I thought Haemophobia was spelt wrong; haemophilia; blood condition; It should be spelt differently

English "ae" spellings were regularised in the US to "e" about two hundred years ago. Hemophilia, Hemorrhage, Hematoma are all standard American spellings.

...as is "spelled" rather than "spelt" (unless you're talking about the type of wheat) - though I think that is a more recent adoption.

Xenophobia is specifically a fear of people from other countries, not other races.

While xenophobia does mean fear of foreign people, it's also used more generally as meaning a fear of the unknown/different/strange/unlike. I tried all of those first before getting more specific. No one else mentioned this yet, however, so I'm not saying the additional answers should be added; I just wanted to mention it.

I tried many different things for aviophobia, and I knew what it was, but plane, planes, aeroplane, aeroplanes, airplane, and airplanes wouldn't work. Out of sheer desperation I tried birds.

Good, maybe also disallow 'Tallin' for Tallinn, 'St George' for St George's, 'Kingston' for Kingstown, and 'Sana' for Sanaa?

:D I do have that with some other animals, not the fear though, but man I have pigeons (turtledoves) in my tree and ones of them seems obsessed he cant stop staring at me ! Also blackbirds can look at you quite intensly.

And when a dragonfly lands on me it seems like he is keeping an eye on me but it is hard to see due to his multifaceted eyes.

And the jumping spider he is soooo cool, the keep track of you and always move so you stay in its sight, I find them really cute haha

For xenophobia, you should accept other cultures or even just cultures.

no cause xeno means strange/ foreign.. Xenotransplantation is when you get the organ of an animal. it does not really have anything to do with people or culture, it can be foreign cells, things that are alien to the body.

But yes today foreign (really just meaning outside) and alien (meaning other) are words used more in polictics than in any other place.

I think gymnophobia should include the fear of gym class. Seriously, how many of us hated changing to our gym clothes in the locker room? (I just hated gym class - period.) And think how great it would sound in a note from Mom: "Please excuse my child from gym class due to his gymnophobia." The kid would be the envy of all his friends! LOL

I feel like apiphobia is pretty rare. Most people afraid of bees are likely allergic to, or don't know whether or not they're allergic to, bees. At that point, it is no longer a phobia because the fear is rational
+1
Level 75
Nov 18, 2020
Hmm, never thought about it like that. So the fact that my daughter has been afraid of bees ever since she was repeatedly stung after driving the lawnmower over a bumblebee nest is a rational fear rather than a phobia? She doesn't even like to go fishing at our pond because we have honeybee hives along the dam. I think at some point her fear becomes irrational or phobic if she allows it to interfere with daily activities, but you still made an interesting point.

Agoraphobia is not just simply a fear of open spaces. It’s going into places with a bunch of people, being up in front of people; places that make someone fear something could go wrong in front of an “audience.”
+1
Level 77
May 27, 2022
From looking it up briefly, it appears that agoraphobia can be about anything that might make a person feel unsafe and unable to find safety. Open spaces are very often related to this because there’s a lack of shelter from anything that might cause anxiety.
+1
Level 77
May 27, 2022
Not necessarily. Agoraphobia is about being somewhere where one feels unsafe, and lacking control. This can mean open spaces, crowds, new/unfamiliar places, public transit, traveling in general, etc. The type of social embarrassment you describe can compound the issue, but isn't a necessary part of it. This is why agoraphobics might be fine with people coming over to their own house (a place they feel safe and in control), but not okay being out alone somewhere unfamiliar.

Reminds me of Roger Ebert's review of Friday the 13th where he says: 'In my research I discovered that the scientific name for fear of Friday the 13th is paraskavedekatriaphobia. I envision a new franchise: "Paraskavedekatriaphobia: A New Beginning," "Paraskavedekatriaphobia: Jason Lives," "Paraskavedekatriaphobia: Freddy's Nightmare," etc.'

I have kidpoolandhottubphobia. Obviously, it is a fear of pools and hot tubs where little kids tend to camp (kind of hypocritical, speaking that I’m a kid my self). I also have deadbugsinpoolphobia, though I love live bugs and I love swimming. Something about the fact that your just swimming around in somewhere with little bodies is just creepy. That might be also part of my kidpoolandhottubphobia, there’s a lot of bugs in those.

I personally have thanatophobia or the fear of death.

More specifically the thought of what may come after death. Talking about my fears usually doesn't trigger a reaction but sometimes without warning I just suddenly become very aware of my mortality and barely come out of my room for hours.
