Types of PhobiasSpecific Phobias, Social Phobias, Not The Same As Shyness, Agoraphobia
Everyone is afraid of something, and people fear all sorts of different things. You may think that bungee-jumping is a huge rush, whereas your best friend may be terrified of heights. Perhaps your mother or father loves to fish, sail, or swim, but the thought of being on the open sea fills you with fear. It is natural to be afraid of certain things, but when that fear becomes uncontrollable, it can turn into a phobia.
There are hundreds of types of phobias. Psychiatrists have divided phobias into three groups. These are specific phobias, also called simple phobias, social phobias, and agoraphobia.
