The 10 most common phobias

A phobia is defined as an anxiety disorder which is characterised by an abnormally intense or irrational fear of a situation, animal or object.
The word phobia is derived from the Greek Phbos meaning fear, or morbid fear.

Phobias are not limited to a certain type of person they can affect men and women, young and old. Phobias can affect anyone and everyone, the rich, the poor, and people all over the world.

The ten most commonly experienced phobias are:

  • Necrophobia: fear of the dead
  • Trypanophobia: fear of injections
  • Carcinophobia: fear of cancer
  • Emetophobia¨ fear of vomit
  • Acrophobia: fear of heights
  • Claustrophobia: fear of being trapped in small confined spaces
  • Agoraphobia: fear of situations in which escape is difficult
  • Aerophobia: fear of flying
  • Social Phobia: fear of social situations and of people judging you negatively in social situations
  • Arachnophobia: fear of spiders

Many people try to cope with phobias by arranging their lives so that they can avoid the situations that trigger their phobic response. The fear experienced when they come into contact with their trigger can be so extreme that the phobia prevents them from leading a normal life.


The good news is that almost all phobias can be managed.
