10 Weird & Unique Phobias That You Might Have


I do think I have some of the ones listed here. Not gonna tell you which one tho. 🙂 Which one do you think you have?

10. Symmetrophobia
The fear of symmetry. Especially architectural and artistic aspects. The symmetry may seem to be too perfect that it is too scary to be around. So at home, they may opt to abstract paintings or anything askewed.

9. Anuptaphobia
The fear of staying single or afraid of being married to the wrong person. I do think a lot of people nowadays have this. They change partners like they watch YouTube videos. Click, watch, done, next. They just can’t select the right one and afraid they will never find “the one”.

That’s one kind of anuptaphobia the other kind clings to one person even if they’re wrong for each other because of the fear of being single.

8. Xenoglossophobia
The fear of foreign languages. This happens in 3 parts, anxiety of apprehension because they are afraid they cant understand the foreign language, afraid to speak in the foreign language in fear of it being wrong and worry that people would judge you negatively for butchering the foreign language.
I say, you won’t get better if you don’t practice it. I know this because I’m bilingual heck english isn’t even my first language.

The fear of buttons. This is pretty rare but not unheard off. The thought, discussion or even the sight of buttons can trigger a full blown anxiety attack. Finding clothes would be a pain if you have this phobia, all you’d be wearing are t-shirts and rubber waisted pants or skirts.

6. Botanophobia
The fear of plants. I know that some plants kill and eat insects, some are poisonous to humans, some are so huge they could just kill you if you get tangled in their branches without any machette. OK! Plants ARE scary.

The fear of money. Either afraid of having too little or too much. One of the common phobia people have but some have a more chronic reaction to it such as dizziness, sweating and confusion.
Even some homeless people have this, they would be too afraid to beg even if they are starving.

The fear of sitting. They might feel that they are trapped, thus become uncomfortable and then unable to sit still. Extreme cases would stop them from driving a car, sitting in a comfortable restaurant and even watching a movie in the cinema.

3. Arithmophobia
The fear of numbers. Often a specific number like Tetraphobia for the number 4, Triskaidekaphobia for number 13 heh you know where that one comes from and the notorious Hexakosioihexakontahexaphobia (fuh a mouthful) for the number 666.

The fear of technology. In this current day and age, if you have this phobia.. I don’t think you would last long. I don’t even think you would be watching this video! To all that have been watching until now, congratulations! You don’t have this phobia!

1. Phobophobia
The fear of having a phobia. This one is the scariest phobia of them all because it is an infinite loop of fear. It’s a paradox of fear that makes the fear from a fear that is a fear of the fear. Try making sense of that lol For that person, its a never ending circle.
