What are you not scared of that many people are?

I'm not afraid of spiders, the dentist or lightening. Nor do i get easily scared in the dark.

That's funny...I'm scared of everything you said you're not. :P

I'm not afraid of crowds, closed in spaces or cotton balls [hehe]. Certain bugs don't bother me either and I handle getting rid of them pretty well. :P

Pickles. Applesauce. Ham.


Oh, wait, you mean stuff that people are generally scared off? Good, cause that was going to a long list. Full of food. I must be hungry...

Well, clowns and balloons don't scare me. Can't think of anything else right now.

I'm not afraid of bugs, public speaking, clowns, crowds (I actually feel better in a crowded place than I do in a sparcely populated place!), elevators, escalators, or fireworks.

That's all I can think of now :)

Oooh, good idea for a thread. :D

I'm not afraid of flying! Not a big deal for most people, but I've been afraid of it for over 10 years and just got over it when I flew to NYC last weekend. The last time I flew before that, I was 4 years old and it hurt my ears so bad that I've been terrified of it ever since. But it barely hurt at all, and now I want to travel the world :D

I'm also not afraid of:

Blood/ getting blood drawn
Spiders
Death
Clowns
Snakes
The dentist (although I have to admit, I'm nervous about getting my wisdom teeth out tomorrow!)

I'm not scared of flying. I've flown loads in my life, and I've never been afraid in any way.
I'm not scared of dogs. I'm not afraid of bugs that aren't spiders or moths. I'm not scared of the dentist. I'm not scared of rats/mice.
And I'm totally not scared of needles at all. Actually, I really want to get acupuncture.

I am not scared of flying either. I enjoy it actually!

I am not scared of clowns or most bugs...anything I can easily squish with a shoe doesn't really scare me.

I am not scared of the gynecologist or other doctor, I am not afraid of the color purple, or the number 13. (Those are just weird phobias to me.)

Im not scared of heights at all. Although I'm not a huge fan of flying, it isnt the height that makes me nervous.

I'm not scared of clowns, though my sister is terrified of them. I'm also not scared of dogs at all. My mom told me once that she used to be so afraid for me becuase when I was a toddler or so, I used to just go up to strange dogs and start petting them. I've always had dogs and grown up with animals, and so I was never afraid.

I'm hugely scared of spiders, ticks and earwigs, but most other bugs I'm cool with if they arent too big and can be squished.

I´m not scared of flying. Although i'm rather scared of heights, i oddly enough, love flying. Thye say they when you get over a certain height though, people stop worrying about the height because you instinctivly know that a fall would definately kill you, no room for maybe's.

I'm not scared of open or crowded spaces either, nor lifts (although everyone gets a bit scared of the lifts where i live, but that's not phobia, that's senible sceptisism concidering the condition of the lifts here)

Bums & beggars- Hobophobia

You have to be joking me, hobophobia? It sounds like something out the Simpsons.


I'm not scared to be myself and I'm not scared of what other people will think.
I'm not afraid of confrontation, in fact I kinda enjoy it :P
I love to fly, even though it causes me pain.
I love going on ferries, or any kind of boat.

I'm really just indifferent to most normal phobias, like spiders and stuff, but I'd just prefer not to pick one up, they feel weird in your hand :(

I have really weird phobias though, like wet cardboard and brown bread :(

In response to the list of phobias:

You know, the fear Methyphobia comes from the Greek word Methysmenos, which means - drunk - How do you get drunk? From alcohol. And phobia, comes from the Greek word phobi, which means - fear - So, fear of alcohol, methyphobia. There ya go!

A Greek could never have Methyphobia. We like to party. OPA!!

So there. That's one thing I'm not afraid of. ALCOHOL.
