A phobia is described in the Oxford Dictionary as an extreme or irrational fear or an aversion to something or towards a specific thing or group of things.

Now different people have different types of phobias. Just like how peoples taste in things differ.

Let’s take a look at some of the most common phobias known to mankind.

1) Mysophobia- the fear of germs or dirt

2) Pteromerhanophobia- a fear of flying

3) Social Phobia- the fear of social situations and people

4) Trynaphobia- a fear of injections

5) Astraphobia-  a fear of lightning and thunder

6) Cynaphobia- a fear of dogs

7) Ophidiophobia- a fear of Snakes

8) Nyctophobia- a fear of the dark.

I’ve known of people who have some of the above phobias I just never really knew the names of the phobias.

I also discovered today the name of my phobia of balloons.  My fear of balloons is called globophobia.
