Top 10 Weirdest Phobias

10. Fear of things to the left side of the body - Levophobia
Fear of things to the right side of the body - Dextrophobia
Levophobic and Dextrophobic patients are also often mistaken to have perpetual cervical injuries.

9. Fear of Friday the 13th - Paraskavedekatriaphobia
Don't worry, it only comes once every year.

8. An unusual and abnormal fear of chins - Geniophobia
Don't watch Jay Leno.

7. Fear of looking up - Anablephobia or Anablepophobia
Pedestrian #1: Look it's a bird!
Pedestrian #2: No, it's a plane!
Pedestrian #3: *seizure*

6. Irrational fear of the youth or teenagers - Ephebiphobia
Does being afraid of Miley Cyrus count?

5. Fear that somewhere, somehow, a duck is watching you - Anatidaephobia
Beware of ducks. They might quack.

4. Fear of the color yellow - Xanthophobia
Am betting one is not a Coldplay fan.

3. Fear of Peanut Butter sticking to the roof of the mouth — Arachibutyrophobia
A persistent, abnormal, and unwarranted fear of peanut butter sticking to the roof of the mouth. And I thought Homer was just afraid of Salmonella.

2. Fear of Phobias (a morbid dread or fear of developing a phobia) - Phobophobia
If one fears of developing a phobia, then one already has a phobia. Does that mean one fears oneself?

and the #1 weirdest phobia is...

1. Fear of Long Words — Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia or Sesquipedalophobia
This is just cruel.
Psychiatrist: I'm afraid you have Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia.
Patient: Gaaaaaaah!
