I think that a lot of people feel fear of something but it isn't a phobia. Phobia is something seriously difficult to deal with it and something that does not allow one to move and etc. In conclusion man is able to overcome the fear but when have phobias man need special treatment. Because not all sitting at the doctor in my opinion not everyone have a phobia.

When it comes to phobia I claim that people often think that they are phobic about something, but in fact they just afraid on it. In the XXI century people have easy access to websites, they read articles about phobia and think that they really have it, but I think that only doctors say that someone has phobia and then they should treat it, because it can make life really difficult.

Firstly we should gloss the concept 'phobia', because actually a lot of people don't know what it is. Phobia is a type of anxiety disorder, usually defined as a persistent fear of an object or situation. This definition was created somehow. It means that people are phobic about something. But is everyone ? In my opinion not everyone is phobic about something. I know some who don't afraid of nothing, but I also know some who fear terribly for example dogs or heights. A few years ago I was phobic about spiders, so I understand people who are phobic.

Yes, I think that everybody has a phobia. I do not know a person who would not be afraid of anything. Not long ago we had a lesson on this subject and all the students said that they have phobias. I am personally afraid of spiders. When I see them I have chills. Phobia for spiders is quite common.

I believe that everybody has a phobia but then it grows . Nowadays I think people often talk themselves into various phobias which do not really have.

No, I don't agree everybody is phobic about something. We are phobic about something, when we panic about something or we can't stand it. I think more people are just afraid of something, they aren't phobic. They feel fear or they panic in some situations, but it isn't phobic. In my opinion everybody is afraid about something, it's normal for me, but everybody isn't phobic about something of course.

I strongly believe that everyone have some kind of fears. Contrary to the common opinion the bravest ones usually have also the greatest fears. So how it comes out that they can overcome them? They just acknowledge their weaknesses and face them with courage. In the end of the day fear is an abstract feeling which exist only in our head. So do not lost your head about it!‏

In my opinion - yes. Today every single human has a phobia becouse there is so much of them. Sometimes we don't even know if we are phobic. It's enough to not tolerate something very much and it can be your phobia. For example, I'm typical phobic - I have claustrophobia but my sister starts to panic when she see a spider. For me all our fears are a ours own phobias.

I think every person is scared about something, but in my opinion a phobia is too big word. For example bungee-jumping scares many of people, but this is not a phobia, because it isn's somethink that we can't defeat.

In my opinion some people are phobic about sth, but not everyone. In my case- I'm phobic about cleaning my hands. I mean, I'm cleaning my hands hundred times by day and I'm talking literally! :D I do it because I have that feeling that I have dirty hands and when I don't wash them I have sth like panic attacks haha ;) I always have with me specially gels for washing hands without water haha ;)
