About This Quiz

When you think of phobias, you may think of something like agoraphobia (fear of crowds or open spaces) or arachnophobia (fear of spiders). These are fairly common, but rest assured, there are plenty of different fears to go around! Thinking of taking your child to see Santa Claus? It may not be a good idea if they have pogonophobia (a fear of beards). Everyone should have a tattoo buddy when you get your first tattoo for emotional support. However, if that buddy of your has belonephobia, their fear of pins and needles may cause you to run from the parlor before your artist greets you! If you have a hot date and want to shower your beloved with gifts, be sure to make sure they don't suffer from anthophobia or fear of flowers. Of course, if you gave them candy or chocolate-covered strawberries, you may end up getting criticized for the potential weight gain. (Hmm ... this may be why dating is so difficult nowadays!)

Even though you may have the bravest of faces, you probably have something deep down inside of you that creeps you out. We're betting we can discover what makes you quake in your boots. Are you ready? Grab your closest blanket and take this quiz. After all, there's nothing to be scared of, right?
