  • I'd say spiders. A 'real' phobia is where the phobic object causes disproportional fear and anxiety in your life, to the point that you go to extreme lengths to avoid coming into contact with it. I do that with spiders. Like even little harmless ones where the appropriate response is ignore or move them, I'll be backing up as far as possible, shaking, crying and if there's one in the bedroom that we haven't managed to find and remove, I won't sleep in the room.

  • Yes. I have a fear of commitment. I am what you would call a "commitmentphobe." I can't commit to people because I fear of ending up in a relationship just like my parents. This is why I subconsciously continue to go after f*ckboi's because I know that despite my longing of a normal and healthy relationship, I fear it won't last so I go for a "relationship" that is bound to end in failure.

    • Ha! When has a Scorpio ever been dangerous to you? You're generally courteous and kind to people on here. All you're ever likely to get from a Scorpio in response to that is warm, goofy, and playful...

    • @AhGojira No, I mean the image of the scorpio itself is dangerous. Just like how you showed it in that picture. :P

      Aww thank you very much.
      That is an honor to me. ^-^

  • I am Extremely afraid, of Totem Poles or just Native American art. I love the History though I passed out from being around one. I had a dream about them and woke up in hot sweats. Pueblo art does nothing though. I live In Washington so they are everywhere. When I was 6 I had a very imaginative mind, I've always had one. Eagle ones scare me and their creepy faces. Even the word gives me a fucking panic attack.

    • National Treasure? And I trust a smile if it reaches their eyes, But i never trust a fake one :P

    • I smile with my eyes. National Treasure is supringsly a Disney Movie it is really good though.

  • I have coulrophobia, a fear of clowns. I was brought onto the stage at the circus when I was 5 and the clowns scared me so much I fainted...
    I also have claustrophobia, fear of small spaces. I got stuck in a crawl space in my grandmas house when I was about 7. No one found me for 6 hours, we were playing hide and seek..

  • I'm have social anxiety and a bunch of phobias (with no logical explanation to go along with them...)
    Here's a list of them, I know they all have names but I'm way too lazy to look them up:
    Insects- particularly anything that flies or 'scuttles'
    Birds
    Dogs
    Heights
    Bellybuttons (I know this one 'cuz it's weird- ornithophobia, I believe)
    Feathers
    Internal organs of any sort (more grossed out than afraid but I still consider it one of my phobias)
    Anything related to my social anxiety- walking by strangers, talking on the phone, presentations, speaking up, etc.
    Fish
    Small animals (rats, mice, etc)

    I consider all of the above to be my phobias because about 85% of the time there'll be a panic attack associated with them, whenever I see/go near them. For the animals: only when they're not in a zoo or something.

    • Glad I'm not alone haha! The bird/feather thing actually does have an explanation- I've been attacked by birds twice (apparently I've completely exaggerated my memories of the experiences, according to my parents. Funny how that works.) But yeah other than that, definitely weird.

    • Not really scarred of birds, Just thinking of the feathers in my mouth freaks me out :(

  • None that i know of...

    • I was practically closing my eyes... OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG! They're going to fall, they're going to die! ... and they were just smiling there stupid little mounts off bending forward as if they didn't want to fall off the cliff.

      Not to get off topic, LOL! What was more irritating, lol, was the group of people that were talking around the only bench, but not actually sitting in it like a little human fence AND THEY looked at me like I WAS CRAZY when I practically pushed them out of the way and sat down on it becasue I was a tad bit tired! I'm like thinking in my head "are these people stupid?"

    • OH XD that was at the grand canyon too of course not to long after the crazy cliff picture people.

      I'm scared of the balloons popping, so I give you thato one is weird.
