What are you afraid of?

Post something that frighten or scares you.

Honestly, the only thing I'm afraid of is becoming a NEET.

Fears:

-Deep water
-Heights
-Darkness (minor fear)
-Insects
-Social interaction/intimacy (Disorder/phobia)
-Being restrained, unable to move.
-Closed in spaces (minor claustrophobia)
-Stage fright/ center of attention
-Rejection/failure
-Death (its universal but at one point I went through a serious phase of turmoil over it)

Those listed above should not be confused with "dislikes". They are either fears or phobias.

I wouldn't say creepypasta induces fear, its just rather unnerving.

Death itself doesn't really appeal to me as "scary". Maybe HOW I die.

Nothing but spiders, I have an irrational fear and I can't help it, I know they can't hurt me but that doesn't help. I'm not too keen on heights but im not particularly scared, just a bit wary.

Fear is such a weird thing.If you think your afraid of something it haunts you for eternity.

So for me: There's nothing to fear but fear itself.

Fear isn't weird. It's natural. Usually developed from past experiences, insecurities and extreme cautiousness. In dangerous situations, fear is the bodies' reaction to possible external harm that can save your life. Though fear definitely has negative psychological effects.

Some of what you said is more phobia, than fear. But the biological approach is definitely fear as you said, its also noted as the "fight or flight response"
Fear is mostly instinct and could be debated as genetic. Phobia however is learned.

For me it's more like competition schedule. Especially when it gets moved closer. D:

Doesn't "Phobia" mean "fear of"?

In psychology they are used differently, phobia is more of the irrational type. Fear is normal instinct.
So they probably do stem from the same thing but have their differences.

How scared do you guys get? When my mate gets his tarantulas out the box I swear there's not a man big enough that could keep me in that room. I've never known fear like it.

Don't lock me in a room with the television on and showing a horror movie. I freak out. Especially if the horror  is more psychological than physical horror.

Oh, and there was this one time where I slept on the bathroom for a few minutes. I leaned on the wall. When I woke up, a spider was on the wall I was leaning on. I did a silent scream and swatted it out of the wall. I proceeded to brutalize it by spraying it with medium-pressured water. Yes, I get very brutal when startled.

I have trypophobia. It's the fear of small and/or randomly-sized holes in clusters. The two biggest things that agitate this fear are two photoshopped image sets called "Lamprey Fingers" and "Lotus Boob". When I see images of this sort, I get really itchy and freaked out. This can last for up to at least 5-30 minutes.

If you want to know what Lamprey Fingers and Lotus Boob are, I know of a page you can see them. At one point, I was tricked into looking at the Lotus Boob page on Encyclopedia Dramatica. Just look up "Lotus Boob" in the search bar of that site and you'll most likely find the page that shows both Lamprey Fingers and Lotus Boob.

But please, don't post any images asking if that's it. PLEASE do not.

.....Everything above this line is a generic copy/paste I made a while back, with the only change being to the ED URL so it would actually link to ED.
