  1. These phobias may sound strange and be hard to pronounce, but they're real conditions.

    If you are afraid of:

    • Ghosts, you have phasmophobia or spectrophobia
    • Being in love, you have philophobia
    • Staying single, you have anuptaphobia -- you might get really confused if you have this and philophobia!
    • Beautiful women, you have caligynephobia
    • Clowns, you have coulrophobia
    • Puppets, you have pupaphobia
    • The color yellow, you have xanthophobia
