Do you think everything should remain the same, feel that traditional customs are the only way, resent change in system and don't want to accept things you don't understand just because it's different? NEOPHOBIA! This is common among older folk that aren't as open minded as young folk; also common amongst small towned people who've never really experienced change. Most common among people who are brick walls and want everything their way.

  • I dont really know if i have trypophobia, but i just dont like looking at those things. Im not getting itchy or anything, but i just usually scroll down fast to avoid them. So maybe i have it lol.
    I dont have any other phobias on this page.
    But if when i saw these pictures of carnivorous plants at first, i kinda had the same reaction as with trypophobia. I know they can't eat humans, but still :P
    www.carnivorousplants.org/cp/images/Dionaea1.jpg

    Also, i have another weird phobia.. Please dont laugh about it. I have a phobia for butterflies lol.
    Now, i dont really mind the white butterflies, theyre not really scary to me, but still i dont like being in their presence. But those colourful butterflies really make me itch and sweet, i usually take a different route to walk, if i see some butterflies sitting on a bush next to the place i have to walk.. I really hate this phobia, and its even worse cus my brother and dad are making fun of it whenever we see one. Luckily my mum doesn't. But other them, nobody else knows about my butterfly phobia :3

    Again writing a novel lol

  • I don't have any of these phobias at all.

    I have been single my entire life and I'm ready to get with a girl and have sex but I get rejected every time. Thank God I'm not an anuptaphobic, or I would be in a paralyzing fear all the time.

  • when i read '10 phobias you probably have' i was actually expecting to see phobias actually had. not 10 completely random phobias. i've never heard of anyone who had a fear of appliances, a fear of beautiful women or even a fear of being single. but these are supposed to be things i 'probably have'? you are a retard.

    • I didn't want to go for really obvious phobias but at the same time I wanted to be things that do happen to a lot of people unepectedly. Trypophobia and Caulphobia are actually really common. The title doesn't say "Phobias you have", You've got to remember you aren't the only person on the planet. The single one is somewhat common but people who have it wouldn't call it a fear.

    • Thanks for calling me a retard! *sarcasm*

  • Nope, I don't have any of them. xD
    Fear of household appliances? How do people with it cook and clean? O. o

    ''Oh crap, the kettle is brewing''

    ''Errmmm, that's what it's supposed to do?''

    ''It is? Oh, my bad.''

    • I just get paranoid sometimes.

    • If it was a phobia you'd be scared shitless by it.
      So, you're right 😂

    • I was literally cringing and itching like crazy trying to find trypophobia pictures.

    • It's so horrible.
      Weird holes and spiders. DESTROY AT ALL COSTS!
      I think spiders also overlap with trypophobia because of their weird eyes... now I have to sit cross-legged because I'm thinking about spiders crawling up my legs.
      LOOK WHAT YOU'VE DONE!

      (._. )
      ( ._.)
      (o_o)

      I'm scared, hold me.

  • TRYPOPHOBIA

  • My cousin and I both have a form of automatonopobia, the fear of anything that falsely represents a living breathing thing. For us, mannequins, taxidermy etc. all freak us out. She is absolutely terrified of statues of Santa Claus, not even kidding.

    After seeing a petrified cat, that got hit by a train when I was little, I'm scared of one picture on the internet. Every time my brother has brought it up, I burst into tears and start to hyperventilating, its so scary.

    The first one on this thread creeped me out as well.

  • The picture for 9 haha XD
    No, I don't have any of those fears but I love how in 1, they used the flowers to put on the person. I'm so tired of seeing the little black balls coming out of nipples all over the internet. If people share thinking it's true, an email should be sent to prospective colleges!

    But no, none of those things really really scare me.

  • I have none of them. I'm sure this was a joking Take. If you said arachniphobia (spelled wrong, too lazy to look it up) or fear of heights, then sure.

    But I can still kill spiders as long as they're not the size of a man's hand and I would be willing to jump out of a plane.

  • I think it's pretty obvious if you have a true phobia. If you have a phobia, you know it! It isn't something someone can tell you you have, you just know it.
