I'm extremely afraid of big dogs. A few years ago I got chased by a pittbull and a Rottweiler and had to call the cops to rescue me.
I also don't like small spaces or crowds.

Arachnophobia yet I've seen the actual movie dozens of times and hate it. On the other hand tarantulas don't bother me much and as long as the spider is behind something i can deal with it.

It's called phobophobia.

Wiki defines it as:


Phobophobia is a phobia defined as the fear of phobias, or the fear of fear, including intense anxiety and unrealistic and persistent fear of the somatic sensations and the feared phobia ensuing. Phobophobia can also be defined as the fear of phobias or fear of developing a phobia. Phobophobia is related to anxiety disorders and panic attacks directly linked to other types of phobias, such as agoraphobia.[1] When a patient has developed phobophobia, their condition must be diagnosed and treated as part of anxiety disorders.[2]

I suppose I still have mild Nyctophobia (fear of the dark), as do a lot of people. I tend to just avoid complete darkness. If I do encounter it, as long as I don't think about the fact that I'm in the dark while I'm in the dark (which is a fun game) I'm happy in blissful oblivion. But I had it severely as a child/tween with panic attacks and the like. I blame my rebellious imagination! *shakes fist* The stupid thing took away my precious hours of sleep!

My Mum showed me the movie Jaws when I was like 6-7 years old, since then I have been afraid of sharks to the point of being scared just swimming in a pool.

Social phobia,

enoclophobia

- I recently watched the movie Project Almanac and there's this event in the movie called Lalapalooza. It looked fun. But to me, I would be spending a lot of energy to a point I would feel nauseated and out of place.

Neophobia -
The day after purchasing a Wii, I felt out of place, like I was having a vertigo. I slept the whole day to get adjusted. Same experience when playing weird games like Tunnel B1 or Tenchu Stealth Assassins.

I have a phobia of bacteria, ticks, and any small, almost invisible ...insects? every time I move to a new place I have to take a complete week to clean the place up!

I don't know if this is fear or just hate or both but I can't stand being in a enclosed space with many people (like an elevator) I feel like suffocating.
