There is no person in the world who is not afraid of anything. Actually, fear is a normal emotion to a threat from the outside environment. According to psychologists, it is a healthy reaction of our body that prevents us from entering life-threatening situations.
Throughout his life, man faces various fears. And while some fears disappear by themselves, new ones emerge according to our age.
However, there are paralyzing fears that pose a serious threat to normal functioning. These fears are called phobias.
How many times have you heard someone saying he has a phobia? Often, we use this word without knowing its actual meaning. It is therefore very important to know how to distinguish phobia from “ordinary” fear.
Namely, phobia is an unrealistic and unjustified fear of certain objects, actions or situations. It is caused by events from the past that we have experienced as dangerous or deadly. Even the negative experience of close people can lead to irrational fear.
People who suffer from some phobia are usually aware of their problem. Unfortunately, this fear is beyond our control and is accompanied by a series of physical and psychological symptoms.
Believe it or not, about 10 percent of the total adult population has some of the 400 types of phobias. People are most usually afraid of spiders, mice, snakes and birds. Then follows the fear of natural phenomena, primarily of thunder (brontophobia). Of the phobias related to situations, the most prevailing fear is the fear of height (acrophobia) and confined space (claustrophobia).
In addition to simple ones, there are also complex phobias, such as social phobia, i.e. fear of social situations. People with this phobia are afraid of public humiliation and negative criticism, so they avoid encounters with strangers, crowds and public places.
