I'd imagine the most popular answers will be Acrcophobes (heights), Aracnophobes (spiders), Thantophobes (death) and Ophidiophones (snakes). But what are your true fears?

My 2 fears are: 1. Having a lame child and 2. Moldy bread. (seriously)

edited for spelling.

True fears? Coming across a dead body while underwater. Or a beheading. I just have a horrid fear of seeing the last expression on a person's face as they gasp their last breath or getting sliced off.

Wierd fears...horror movies with inanimate objects (dolls, ventriloquist dummies) scare the bejesus out of me. To the point goosebumps rise on my arm thinking about it. Deadly Silence scared the fark out of me.

Has that ever actually worked for someone?

It doesn't matter how much I prepared for a classroom speech. I would get so nervous I would be disoriented. To be honest, it was the only reason I didn't go through college or go back yet. The thought of having to do another speech like that makes me not even want to do it.

Not sure, but I am sure some people use it to ease the anxiety. My public speaking resume includes drunken toasts at weddings so I don't know how I'd do in front of a crowd sober.

That's a nice idea. Thanks.

Mine is an odd one. It is only that standing at podium speaking fear. I talk to strangers everyday at my current job. Never had a problem talking to people.

drowning


More specifically - being caught in a strainer, hydrolic, or being pinned underwater while white water kayaking
