1. [+17, -0] Honestly, the people who have no phobias are very minority

2. [+15, -0] It'll cause me a phobia that I don't even have

3. [+9, -0] I have a phobia of bugs ㅋㅋ I don't know if it counts as a phobia but when I hear a bug sound, I really flinch. I can't even get rid of a dead bug. I'm just really really scared of bugs... I have no other phobias but any type of bugs really scares me ㅠㅠ

4. [+9, -0] I have astrophobia... Whenever I see pictures of a deep sea or deep sea organisms, I feel like I'm gonna faint

5. [+5, -0] I have astrophobia. I'm not scared of deep sea organisms though. I feel like my heart would stop when I see a picture of a deep sea or the space. I don't know what's scary about it but I just find it scary. If I force myself to look at it, my heart starts beating faster

6. [+4, -0] I have astrophobia ㅋㅋ When I see a reservoir or a lake in a night, I get goosebumps. I can never walk alone

7. [+4, -0] Astrophobia ㅠㅠ I'm really scare of it

8. [+4, -0] Homophobia is considered as a mental illness. Just because you hate gay people, it doesn't make you homophobic.... If you don't consider them as humans or if you hate them to the point you want to kill them, then it makes you homophotic. Just because you find them disgusting, it doesn't mean that you're homophobic. This is why trypophobia(fear of small holes/dots put together) is not considered a phobia
