    None really; I'm scared of a lot of the things but I wouldn't say it's a phobia. That said, I'm pretty shaky using telephones, but only to people I've not met/seen. Eek, it makes my throat all dry, makes me stutter. I have to practice what I say for about ten minutes before hand.:eek:

    I've spent ages just laughing at the randomness of some of these! They're hilarious... "fear of peanut butter sticking to the roof of your mouth" is one that made me laugh because I have a peanut allergy, so I guess that should be my phobia :p:
    But then it wouldn't be a phobia, would it?

    This - Automatonophobia- Fear of ventriloquist's dummies.

    This - Bathmophobia- Fear of stairs or steep slopes. (actually just stone spiral staircases)

    And the opposite of this - Plutophobia- Fear of wealth.
    me too- absolutely hate spiral staircases and steep slopes, going down them is worse than going up. Other than that I hate polystyrene and funnily enough, so does my twin sister. The squeeky noise it makes and the texture is just horrible. Yes, I'm odd.

    No you're right it really wouldn't, it'd be a completely rational fear!

    I've a moderate fear of heights, but I'd say that's entirely within reason given my generally abominable sense of balance and depth-perception; indeed, it isn't so much a fear of heights as one of falling.

    Same here, my fear is mainly of falling which is why escalators petrify me... hmm I wonder if escalators is on there. Also I have apiphobia - fear of bees, and wasps as well whatever that one is! I will make up a word "vespaphobia" :p:
    EDIT: Fear of wasps is actually Spheksophobia, however that's said :p:

    There was a guy on T.V with that, on Trisha or something, he got over it and got into a tub full of them on the show :rofl:

    Good for him though.

    I've a fear of wasps also, but again I'd say that's rational insofar as I fear pain: I don't mind bees, by extension, because they tend to be quite docile.

    i dont think i have any just mild fears, most of mine just come under OCD's like i cant have open doors ect.
    but i would say i find it hard to breathe when crossing a brigde and have a fear of deep water - yet i love shallow swimming pools
    but i remember up till the age of 12 i had a really bad fear of escalators and it would drive my mum insane, she left me once at the bottom of an esculator coz i wouldnt go down it and i started crying until she finished her shopping and came back for me
