6 Most Shocking Phobia Types by Ayo221(m): 12:33pm On Nov 06, 2015
Euphobia - Fear of hearing good news 

I bet anyone reading this would be happy to hear good news,
 from child birth to a new job appointment. But people
suffering from this kind of phobia are the opposite,
 they thrive on hearing bad news,  enjoy chaotic
environment and will not show happiness when good news is
shared around them.  Sounds like 'bad belle' people
right? 

This phobia is usually caused because a person heard a good
news in the past but was disappointed because it was
untrue. 

Aurophobia -  Fear of gold 

Gold is one of the most sought after treasure in history,
 people can do almost anything to acquire it because of
the enormous wealth it can provide. However there are some
people that eill have panic attacks,  nausea,
 shortness of breath and feel very uncomfortable when
the see gold talkless of touching it. Not sure any Nigerian
will have this phobia o smiley 

Cathisophobia - Fear of sitting 

Almost every of our daily task will involve sitting like when
 we drive,  watch movies, work at the office,
 wash items,  wait for another person and so on.
Though we it sounds like a small thing,  we realize its
importance when we stand for hours, sitting makes performing
task more comfortable but for some people the reverse is that
case. Cathisophobic people avoid sitting at all costs because
it makes them feel trapped and controlled. This kind of
phobia affects almost of the aspect of daily life and makes
simple task seem difficult. 

Vestiphobia - Fear of clothing 

Fear of clothing? Really? Cloths are made to provide warmth
and beautification. But imagine a person being scared of
wearing cloths especially tight ones and turtle necks. People
with this phobia usually feel like the cloths  might
choke them so they prefer being nude.  Vestiphobia is
triggered by past experiences of riddicule by peers because
of cloth worn. 

Leukophobia - Fear of Colour White 

Now its is very common to be afraid of colour red because it is associated with danger, but the fear of colour white popularly known as the colour of peace and purity is another kettle of fish. Some people however have fear of this colour,  people like this may just hate the colour,  or had a bad experience in a place with a white background like on snow, whatever the trigger may be you see them with colorful things and living in colourful houses. Infact some women may be afraid of getting married because of the wearing white bridal clothes. Bro, i guess its time to observe your fiancee... just saying.

 And finally... 

Panaphobia - Fear of EverythingPanaphobia is usually a combination of two or more phobias in one person.  Panaphobia can be very serious as a person can become afraid of anxiety itself. This kind of phobia tends to increase over time as the person continues to acquire other kinds of phobia through life.

 Phobia or  no phobia learn your fears,  that's the sure way to overcome them.
