Acrophobia can cause significant anxiety and panic. Acrophobia is one of the most common phobias people have.

2. What would you fear if you suffered from oneirophobia? You probably would not look forward to going to bed.

Oneirophobis (from the Greek "oneiro" meaning dream and "phobia" meaning fear) is the fear of dreaming.

4. Stop, look and listen. Of what is agyrophobia a fear?

From Quiz Ten Unusual Phobias

5. What would someone with turophobia fear?

From Quiz Phobophobia

Answer: Cheese

It's true, I promise you, there are people who are afraid of cheese, and they are known as turophobiacs. Of the alternatives, someone with chiroptophobia is afraid of bats (the flying type rather than those used in baseball or cricket); a uranophobiac has a fear of Heaven (whilst of course most people are much more afraid of the Other Place -- that's called stygiophobia, BTW); and a coulrophobiac is the not the ideal companion for a trip to the circus as they are afraid of clowns.

6. Bruce Wayne had to overcome this phobia before he could become Batman. What is chiroptophobia?

From Quiz Phobias

From Quiz Are You Afraid of the ...?

Answer: arachnophobia

Arachnophobia comes from the Greek words, "arachne" which means spider and "phobos" which means fear. This fear does not include only spiders but other arachnids as well, like the scorpion. Ornithophobia is fear of birds. Gynophobia is fear of women. And spiderophobia, is obviously an invented word of mine.

9. Wintertime can be tough for those afflicted with chionophobia. It is a fear of what?

From Quiz Obscure Phobias

Answer: snow

"Chioni" is the Greek word for "snow". "Phobos" is the Greek word for "fear of." Incidentally, Chionablepsia is the term used for snow blindness.

10. Fun Trivia Category - ANIMALS What is the fear of wild animals?

Answer: Agrizoophobia

The fear of all animals is zoophobia, but wild animals such as giraffes, zebras, lions and bears, the fear is known as agrizoophobia. If you were faced with a lion in the wild, you would naturally start to sweat profusely and panic. People with a fear of wild animals get the same feelings even when the animal is in captivity.

12. The fear of washing or bathing is ablutophobia. What, then, is the fear of being unclean or dirty?

From Quiz Odd Phobias

Chirophobia is the fear of hands. Didaskaleinophobia is the fear of going to school. Genuphobia is the fear of knees or kneeling.

How many of you wish you'd had didaskaleinophobia as an excuse for skipping school?

13. Barophobia is the fear of what?

From Quiz There's a Phobia for That

Answer: Gravity

Barophobia is defined as the irrational fear of gravity. Sufferers fear falling just because of gravitational pull, or that they will will be completely crushed by the force of gravity. Some, however, go in the opposite direction and fear that gravity will fail and they will just float away and be lost forever.

14. Colonel Muammar Gaddafi, who was the leader of Libya from 1969-2011, had a real phobia of what?

From Quiz Phobias of the Rich and Famous

Answer: Flying over water

Whenever this leader had to travel, he also preferred to lodge on the first floor of any building at which he stayed. In addition to that, he never travelled anywhere without his nurse, who was described as "a voluptuous blonde" and with whom he was rumoured to have had a romantic relationship for several years. One had to admire the stamina of the man. He had several wives as well, one of whom had fallen into disfavour. Perhaps she objected to the nurse.

15. What is the phobia of youth and teenagers?

From Quiz Phobia Mania Insania

17. Whilst walking down the street your palms begin to sweat, you get short of breath and you feel dizzy. You look around you and see a bald man. You run into the nearest building to avoid him. Which phobia do you possibly have?

From Quiz Don't Panic!

Answer: Peladophobia

The name peladophobia comes from the Spanish "pelada" meaning, among other things, having no hair. Some researchers feel that peladophobia stems from a person's own fear of going bald. In men this may stem from the mistaken belief that loss of hair equals loss of virility.

18. The trouble with Kyle the Kennel Boy started one Monday when he arrived for work at Splash's Rest Home For Pampered Pooches, refusing to shake hands in greeting and saying he had haphephobia. What on earth is that?
