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.

What do YOU think?

Wordchecker
phobic (adjective): extremely or irrationally afraid of something

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.

I agree , that everybody is phobic about something. It is cause through some expiriences from childhood. We afraid different things for example spiders, closed spices, frogs or dogs. In my opinion, it is normal. Sometimes we can't explain our bahaviour, but usually phobies are connected with predicament. I also have phobic. I scared of thunderstorm very much . While the storm I to panic. I hide myself under blancet. when is storm I can't be alone. I think, nowadays people have more and more phobic. Our entertaiment is changing. We meet different weather phenomena.It is dangerous for us.

In my mind everybody has some phobia but not everybody knows about it. Someone says he is afraid of anything but the true is he hasn't tried everything in his life so in fact he don't know he is. I don't belive that we haven't our weak side. I think each of our brains have deep hide something which we extremely fear.

I strongly believe that everybody has some irrational fears which he/she can't explain. It doesn't depend on us, we just afraid of something and we don't control it. There are a therapies for people who suffer from phobias and I think this confirms that phobias exist

I believe that not everyone has a phobia. Every man is afraid of something but do not interfere with the functioning of society as in the case of phobias. The vast majority of women squealing when they see a mouse, a spider or snake but it is only plain fear. From my point of view symptoms phobia are sweating, dizziness and a feeling of loss control over their behavior.

I disagree with this opinion because in point of view everybody are scared of something but scare it isn't the same as phobia If you are phobic you are very scared and you have some health problem like feeling dizzy or feeling nauseous. So I think that not everyone are phobic.

:-| I think it is true that everybody is phobic about sth, lots of children are fear of darkness, they hate spent time in dark spieces. I heart that some children cry and imagine some unussual creatures which scared them when they wake up at night. Some childs have a fear of spiders and dogs, so they are trying to avoid them. A lot of adults have a fear of thunder. This information doesn't suprise me. I also hate storm. I'm sure that the majority of people have a phobia of sth, because scientists discover a lot of new phobias, so people think that they have a few phobias. Who knows probably they have a phobia which wasn't discovered yet. Don't worry ! You might not have any phobias! :-|

In my opinion it's hard to tell. I think that lots of people are phobic about something.
For example some people feel the fear of water, darkness or spiders.
Each of us has some phobias but it is not always significant.
I really don't like spiders but in fact I don't know whether it is a phobia or I'm only afraid of them.

I thinkt that people just thinks that they are phobic, beause they read too much articles. They are just afraid of something for exaple spiders or snakes.
Some people are really phobic and they are not just afraid but they are frightened when they see that or feel sometking on skin.

I suppose that people think that they are phobics, because on the internet or in tv we have a lot of things about this. In fact people don't know whether are phobics. Only specialist doctor can diagnose fobia. But people forget about this and frequently they consult with tv or internet. These sources of knowledge are not reliable.

This statement may have two versions of their answers. I think some people are phobic about something. They don't like for example dark, spider , dog and etc. Some phobic are conscious, but the other - are unconscious. My friend is afraid of the elevator and when she comes to me , Asia always enters the stairs even though I have elevator in my block.

As far as im concerned I'm not phobic and I'm pretty sure that everyone is afraid of something, but this is not always phobia. Nowadays, many people are told themself that have some phobias. It's all thanks to this great ability to access a wealth of information. A long time ago there was no such possibility, there was no phobia.
