People all over the world are scared of something or the other. There are several different phobias that we don’t know about or we just assume that we don’t like to do it. Of course, why would anyone want to accept that they have fear for something? Here are some phobias that you need to know about and *psst* you might want to keep this to yourself!
1. Pentheraphobia - Fear of Mother-in-Law
I’m sure many men can relate to this *Pun intended*. Well, as strange as it may sound, it’s true. If you’re scared of your mother-in-law, you’re probably suffering from Pentheraphobia!
2. Deipnophobia - Fear of Dinner Conversation
Today, the culture of dining together with family is not so prominent. Earlier, it was considered etiquette. But, strangely the fear of having dinner conversation is real! Now we know why people turn up to TV while having dinner!
3. Mageirocophobia - Fear of Cooking
This phobia can save you a lot of time! You can tell your partner that you have Mageirocophobia and that ordering from a restaurant would be a better idea.
4. Agyrophobia - Fear of Crossing the Street
This is a very common sight where people are standing on one side of the road and are not able to cross it. This phobia is known as Agyrophobia which means the fear of crossing the street and highways.
5. Eisoptrophobia - Fear of Mirrors
You might think that this kind of fear is not possible as people love to see themselves in a mirror when they pass one, but this is true. Did you ever feel that when you’re looking into a mirror and you think there might be someone else behind you? This is what fear of mirrors is!
