` Phobias from strange to common probably you didn’t know !!

Phobias are one of the most common mental illnesses that has over passed the human generation for so long. The National institute of Mental Health Suggest that about 8% of US adults have been suffering from some type of phobia. And it is interesting that women are been more occupied with experiencing phobias than men. Weired,right?But the foremost thing that need to be remembered is that virtually any object can become a fear object. Because of this, any attempt at a completely exhaustive list of phobias would simply be an exercise in futility.

When someone has a phobia , they experience intense fear of a certain object or situation. Phobias can be different than regular fears as they cause significant distress , possibly interfering with life at any situation. Phobias come in all shapes and sizes. Because there are an infinite no. of objects and many more phobias still on research,the list of specific phobias is quite long. As there is no official list of phobias, so typically researchers name them by combining a Greek prefix that describes the phobia with the -phobia suffix.
