Who could have an abnormal fear of cats? Or a fear of sitting down? If you live in your parents basement you may have this one (or several). Better not go to the nursing home if you have this one. Conspiracy anyone?

I have some abnormal fears but not on this list. I have a fear of heights, fear of dark water, fear of spiders, fear of bridges, fear of flying, fear of germs just to name a few.

The list below was just some that I came across why researching a word. Just thought it would be fun to share.


www.merriam-webster.com...

Kinesophobia - Pathological fear of motion

Kathisophobia - Fear of sitting down

Aichmophobia - A morbid fear of sharp or pointed objects (such as a needle or a pointing finger)

Amaxophobia - Fear of being in or riding in a vehicle

Ailurophobia - Abnormal fear of cats

Amathophobia - Fear of dust

Hypengyophobia - Abnormal fear of responsibility

Toxiphobia - Abnormal fear of poisons or of being poisoned

Ochlophobia - Morbid fear of crowds

Ideophobia - Fear or distrust of ideas or of reason

Fear of reason?

So... an aversion to the objective, presumably in favor of the subjective, is a mental disorder?

Hmm...

Arachnophobia who isn’t afraid of spiders?
The people who like spiders freak me out more than the spiders.

I understand spiders perform a function but they still freak me out!!!!

We all fear lack and loss--Buddha called it Dukkha.

We all attack others, when we fear they might attack us.
At the root of all these fears is the fear of lack and loss.

This is the source of most people's "suffering" or anxiety.
It is all about what the subconscious mind is telling us,
and how we respond to that insecure "self-talking" ego.

This seems to be on the verge of an epidemic here on ATS. Especially on the political threads.

Snakes don't freak me out as bad as spiders. I avoid snakes but I run from spiders.
