10 Phobias that you didn’t know existed

So, I was looking up phobia’s, and I found a Wikipedia page listing them, and here are my top 10 favorites:

1: Barophobia:

The fear of gravity. I’ve never met anyone afraid of gravity, or afraid of suddenly floating upward, but I did think this one was funny

2: Chronophobia:

The fear of time. Afraid of time? Never heard that. You can’t stop time!

3: Coulrophobia- Fear of Clowns

This one I’ve known, but I’ve never known the name… I can see how clowns could be scary to some people.

4: Cyberphobia:

The fear of technology. Probably most grandparents (not mine, of course).


Fear of Friday the 13th. I can see that.

6: Hexakosioihexekontahexaphobia:

Fear of the number 666, the number of the beast. I just love the long word.

7: Nomophobia:

Fear of no cell service. This just made me laugh so hard.

8: Sesquipedalophobia:

The fear of long words. What made me laugh for this one was how the word describing it is actually pretty long.

9: Acrophobia

The fear of heights. Did you know that was the name for it?

And finally, my favorite of all time:

10: Phobophobia

The fear of fear itself or the fear of developing a phobia. How can someone be afraid of fear? I can see someone being afraid of developing a phobia, in which case they already have, but the fear of being afraid? You can’t be afraid of being afraid, because you already are!

I hope you enjoyed my list of my favorite phobia’s, which also counts as my narration for school today, I just was thinking about phobia’s one day and found this on Wikipedia!
