More About What Is the Phobia Of....Called? by Jay Nicklause
 
 
 
Overview
A large number of phobia lists circulate on the Internet, with words collected from indiscriminate sources, often copying each other. Also, a number of psychiatric websites exist that at the first glance cover a huge number of phobias, but in fact use a standard text to fit any phobia and reuse it for all unusual phobias by merely changing the name. Sometimes it leads to bizarre results, such as suggestions to cure "prostitute phobia" Such practice is known as content spamming and is used to attract search engines In many cases specialists prefer to avoid the suffix "phobia" and use more descriptive terms, e.g. personality disorders, anxiety disorders, avoidant personality disorder, love-shyness. This is a list that has been created on my computer for 2 years, defining phobias, irrational or pathological fears of various things. The reason I've resisted is that someone else has done a far more thorough job than I could ever do. However, so many people over the years have asked for a Phrontistery phobia list that I've finally capitulated. While the Phobia List includes phobias used in medical papers or other printed sources, but not in a major reference dictionary, I strongly recommend it to those interested in phobias. NOTE: I am not an expert on phobias or mental illness. My interest in phobias is strictly limited to words.
