12 Unusual Phobias

This piece covers the breakdown of majority of the unusual phobias we have: the most bizarre phobia ever seen to affect people in real life.

We are humans, so, it’s normal to show fear in certain times or places. But, your fear becomes irrational and a disorder when it takes total charge of your thinking and makes you unable to do your normal activities. Those with phobic disorder suffer to the extent of avoiding getting in contact with the object of their fear.




Here is a list of weird phobias discovered to have affected people:

Allodoxaphobia

You may want to stay away from people with this condition. Those with Allodoxaphobia are always afraid of other people’s opinions.

Hypnophobia

For about the last five years, I have been afraid of sleeping. I usually end up getting about three hours a night if I am lucky. I have a ton of reoccurring nightmares, and it makes it difficult to go to sleep knowing that every night I will more than likely revisit one of them. – a reddit user.

Telephobia

Fear of talking to people on phone.

I refuse to answer phone calls from numbers I don’t know (and even some I do). It usually stems from negative expectations of what the other person is going to say, ” says quora user.

Phallophobia

This is the fear of anything resembling erect penises. Sufferers are often terrified by the appearance of dildos, or movie relating to it.
