That certainly is a new revelation. Any idea what is the 'fear of unknown' called. Most of us suffer from that one including me.

Fear of unknown, you haven't live it yet, you don't know what is it.You don't know what to expect; it could be good or bad. If you experience the "unknown", it can become a phobia (persistent fear of certain situations,activities,things etc...) and will have a particular name.

I love Edvard Munch "The Scream"... I didn't see my phobia on there, I'm afraid of water I can't see the bottom of! Always makes me feel like a dork.. :)

#'s 1,2,6,9 are all phobias of mine. The chaetophobia one for me is not just any type of hair, but long...girl hair when its wet and gets on my hand...say when in washing dishes, or on a brush or comb.
