Do you have any Phobias?
Apparently there is this girl that has a phobia of buttons. She panics at the sight of buttons. She only can wear clothes that zip, it has somthing to do with the texture and size. "It really freaks me out" says the 21 year old student. "My mom says, I would scream and cry as a child when she would get me ready for school. As I started getting older I started having panic attacks when faced with the prospect of touching buttons when getting ready."
Other weird and rare phobia are
Allodoxaphobia: I believe that my husband has this phobia and is not aware of it because he runs every time I try to talk to him about home improvement projects. People suffering with allodoxaphobia have an intense fear of opinions.
Macrophobia: If you have this phobia, do not take a trip to Walt Disney World. Those with macrophobia fear long waits and would never be able to stand (no pun intended) in line for two hours to ride Space Mountain.
Dishabiliophobia is the fear of undressing in front of someone. My daughter definitely did not exhibit this phobia when she was a toddler. If we were not careful, our little exhibitionist would be streaking through not only our home but also the local mall. However, thinking back to gym class, I may have had a touch of dishabiliophobia in the locker room.
Gamophobia: If I had to pick a celebrity with this phobia, George Clooney would win by a stretch. Too many men may overuse the fear of marriage phobia during their twenties and thirties (and in George's case forties, fifties....).
Medomalacuphobia: Fear of losing an erection - - I do not think any further explanation is required (other than I think this is probably a fear of all men).
Automatonophobia: The fear of ventriloquist's dummies, animatronic creatures, wax statues or anything that falsely represents a sentient being. I must admit that if I have any phobias this would be the one. The Hall of Presidents at Walt Disney World terrified me as a child (and yes as an adult, it was still creepy).
Lachanophobia: This could possibly be my favorite phobia. Children around the world would claim a severe fear of vegetables to get out of eating Brussels sprouts if they only knew how to pronounce this phobia.
Xenoglossophobia - My coworkers laugh at me because if anyone calls the office with even a hint of an accent, I transfer the call because I cannot understand what they are saying. Could I possibly have xenoglossophobia (the fear of foreign languages) and not know it?
Politicophobia: I wonder which government grant paid for the group of scientists who defined politicophobia - - the fear or abnormal dislike of politicians? The group definitely loved politicians since they are the ones that funded such a program.
Koniophobia: I am fortunate that I do not suffer from this phobia. If I had an abnormal fear of dust, living in my home would be very difficult for me (or I would learn to clean more, maybe).
