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

Hydrophobophobia (Fear of Hydrophobia)

Basically, people are scared of people who are scared of water. But are THEY scared of water? But what if they aren't and hydrophobophobic people are just anticipating? But what if they're RIGHT? But what if they don't know that they're hydrophobic? Then what? Does it mean that they're scared for no reason or they aren't?

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.

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!

How the heck did anyone come up with this. This is so stupid

Phobophobia (Fear of Fear Itself)

Aren't you just inflicting the fear on yourself then? You're basically cause your own misery.

This would make life quite the nightmare, I imagine.

Rather self-inflicted if you fear it!

Illusion of the infrared consciousness

Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia (Fear of Long Words)

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

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

I have a fear of long words this word is creeping me out stop making fun of people's fears

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

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

Basically the fear of something you like in your mouth but it stays in there in a place where you can touch it but can't move it out (sex joke).

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?

When I was younger, I refused to eat peanut butter and jelly because it stuck to the roof of my mouth. maybe I had this phobia? although I don't think I was fearful of it, mostly annoyed.

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

Anatidaephobia (Fear of Being Watched by a Duck)

Me sitting and enjoying the view.
Someone across the pond screams and runs away.
I run back and lock myself in my car because I thought there was a serial killer on the loose.
When I learn what really happened. 😠😠

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?

Once you think about it, this might actually be creepy.
Somewhere in the world a duck is watching you...

My brother has a fear of being watched by an owl ever since he watched this one horror movie...

Panophobia (Fear of Everything)

This phobia isn't weird, it sounds terrifying.

This would make for a pretty sad life.

Imagine having Panophobia and Phobophobia! Agony!

This actually exists?!

Autophobia (Fear of Oneself)

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

That would be unbelievably awkward!

This one doesn't make sense either

Papaphobia (Fear of the Pope)

I don't like our pope he is antipope

Now I hate popes but who would be afraid of a cathlic

Why? What is it about him?

I have this

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.

Is this a reference to Friday the 13th

I swear I can't even look at it

Trypophobia (Fear of Holes)

This is not weird. I have a genuine fear of disturbingly compressed holes. Not only that but I have both the fear of big and small holes. Just holes in general. This who comment sounds like a sex joke.

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

Not weird, it's disturbing

I can't stand some holes

The Contenders

Luposlipaphobia (The Fear of Being Pursued by Timber Wolves Around a Kitchen Table Whilst Wearing Socks on a Newly Waxed Floor)

(Yes, this is a real fear.)

Dextrophobia (Fear of Objects to Your Right)

This is really weird
What's the fear of objects to your left

Left handed people probably have this

Um, what kind of phobia is this?

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

Mastophobia (Fear of Breasts)

Get away from me with your giant knockers woman, don't you know I suffer from mastophobia?!

What if you're a woman and you have this phobia?

I feel very, VERY, very bad for whoever has this

The idea of this really cracks me up

Ombrophobia (Fear of Rain)

Starts spitting
Person: AH OMG ITS RAINING GET INSIDE!
Friend: Dude it’s just like one drop every minute we’re fine.
Person: (already sprinting and top speed down to the nearest building, screaming so everyone within 1000 feet can hear.)
Friend: (calls 911) Please help me.

I imagine this would be only slightly easier on the mind than phobophobia.

Nintendophobia (fear of Nintendo Video Games)

Nintendo is the best like this if u agree

This is something a Karen would have.

Xbox gamers have this, probably

I love nintendo :D

Aurophobia (Fear of Gold)

This is like having the fear of wealth or something.

Heliophobia (Fear of Sunlight)

Although I doubt this is a common fear, it'd be a nightmare to have

Scriptophobia (Fear of Writing in Public)

Instead of speaking in public

1 of the 8 cardinal sins if you ask me, lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy, pride, and writing in public.

Bannaphobia - Fear of Bannas

They are so scary! Even scarier than apples!

They are scary

Bannas? What's a banna?

What's a banna again?

Xanthophobia (Fear of the Colour Yellow)

Hi. I think I may know someone who suffers terribly with this...

Maybe this is because they are also scared of bananas.

How dare you (don't take this serious)

This color looks pretty though.

Arachnophobia (Fear of Spiders)

I see a spider, and I am screaming until 2 hrs later THE SPIDER IS STILL THERE I do more screaming again. I think this fear is totally reasonable, I D K why its even in 'Top ten weirdest phobias'

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.

Call me a wimp, but I can't stand being around Spiders. Being afraid of bugs and Arachnids isn't even out of the ordinary when it comes to phobias either.

This isn't very weird. It's basically the most common phobia, more common than acrophobia, fear of heights.

Lipophobia (Fear of Becoming Fat)

Don't we all have this to a degree?

Ideophobia (Fear of Ideas)

If I had this, I'd be completely messed up.

I would be nothing if I had this.

When you have no idea at all.

Now this... Is crazy

Somniphobia (Fear of Falling Asleep)

This can be somewhat understandable though, depending on situations.

Like, wouldn't you die from sleep deprivation?

Another kind of insomnia?

That. Would. Be. A. Nightmare

Genophobia (Fear of Knees)

I think this is a lot weirder than fear of becoming fat.

Yes, this is real.
