Phobias

The following is a collection of Phobia words, words that end in -phobia, from the Greek for fear or hatred. A phobia is an excessive, unreasonable or irrational fear of an object, place or situation. Phobias are extremely common, and anyone, no matter how well adjusted they are, can fall prey to them. Sometimes they start in childhood for no apparent reason; sometimes they emerge after a traumatic event; and sometimes they develop from an attempt to make sense of an unexpected and intense anxiety or panic. Alarmingly, for just about every object or situation imaginable there seems to be an associated phobia; though fortunately, in most circumstances they are easily cured.

However, the object of this page is reference and entertainment, not medical. Neither is it in any way meant to poke fun at or ridicule those unfortunate enough to suffer such a problem. The following (long) list is merely intended to catalogue the often weird and wonderful names given to phobias and their attendant (sometimes surprising) fears.

(To see the opposite of phobias, go to manias.)
