In Psychology we speak about: substantiated Fear versus un-substantiated Fear aka a phobic Disorder,
both a total different cases, symptoms and results!
Fear is the normal and healthy Reaction and lead to a change,
a Phobia is the un-healthy Respond,
because i am not native in English i just copy and paste the answers for you:
A specific phobia is a generic term for any kind of anxiety disorder that amounts to an unreasonable or irrational fear related to exposure to
specific objects or situations.
As a result, the affected persons tend to actively avoid direct contact with the objects or situations and, in severe cases, any mention or depiction
of them. The fear or anxiety may be triggered both by the presence and the anticipation of the specific object or situation.
A person who encounters that of which they are phobic will often show signs of fear or express discomfort. In some cases it can result in a panic
attack. In most cases of adults, this kind of phobia is consciously recognized by the person; still, anxiety and avoidance are difficult to control
and may significantly impair person's functioning and even physical health.
Fear is a distressing negative sensation induced by a perceived threat. It is a basic survival mechanism occurring in response to a specific
stimulus, such as pain or the threat of danger. Fear is apparently a universal emotion; all persons, consciously or unconsciously, have fear in some
In short, fear is the ability to recognize danger leading to an urge to confront it or flee from it (also known as the fight-or-flight response) but
in extreme cases of fear (terror) a freeze or paralysis response is possible.
Some psychologists such as John B. Watson, Robert Plutchik, and Paul Ekman have suggested that fear belongs to a small set of basic or innate
emotions. This set also includes such emotions as joy, sadness, and anger. Fear should be distinguished from the related emotional state of anxiety,
which typically occurs without any certain or immediate external threat. Additionally, fear is frequently related to the specific behaviors of escape
and avoidance, whereas anxiety is the result of threats which are perceived to be uncontrollable or unavoidable.
It is worth noting that fear almost always relates to future events, such as worsening of a situation, or continuation of a situation that is
unacceptable. Fear can also be an instant reaction to something presently happening. All people have an instinctual response to potential danger.
This emotion is described as fear and is inherent in all people.
Fear, whatever its source, can become a controlling factor in a person’s life.
Fear can channel one’s energies away from areas of perceived threats and into directions that seem safe.
