Weird phobias, strange phobias, funny phobias, unusual phobias


Most of the people in the world have a fear of one kind or another. While most people suffer from pathophobia (fear of disease), monophobia (fearof being alone), glossophobia (fear of public speaking),algophobia (fear of pain), taphephobia (fear of being buriedalive), and many more, there are also some less popular phobias.At the end of this essay, I have compiled a list of the phobiasthat I find amusing.

There are many people in the world that suffer from polyphobia,which simply means to have more than one fear. Not so common,people may suffer from antinomial phobias. For example, there aresome people that live with vestiophobia (fear of clothes) andgymnophobia (fear of nudity). Another example is people withachluophobia (fear of darkness) and photophobia (fear of light).

Watch out guys, within the next seven years, you will probablyget married and you will suffer from pentheraphobia, which is oneof the scariest phobias in existence, the fear of your mother-in-law!

Not all phobias have been in existence for thousands of years. I’msure that brontophobia (fear of thunder and lightning),febriphobia (fear of fever), and ophidiophobia (fear of snakes)have existed since the Black Ages. Some of the phobias that haveformed in the last two centuries would be electrophobia (fear ofelectricity), motorphobia (fear of automobiles), and aviophobia (fearof flying). In 1945, a brand new phobia was quickly created andescalated drastically in the 1950’s. It is callednucleomituphobia, which is the fear or nuclear weapons. But that’snot the newest phobia in existence as of today. This threat iscalled cyberphobia (fear of computers). In mild cases, people maybe afraid to use a computer or an ATM. In today’s society,technology is deeply integrated. Computers are used incalculators, cars, microwaves, power tools, and many more. So tothe cyberphobic, I say, “Get over it, or go to the extremeand move away from the city, abandon your car, hand build yourhome, hand pump your water, build your fires, and hunt for yourown food!”

If you have a phobia, there is still hope for you. Phobias can becured. Remember when you were a child and suffered fromclinophobia (fear of going to bed) because of bogyphobia (fear ofthe bogeyman), achluophobia (fear of darkness), and lachanophobia(fear of vegetables). Now chances are good that you go to bedwithout checking your closet or looking under your bed, that youdon’t go ballistic if the lights go out, and that you eat asalad every so often.

Phobias can deeply impact a person’s life. A person withchronophobia (fear of time) probably won’t make it to their10:00AM dentist appointment on time. A person with chaetophobia (fearof hair) is most likely bald, has no eyelashes, no eyebrows, etc.A person with cibophobia (fear of food) usually hasn’t eatenin weeks and could easily be anorexic. This proves how seriousand destructive phobias can be. If you do suffer from any strangephobias, I would suggest calling one-eight-hundred-phobias, forarithmophobics (people who fear numbers) or for logophobics (peoplewho fear words), 1-800-635-1317. This phone number is forentertainment purposes only.

Now on a more serious note, in all the years I’ve lived andall the knowledge I’ve acquired, I can only find one, yesone, valid fear. This fear is called zeusophobia, which is thefear of God. In Heaven, the false phobias are destroyed, but inHell they can be amplified.

I still find it hilarious, though, that these phobias exist,especially since someone must have experienced these fears sothey could be valid phobias. So if you experiencearachibutyrophobia, you’re probably one in a million, butyou’re still out there.
