I think that almost all humans are scared of sth. Nowadays it is popular to find a phobia for ourselves when in the world there are a lot of different types of phobias, but if we are afraid of sth., it doesn't mean that we have a phobia.
In my opinion it isn't true. I think that everybody is afraid of somethink, but most of them can master it. Some people have phobias. It could be caused by different things. Someone can have phobic about spider. He is all time thinking about it. He can cure by walking on therapy to psychologist. I know people who have been cured of phobias but there are people who haven't been cured and they have phobias still.
In my opinion everybody is afraid of something, but it doesn’t have to mean, that somebody has a phobia about something. When we don’t think about thing that scared us, we don’t paninc, but when we think everyday how much we are afraid we begin to belive in that. When we encounter with the thing that we are scared of, we become histeric.
I think that everybody is phobic about something because in the world there is no person who wouldn't feel fear of something. Although in my point of view people often don't admit to this or they think that this is a little problem in their life. But in fact it is a big problem because their life is dependent on their phobia and because of this some of them are becoming confined.
I think it would be impossible to prove that everybody has a phobia. I find it highly unlikely that everybody does have a phobia. If you take a logical approach to fear, then anything that may cause harm to you or others would be a legitimate fear, not a phobia.
In my point of view not all people is phobic about something. For example some people maybe scared of spiders or snakes and when they see it they get goosebumps and they tremble. Then we can say that this people have a phobia. But everybody is scared about something for example bugs. Its disgusting and then we are afraid that it can do something for us. But in my opinion it doesn't phobia but only bias.
I agree with the majority. Everyone is afraid of something, but that doesn't mean that each of us has a phobia. Often misuse the words "phobia", for example - "spiders are scary, therefore I have a phobia of spiders". And then it is said that so many people have phobias ... already know why.
I also agree with previous users, everybody is afraid of something, but not everyone panics when see source of its fear. For example i used to be afraid of heights but i didn't scream as hell when i was on place like bridge, i just felt uncomfortable but in my opinion it wasn't phobia. To sum up from my point of view most of nowadays fears isn't phobia but just fears.
I think it's normal that everyone is afraid of something. We are only human and not robots so we can feel fear. Most people stop being afraid when they are older or have to face your fears. When I was younger I had a fear of heights. I was afraid to go down the stairs three meter. I still have this fear but to a small extent.
In my point of view it isn't true because we can't say that everybody is phobic about somethink. Of course everyone is afraid of somethink but it is phobia. Phobia can be called fear with one has health consequences.TalkingPoint wrote:Everybody is phobic about something
