25. Fear of Money (Plutophobia)
No, this isn’t why you’ve got huge credit card debt. Nor is it the reason why you can’t make a ton of money even after reading The Secret 10 times. Plutophobia refers to the fear of money, and it can stem from all kinds of money-related traumas. Perhaps losing all your money, bankruptcy, experiencing a robbery, or even the chilling fear of potentially not having a cent to your name.
26. Fear of Chickens (Alektorophobia)
If you have Alektorophobia, you probably won’t enjoy participating in a chicken dance. (Just kidding. LOTS of people hate that, and it’s not one of our unusual phobias. It just means you have taste.) The fear of chickens is popularly seen in people who grew up in a rural area or around chickens.
27. Fear of Time Passing (Chronophobia)
People who fear that their time on Earth is limited or have trouble keeping track of time’s passing can suffer from chronophobia. The elderly or very sick people, for example, may suffer from it. People who fear death due to some major event in their lives may also develop it.
According to Very Well Mind, “Chronophobia is marked by a sense of derealization in which time seems to speed up or slow down. Some people develop circular thought patterns, racing thoughts, and symptoms of obsessive-compulsive disorder. Prisoners often mark down the days until their release.”
