P-P-P-Poll to Take Below

I'd like to do more phobia posts in the near future which means I need to know what scares you the most. Insects, Rodents and Reptiles are the more obvious choices but is there anything odd that just scares the muck out of you for no good reason?

I invite you all to take the poll to the right(and possibly a scroll or two down). It will determine the subject of the next phobia post and help feed my curiosity :)

Here's a few of the more "say wha?" ones:

Asymmetriphobia- Fear of asymmetrical things
Bibliophobia- Fear of books
Chirophobia- Fear of hands
Dendrophobia- Fear of trees
Ereuthrophobia- Fear of blushing
Francophobia- Fear of France or French culture
Geniophobia- Fear of chins
Hydrophobia- Fear of water or of rabies
Ichthyophobia- Fear of fish (guilty)
Japanophobia- Fear of Japanese
Kathisophobia- Fear of sitting down
Linonophobia- Fear of string
Microphobia- Fear of small things
Nudophobia- Fear of nudity
Octophobia - Fear of the figure 8
Proctophobia- Fear of rectums
Q-no Q available... seriously?
Radiophobia- Fear of radiation, x-rays
Selaphobia- Fear of light flashes
Textophobia- Fear of certain fabrics
Urophobia- Fear of urine or urinating
Vestiphobia- Fear of clothing
Wiccaphobia: Fear of witches and witchcraft
Xanthophobia- Fear of the color yellow or the word yellow
Y-no Y either, psh
Zelophobia- Fear of jealousy

I don't make this stuff up folks! I didn't need to, it was already strange.

Poor Tobias!

I was hoping you had a fear of farms and agriculture in the list as my boyfriend called it something silly the other night.

Fear of Japanese? Figure 8? Wow there's some really bizarre phobias out there! I'm simple, I have the bug phobia. Though I've been trying to work on it since I noticed my son is picking up on the fear of bugs as well-because of me. =|

I never pass up a chance to talk about my emetophobia; it's the fear of barfing! it is an embarrasing, totally lame, and really real phobia. :)
