Types of phobia

Phobias can develop around any object or situation. They can broadly be divided into two areas:

  • Specific phobias
  • Complex phobias (which are not discussed here).


Specific phobias

These are phobias about a specific object or situation, such as spiders or flying. They often develop in childhood or in the teens.

Some fairly common specific phobias are:

  • Animals. Examples: cats, spiders, rats and mice.
  • Environmental. Examples: heights, water, the dark, thunder and lightening or germs.
  • Sexual. Examples: sexual acts or fear of being naked.
  • Situational. Examples: flying, going to the dentist, tunnels, tube trains or public toilets.
  • Somatic. Examples: getting sick, choking, injections, medical procedures or giving birth.
  • Subjective. Examples: certain foods, objects, characters or appearance.

Fear is when we are scared of something, and a phobia is an illogical fear. The difference between fear and a phobia lies in the normality of fear, versus the abnormal aspects and conditions of a phobia. Fear is a natural and biological condition that we all experience and it can be positive and healthy to do so. Fear helps protect us. It makes us alert to danger and prepares us to deal with it.

Your phobia is illogical, and it can be a completely unique experience from other people with the same phobia.
There are many more specific phobias other than those mentioned here, and some people may experience numerous phobias.
