    1. I find the name of the phobia is mostly funny. I still can’t understand why some of these phobias exist, though. I can’t understand how one can be afraid of paper or of thinking. If we didn’t need to think, the God wouldn’t have given us a brain to use. It’s kind of sad when you look at some of these phobias and how it hinders one’s life.

      1. Fear is a terrible thing. If they’ll cast them upon the Lord and trust Him, their fears will be a thing of the past.

    1. Girl, sometimes I’m left speechless by some of these fears while compiling the list. I don’t like hugging, but I don’t have a fear of hugging.

  1. Can you even imagine having papyrophobia? You wouldn’t be able to do any school work or read, or work in an office that has paper. Oh dear, what a nightmare!
