Top 10 Unfamiliar Phobias

1 2

A survey of 100 phobias was presented to different study groups. Surveying 100 people, here are phobias that were unfamiliar and thought of as rare.


1. Kainophobia:

Kainophobia is the fear of newness, novelty, change, innovations and unfamiliar things. The word is Greek and is broken down into two words: Kain (new) and Phobia (fear).


2. Barophobia:

Fear of gravity. Heredity and traumatic events cause this fear. People with this phobia will become anxious, will shake and sweat and have heart palpations.


3. Bibliophobia:

Fear of books. Although this phobia is uncommon, it makes an excellent setting for certain Halloween events.


4. Ergophobia:

Fear of work. The root word comes from Ergon (Work) and Phobia (Fear). People experience gratuitous anxiety about the workplace environment. They mostly fear that their work will not be done up to expectations.


5. Gynophobia:

There is such a thing. Many individuals, surveyed, questioned whether this was for real or not. My answer is that there could be a fear of women. Many believe that this is a drive to homosexuality. Others believe it is a similar case to Cosmo Kramer in Seinfeld. What do you think?
