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.

So your afraid of people who are afraid of water?

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!

What? That's weird. in a good way.

2 Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia (Fear of Long Words)

Well, if you have that, then this item must make you mentally insane. - Firemist

The person who just learnt what he is suffering from had to be taken to a mental hospital

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

You might have thought that they would give it a shorter name to take the pressure off of sufferers. - PositronWildhawk

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

This one is stupid because of dogs. What dog would be afraid of this

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

My friend s name rhymes with duck so we call him ducky. my brother is scared of when he watches him

Okay, this is weird. I don't know about fear of being watched by ducks, but fear of being watched by owls can be creepy. Ever walked through the woods and felt you were being watched? - emraldYE

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...

This one doesn't make sense either

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
