What are you afraid of?
When you were a little kid you were scared of the dark, and "monsters". What scares you as an adult, a phobia, a thing or something else?
I was afraid of the dark when I was younger. Deathly so. I've grown out of it mostly, but the irrational fear of "what if something is about to murder me because I can't see them" still rears its ugly head periodically. I haven't had any traumatizing life experiences to justify this, so I can't even begin to tell you why this happens.
Other things I am scared of are animals I have had bad experiences with, much later: geese, jelly fish, wasps, spiders, beetles. I don't go to parks or beaches all that often, so they are easy to avoid...
Spiders. I have nightmares about that. I freak out about that. I do all I can to kill them if I see them.
darkness... yeah a little bit. but monster.. after watching 'monster inc.' nopes... ;p
but i am very afraid of spider and frog... they are too scary..!
Great answers-thanks! Personally, I'm creeped out by sea horses,YUCK! I think you could rob a bank with one of those little freaks, instead of a weapon! Gross! I've known people totally freaked-out by large spider webs, they couldn't, even walk pass them.
I'm afraid of heights. I was the same way when I was little.

We all have phobias without exceptions, but the question is, how do we generate them? Some people are afraid of spiders (Arachnophobia) but others don't, some are afraid of funny things like fear of number 13 (Triskaidekaphobia)! Why is that?
