Phobia Quiz: Can You Name These Common Phobias?

Common Phobias

A phobia is an irrational fear of something that is very unlikely to cause a person harm. The National Institute of Mental Health tells people that it's fairly common to have phobias throughout your daily life. Many people have a specific phobia about either an object or situation that they fear. The most common ones were names by the American Psychiatric Association. From the fear of needles to a fear of social situations, phobias can be so severe that they cause people to have a panic attack. They may be related to a traumatic experience or it may just be something you are born with.
