Transcript of The weird world of phobias!

The weird world of phobias! By Kade Sibert Note: Be careful when you go to the section that looks like a P. this section may be offensive to some What on Earth is a phobia? A phobia is a fear of a particular thing. There are many kinds, however, they are split into 2 groups. First, you have rational phobias. These phobias are common. On the other hand, you have irrational phobias, which are much rarer Here are some rational phobias! Claustrophobia- The fear of tight spaces Agoraphobia- Fear of open spaces or crowds Arithmophobia- XD Fear of numbers or math Arachnophobia or Arachniphobia- Fear of spiders Acrophobia, Altophobia, etc. Fear of heights Glossophobia- Fear of speaking in public If you have this one, you better not participate in a play or a civic oration.. XD Since when do spiders make homes in cabinets? Thats a looooooooong way down How did he get stuck in the first place? Must be pretty shy Coulrophobia- Fear of clowns, including evil ones I don't get why many people are scared of clowns. Maybe it's because they arent very funny? Ophidiophobia- Fear of snakes OUCH! cynophobia- Fear of dogs You're most likely scared of them because you abused them and they fought back.. D: Brontophobia or Astrophobia Fear of thunder and lightning SHAZAM! Mysophobia Fear of dirty things, such as germs or dirt Now she knows about germs! And knowing is half the battle! XD Aviophobia- Fear of flying Looks like somebody doesn't want to reach for the skies. Emetophobia- The fear of vomit. Nobody likes vomit, but those with those phobia go to extreme endeavors to avoid it. Because it is one of those things that just make you go BLECH, I shall not show a picture this time. Carcinophobia- Fear of cancer Note: NOT THE ZODIAC SIGN! YUCKY YUCK! :& Oh no! I've touched someone with cancer! Now I'm going to get it even though cancer doesn't spread by touch! Necrophobia fear of death or things related to it Great, now we have to play another game of clue to find out who did this.. Noctiphobia Fear of darkness or night The shadows are coming for YOU! Xenophobia Fear of strangers. To avoid any racism, I will not post picture for this one. Stranger Danger! Stranger Danger! Sociophobia Fear of being negatively judged by others; fear of criticism Now, we go on to the irrational phobias! Ablutophobia Fear of washing or taking a bath If you have this phobia, stay away from people like chef Gordon Ramsey or Simon Cowell [ did I spell that right? ] Quit acting like you're a cat that hates water! Agryophobia Fear of crossing the street The Chicken has this one! XD Autophobia fear of being alone or isolated Forever alone! XD Aichmophobia fear of sharp objects OH NO!!!

D; Papaphobia Fear of the Pope How can anyone be afraid of the Pope? D; Uranophobia Fear of heaven How on Earth could anyone be afraid of this?!?! Porphyrophobia Fear of the color purple.
I DO NOT MEAN THE MUSICAL!!!!! If at first you thought it was the musical, then SHAME ON YOU! Octophobia, Tetraphobia, Etc. Fear of the number that is indicated by the prefix.
Example: Dodecaphobia means you are scared of anything that is related to the number 12. There's a phobia for NUMBERS too?!?! Oikophobia Fear of surroundings around a house Plastic Flamingoes are scary! What are they REALLY made out of? Oneirophobia Fear of dreams Dreams can be such a pain Being scared! Okay, we know a TON of phobias, rational and irrational. One question is, how can somebody stop the phobia? I'm glad you asked! There are several things people do to stop a phobia. These include but are not limited to:
Facing their fear once and for all. This is commonly used for many phobias, such as aviophobia or sociophobia
Trying to avoid their fear completely. Sometimes this is impossible, however it is possible for some.
Going to counseling. Here, people talking about their fears can often make them feel better. Sure, phobias are crazy and strange. However, they help make up somebody's personality. Some are too severe to keep, however. If you have a severe phobia, then either facing your fear or going to counseling will assist. :D So, did I find what you are scared of yet? Or are you one of those tough ones who think they are so great? If you think so, then I WILL FIND YOUR PHOBIA! [evil laugh].
