  1. I find it truly astounding of how many types of phobias there truly are. There are a few that many of us have heard of. However, is there a certain phobia that you have found to be the most unusual or different?

  2. One phobia that i found to be weird was Cathisophobia, which is a fear of sitting. Its odd because you nearly have to sit every single day, so I really don’t understand how they would function, or do they just stand for literally everything. And as for if there are any phobias more serious then the other, i feel like all of them depending on the person will take a huge toll on that person whether its Botanophobia, which is a fear of plants or Dystychiphobia which is a fear of accidents. All of them affect people to a certain extent. All of those fears have to have a hold on people and how they carry themselves throughout the day
