Phobias are common psychological fears. It is a type of anxiety disorder that causes an individual to experience extreme, irrational fear about a situation, living creature, place, or object. When a person has a phobia, they will often shape their lives to avoid what they consider to be dangerous.

The imagined threat is greater than any actual threat posed by the cause of terror. The person will experience intense distress when faced with the source of their phobia. This can prevent them from functioning normally and sometimes leads to panic attacks. You may have met many people who are either scared of heights or closed spaces (claustrophobia) but there is a whole other set of phobias which most of the people are unaware of. Here are some of the phobias...

Afraid to go to the dentist to the extent that you can't even see a scene in the movie about the same? Chances are that you have Dentophobia.
