18 Bizarre Phobias that Some People Actually Have
The word Phobia can best be described as an anxiety disorder defined by a persistent and excessive fear of an object or situation. Things that seem normal or trivial to some people may be a panic-inducing issue for others. Some phobias make sense in a broader spectrum like the fear of dying, drowning, clowns, etc, while others (for those who aren't "afraid of them") seem like no big deal such as foods, certain animals, inanimate objects, and more.
Phobias can be formed from a variety of situations such as a traumatic experience involving a specific thing, vicarious fear such as seeing others afraid of something and it impacts how you feel about said topic. Whatever the case may be, it's just another of the many mysteries of the human brain. So check out this list of unusual and bizarre phobias that people have and the medical terminology assigned to them, because after all, we all have something we're afraid of.
