If you are moritified by long words, then you would even be more terrified when you hear how long its name is – Hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia. Now that is what we call a mouthful!

For those think that the world is going to end, the moment your phone is out of sight, you probably have a peculiar phobia that UK researchers have tagged: Nomophobia. It is an abbreviation for “no-mobile-phone-phobia.” People with this phobia usually panic the moment they realize that they don’t have their phones with them, and are anxious about all the texts and calls they might be missing out.

Do you get freaked out by the idea of staying in a room alone, then you probably have Autophobia, which is the fear of loneliness or solitude.

Do you shiver at the sight of big books? Maybe you have a peculiar case called Bibliophobia (the fear of books). And for those that dread situations where they have to make decisions, the name for that is Decidophobia.

There are whole lot more funny and interesting phobias out there. but never let you fears keep you in bondage. Most times, fears are figments of our imagination. A popular acronym describes it says False Evidence Appearing Real.

Do you have any kind of phobia?
