greatest fear survey

Updated on April 3, 2011

I'm Curious, and Need Your Help.

Hi, thanks for stopping by.

I just want to ask you to please take a quick survey for me.

Let me explain.

I have written several hubs, as most of you have. I have noted that one stands out head and shoulders above the rest, in terms of viewing stats. It's obvious to me that I have a hot topic and wish to focus more on that theme. I wanted to start a new topic in the forum section, but I felt many of you may not comment for fear of exposure to people that you would rather not. So, I figure, an annonymous survey response would be safer for you. Hence this hub.

I will make it brief so you do not need to spend too long reading, but rather responding, and moving on. I know how time deficient most of you (us) are. If you desire to post a comment that's relevant to this survey, please feel free to leave one. I have set the security features such that the comments will need to be approved before publishing. If you want to keep it confidential, please say so, and I will. I know that the "profiles" section has a feature where you can request a hub (from me, or anyone else), but it may not be a hub you need. Please feel free to ask .

I have included a  range of topics for you to choose from, and added "other" for anything not covered. 

Thank you so much. I couldn't do it without your help.

      My greatest fear is the ocean. I can't even look at it without being paralyzed in fear. When i was younger, i got caught in a riptide which pulled me all the way out there. My dad brought me back but not before a few waves crashed over me. Now anything with water, lake, or ocean just scares me to the bone. But i still have those terrifying dreams of being choked to death by water... I hope my vote still helped.

      Thank you all so much for bringing the total up to 100. I will use this to write another hub soon.

      @ Diane, I figured that I would not be able to cover all possible fears, so I added "other" to the options just for this scenario. I also appreciate that one may not wish to share their fear(s).

      interesting that I also picked the fear that most others did - I'm not sure how to deal with the loss of a loved one - the others I think I could handle better. good hub

      But we need them. Think of all the bugs we'd have without them.
