1) Fear of Flying
Yikes. This picture can't be real...
2) Fear of Public Speaking
Imagining the audience in their undies is supposed to work....
...what if it just turns you on?
3) Fear of Heights
I imagine this goes hand in hand with the fear of flying. I am pretty sure
no one is afraid to fly...just the possibility of falling from such a height.
4) Fear of the Dark
I would never admit that...
5) Fear of Intimacy
I figured this would be more Freudian and on the subconscious
level versus an actual fear that could be listed...
The rest of the top ten are rounded out with (in order): Death, Failure, Rejection, Spiders and Commitment. Some of the top ten seem to be very similar to me such as Rejection is usually a type of Failure, or at least is associated in the minds of those that fear one or the other. Commitment and Intimacy go hand in hand if you ask me. I have only two or maybe two and a half fears that match up with the top ten. But later this week I will share my personal top 5 for your amusement.
I will give you a hint as to one of my fears, and it involves a red nose. It is not Rudolph nor is it an alcoholic, though both of those might throw me for a loop if I was caught off guard. Could you imagine running into a drunkard riding on the back of an actual flying reindeer in the middle of an alley at midnight?
