandable if you look farther into it!

2 Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia (Fear of Long Words)

The person who named this is a troll - Votebotingsucks

I can't even pronounce this!

Scientists really like mocking people. - RoseWeasley

Wait, I can form "hippopotamus monstrous equipped daisy phobia" from that

3 Arachibutyrophobia (Fear of Peanut Butter Sticking to the Roof of Your Mouth)

Why? Why do people fear this? - KingSlayer93316

That is weird

LOL! - Firemist

Why Peanut Butter? I know, very sticky, but what about treacle or golden syrup sticking to the roof of your mouth? How does peanut butter make a difference? - PositronWildhawk

4 Phobophobia (Fear of Fear Itself)

LOL... - Firemist

Rather self-inflicted if you fear it! - PositronWildhawk

Illusion of the infrared consciousness - Kevinsidis

5 Anatidaephobia (Fear of Being Watched by a Duck)

I have nightmares about donald duck stalking me...

I love dead ducks

Defiantly this lol

The feeling of being watched is creepy...BUT BY A DUCK!?!?!

6 Autophobia (Fear of Oneself)

That would be unbelievably awkward!

That makes sense if you are not sure what you are going to do - in terms of murder and other essential things...

SO WEIRD! I would never do that, I'm the best on the planet

How would you live with yourself!

7 Panophobia (Fear of Everything)

Imagine having Panophobia and Phobophobia! Agony! - PositronWildhawk

That's oned depressed person!


8 Papaphobia (Fear of the Pope)

I have this

I don't like our pope he is antipope - EliHbk

Get away FRANCIS!

9 Triskaidekaphobia (Fear of the Number 13)

I was born at on the 13th so was my brother and my favorite celeb, her lucky number is thirteen and mine is too!

I think this is the devils lucky number.

10 Dextrophobia (Fear of Objects to Your Right)

So if your scared of the things to your right but then you turn around and suddenly your fine with them and scared of the things you wern't scared of

I read this then looked to my right and my lotion bottle was “looking” right at me

Left handed people probably have this

Um, what kind of phobia is this? - RockFashionista


The Contenders

11 Scriptophobia (Fear of Writing in Public)

13 Nintendophobia (fear of Nintendo Video Games)

Xbox gamers have this, probably - KingSlayer93316

Nintendo is the best like this if u agree

I love nintendo :D

Many Hardcore Gamers have this phobia and it is kind of weird. I could understand the Virtual Boy but not the 64DD or the Wii U. If you Think Pokémon is racist then look at all these First Person Shooter Games which are racist to Arabs, Jews and Africans.The 64DD can easily be fixed using modern day software.
branches of Nintendophobia include Mariophobia,Wiiphobia,Zeldaphobia, Pikaphobia and Miiphobia.I liked a lot of Nintendo's games including the 64DD did not care about the Virtual Boy I own most of Nintendo's consoles including the Wii U. I do not own the 64DD and the reason why is because Nintendophobia is the most common video game related Phobia

This is my fear

Look at the second letter in the first word of this sentence - CrypticMemory

I'm. From the UK and now I'm offended because I have a very large fear of spiders I can't evn look at pictures of spiders

It's reasonable in places like Brazil and Australia, where it probably originated, so I wouldn't say Arachnophobia was all that weird. It wouldn't be reasonable in places like the UK, where spiders are harmless, but in tropical places, fearing spiders is rational. - PositronWildhawk
