Xanthophobia - The Fear of the Color Yellow.


So the other day at work a friend of mine was telling me about her friend in college that had an irrational fear of bananas. Like, literally, could not look at one without bursting into tears, which is... weird but whatever. 

I don't blame her though after looking at that picture. Kinda creepy. 

Anywho, today I got to thinking about that and I decided to look up some more irrational fears. There are some fears that are so ridiculous that I can't believe they exist. Then there are some fears that I have that I didn't realize I had till I saw them on the list. Here are some of my favorites. 

Fear of:


Yikes. I hope they never watch Project Runway. 

Beaten by a rod or instrument of punishment, or of being severely criticized- Rhabdophobia.

Hahaha! Thats specific. 

Cholera- Cholerophobia.

Don't really have to worry about this one. 

Duty or responsibility, neglecting- Paralipophobia.

I think my brothers have this one. 

Jews- Judeophobia.

HA! Thats all. 

Rooms- Koinoniphobia.

You're just screwed. Where ya gonna go?

Scabies- Scabiophobia.

Don't audition for Disney. 

Tickled by feathers or feathers- Pteronophobia.

How bad can it be? 

Ugliness- Cacophobia.

I feel this one. 

Yellow color- Xanthophobia.

This is for that one girl . You are kinda validated?


The one I can relate to is Sarmassophobia: A Fear of Dating. Its a disease people!
