Phobias

I was at a meeting the other day and somone mentioned that the two top phobias were public speaking and death. Meaning more people would rather be in the casket than delivering their euology. Got me wondering so I checked out a site
called phobia-fear-release
Guess what - neither are on the top 10 list. Which does surprise me a lot.
The list had these phobias listed - as well as advice on how to get help.
1. Arachnophobia
Fear of Spiders. Half of women and 10 per cent of men have, to some degree, a fear of spiders
2. Social Phobia
Fear of being evaluated negatively in social situations. Social phobia typically begins in childhood or adolescence.
3. Aerophobia
Fear of flying
4. Agoraphobia
Agoraphobia involves intense fear and avoidance of any place or situation where escape might be difficult or help unavailable in the event of developing sudden panic-like symptoms
5.Claustrophobia
Fear of being trapped in small confined spaces.
6. Acrophobia
Fear of heights.
7. Emetophobia
Fear of vomit.
8. Carcinophobia
Fear of cancer.
9. Brontophobia
Fear of thunderstorms.
10. Necrophobia
Fear of death or or dead things

Imagine being on a plane (flying +heights)in a thunderstorm that is causing people to vomit with spiders running loose killing people - I think we would all develop a few phobias.
