Strangest Phobias One could Think Off

1) Sanguivoriphobia:
Sanguivoriphobia is the fear of vampires, yes, it is an irrational fear of vampires. This phobia is said to be developed from their beliefs that vampires are real. And if you ask me, where do they get this irrational idea that vampires are real, I would have to say it’s from scary movies that portray vampires. Well the movie ‘The Twilight Saga’ couldn’t cause much impact on them I believe.

2) Lipophobia:
Well, many suggests that lipophobia is a rare phobia, but I believe almost all teenage girls are experiencing this phobia. Lipophobia is the fear of becoming fat. Now you know why I have mentioned about lot of teen girls experiencing this phobia.

3) Trypophobia:
I would strongly recommend you not to google this phobia. Trypophobia is the fear of holes. Thousands of people say that they have this condition, in some-cases even seeing pictures of holes can turn out fatal. Once again I would like to say, don’t google this. I am pretty sure you are googling it right now and if you are, you are going to be sorry for not listening to my words.

4) Pogonophobia:
Some people may hate beards, well, that’s pretty common. Imagine people getting scared at the mere sight of beards, this fear of beards is termed as Pogonophobia. People who goes through Pogonophobia will face persistent and often unwarranted fear of beards.

5) Hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia:
Don’t you hate it when you have to learn a word that’s pretty lengthy? Well, some people fear it. Yes, you read that right Hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia is an irrational fear of long words.

6) Ergophobia:
I am pretty sure almost everyone of us has this phobia, Ergophobia is an abnormal and persistent fear of work. Do you hate to work? Well, that’s because you are lazy, what if you got fear to work? that’s because you got Ergophobia. Well it’s a good excuse to give, when someone approaches us with the question ‘you haven’t got a job yet?’
