10 crazy phobias that you might actually have

Caligynephobia – Fear of Beautiful WomenWell, you can always go for the not-beautiful women.

 

Fear of Losing Reception

Nomophobia is the fear of losing cell phone contact. Yes, this is real. In today’s world, some people just can’t stand the idea of not being able to pick up their Blackberry or iPhone and text or call someone – anyone.

Fear of the Color Purple

So, if I secretly painted your bedroom eggplant while you were at work one day, you wouldn’t be very happy about that? The fear of the color purple (I kid you not) is called Porphyrophobia. 

Fear of Your Own Reflection

Unless you’re chanting “Bloody Mary, Bloody Mary” into the mirror in a dark bathroom, I’m not sure what’s so bad about looking at your own reflection. But some people, with Spectrophobia, can’t stand to glance at their own face, even in a window. At least that’s a few less people who will be taking pictures of themselves in the mirror and posting them to Facebook.

Fear of Relatives

This one probably makes sense to some people. Syngenesophobia is the fear of relatives. I hope your fear of your in-laws isn’t this intense!

Fear of Magic

Maybe these people watched too much Criss Angel as children. Rhabdophobia is the fear of magic or magic wands (it can also refer to the fear of being beaten with a rod or being harshly criticized). I have a feeling they didn’t read ‘Harry Potter.’

Fear of a Drafty Hallway

Drafts are definitely annoying, but are they scary? Some people find a draft from a window or door, swallowing air and airborne illnesses (ok, I get that one) to be terrifying. These people have a fear called Aerophobia. Fear of air? You better have a tube of caulk and a roll of duct tape handy at all times. 

Fear of Mismatched Socks

Ok, so this phobia, called Asymmetriphobia, is really the fear of asymmetry – but mismatched socks are definitely asymmetrical. Don’t let anyone else do your laundry!

Fear of Numbers

These people must hate their birthdays. The fear of numbers or math is called Arithmophobia. Good luck graduating from high school with this one!

Fear of Bathing

The fear of bathing or of washing in general is called Ablutophobia. This explains a lot about some people. I’d really love to buy them a bottle of Dove soap, at the risk of sending them into a tantrum. Might be worth it.

Fear of Children

The little rascals can be pretty horrifying. People who are legitimately afraid of children have Pedophobia. I guess that’s better than the alternative…

Caligynephobia – Fear of Beautiful Women

Well, you can always go for the not-beautiful women.
