Whats so strange about being scared of clowns? Everyone knows clowns are evil.
I have the following:
Agyrophobia- Fear of streets or crossing the street.
Aichmophobia- Fear of needles or pointed objects.
Amnesiphobia- Fear of amnesia.
Arsonphobia- Fear of fire.
Asthenophobia- Fear of fainting or weakness.
Athazagoraphobia- Fear of being forgotton or ignored or forgetting.
Automatonophobia- Fear of ventriloquist's dummies, animatronic creatures, wax statues - anything that falsly represents a sentient being
Autophobia- Fear of being alone or of oneself.
Batophobia- Fear of heights or being close to high buildings.
Dystychiphobia- Fear of accidents
Glossophobia- Fear of speaking in public or of trying to speak ( I really have this one, I get sick at my somach and my face turns completely red. When meeting someone new I usually don't speak much during the first few meeting...or when I'm just trying to ask someone I don't known the time I choke up and can't ask.)
Paraskavedekatriaphobia- Fear of Friday the 13th
Pediophobia- Fear of dolls.
Pharmacophobia- Fear of drugs (I can barely bring myself to take medicing.)Taphephobia (Taphophobia)- Fear of being buried alive or of cemeteries.
Well, I have a lot more than those, but I can't list them all. All those phobias and the ones you've listed really do exist and come about sometimes by unusual circumstances. Like you could have a fear of chickens if when you were smaller a chicken chased you around and pecked you. Like me, I don't go around wild animals anymore because one time I was stupid enough to try and help an injured owl. I hate owls now....
Here's a website that has a pretty large list of phobias: www. phobialist.com
Er....I think I have to much fun talking about phobias....
Those are your phobias? Wow, sad life.
Don't know much about phobias but I got two. I'm a homophobic and I'm scared of the sea, however you put that.
