Some Unusual Phobias - What's Yours?


Just for fun here are some of the more unusual phobias – I’d love to hear from you if you have an unusual phobia too.

Nomophobia: Short for no-mobile-phone phobia, this is the constant fear of not having service and according to researchers in the UK a whopping 50% of people have it.

Heliophobia: In a sort of modern day vampirism, heliophobia is actually defined as fear of the sun.

Haphephobia: it’s the fear of being touched.

Oikophobia: Being scared of your household appliances

Neophobia: A fear of new things

Chronophobia: The fear of time passing.

Phagophobia: A fear of swallowing

Xanthophobia: fear of the colour yellow, sufferers may fear anything yellow, including the sun, daffodils and yellow paint.

Turophobia: Sufferers usually associate cheese with a traumatic memory. From cheddar to mozzarella turophobes often have to run away if they so much as see a slice of cheese.

Pogonophobia- strong fear of beards
