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?

So your afraid of people who are afraid of water?

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!

Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia (Fear of Long Words)

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

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

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.

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).

Well I mean it could be jam or something, then we are in trouble!

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?

Phobophobia (Fear of Fear Itself)

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

Rather self-inflicted if you fear it!

This doesn't make sense

Illusion of the infrared consciousness

Anatidaephobia (Fear of Being Watched by a Duck)

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

Why a duck? Honestly I would be more scared if a cat was glaring at me than a duck

Wait, why a duck? Why not like a bear or something more dangerous?

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

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

This one doesn't make sense either

Panophobia (Fear of Everything)

Imagine the fear of everything on this list...

Imagine having Panophobia and Phobophobia! Agony!

This would make for a pretty sad life.

Fear of everything, WHAT!

Papaphobia (Fear of the Pope)

I don't like our pope he is antipope

Why? What is it about him?

Get away FRANCIS!

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

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

Nintendophobia (fear of Nintendo Video Games)

Xbox gamers have this, probably

Nintendo is the best like this if u agree

This is something a Karen would have.

very scary

The Contenders

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

Left handed people probably have this

Um, what kind of phobia is this?

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

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

Scriptophobia (Fear of Writing in Public)

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

Instead of speaking in public

Bannaphobia - Fear of Bannas

Bannas? What's a banna?


They are so scary! Even scarier than apples!

They are scary

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.

I can't stand some holes

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

This is my fear

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)

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

Oh, I have this. I can act paranoid about going into a room where I've seen at least one spider.

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.

Ombrophobia (Fear of Rain)

Starts spitting
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.

Ideophobia (Fear of Ideas)

Now this... Is crazy

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.

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

Cathisophobia (Fear Of Sitting)

Wha?! I can't even...

Wha the... just wha? What kinda person is afraid of sitting? The heck does that make any sense at all? The hell do they do if if they faint in a chair? Do they just scream their heads out? Just plain what kinda person makes this poo up?

Legs would get tired very fast...

What! What about using the bathroom

Why if I had this I couldn't play video games that's awful

Claustrophobia (Fear of Closed Spaces)

I have this. I get really anxious and worried when I have to go in an elevator

I understand this one!

I hate being in closed spaces

I am a tall person. so if someone put me in a closed space, I SWEAR WITH ALL MY SCORPIO BLOOD I WILL KILL THEM WHETHER THEY KNEW I HAD THIS PHOBIA OR NOT

Omphalophobia (Fear of the Navel)

No ew no

Pentheraphobia (Fear of Step Mother)

Cinderella probably has this

Come on people - you know this phobia came about after Cinderella...

She scares us all to be honest

Well what if your parents divors and you don't WANT step mother?

Demonophobia (Fear of Demons)

Would anyone really want to meet SATAN HIMSELF?!?
This phobia is for Christians and I am one myself

I understand

Lol that's me
