After looking into the least common phobias I generated a list of the top 10 that appearest most commonly throughout my readings.
- Papaphobia: Fear of the Pope.
- Papyrophobia: Fear of paper.
- Nomophobia: Fear of being without mobile phone service.
- Anatidaephobia: Fear that somewhere at some time there is a duck watching you.
- Consecotaleophobia: Fear of chopsticks.
- Geniophobia: Fear of chins.
- Xanthophobia: Fear of the colour yellow.
- Ablutophobia: Fear of bathing, washing or cleaning yourself.
- Hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia: Fear of long words.
- Escalaphobia: Fear of escalators.
The two which most interest me are Hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia and Anatidaephobia.
