Weird Phobias

After looking into the least common phobias I generated a list of the top 10 that appearest most commonly throughout my readings.

  1. Papaphobia: Fear of the Pope.
  2. Papyrophobia: Fear of paper.
  3. Nomophobia: Fear of being without mobile phone service.
  4. Anatidaephobia: Fear that somewhere at some time there is a duck watching you. 
  5. Consecotaleophobia: Fear of chopsticks.
  6. Geniophobia: Fear of chins.
  7. Xanthophobia: Fear of the colour yellow.
  8. Ablutophobia: Fear of bathing, washing or cleaning yourself.
  9. Hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia: Fear of long words. 
  10. Escalaphobia: Fear of escalators.

The two which most interest me are Hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia and Anatidaephobia.
