Most of us have some fears, and we've probably heard about some phobias such as:
Agoraphobia- Fear of open spaces or of being in crowded, public places like markets.
And Arachnephobia or Arachnophobia - Fear of spiders
But I had no idea the extent of people fears. Take a look at the list: http://phobialist.com/
Here are just a few examples:
Bogyphobia - Fear of bogeys or the bogeyman
Coulrophobia - Fear of clowns
Dutchphobia - Fear of the Dutch
Ephebiphobia - Fear of teenagers
Hobophobia - Fear of bums or beggars
Koniophobia - Fear of dust. (Amathophobia)
Leukophobia - Fear of the color white
Optophobia - Fear of opening one's eyes
Phobophobia - Fear of phobias
And the list goes on, and on, and on...
