Trypophobia

Trypophobia is fear of bunch of holes. So if you have Trypophobia, you'll get scared of dots or holes. I found this phobia in Korean site and I got pretty interested, so I tested my self with pictures and I really didn't got scared but some of them were really disgusting for example holes on people's skin. Belive if or not this Trypophobia is one of most common phobia but still it haven't studied scientifically yet. Here is some test pictures for Trypophobia, if you feel disgusting you probably have this phobia. I couldn't post more disgusting picture, if you want to see it you may look for it in google :)

  1. I don't have a fear to crawl under my covers and pretend this is a dream so I'm going to assume I passed the test. I wonder if any other phobias can be tested this easily.

  2. I saw a person that was suffering from this to the extreme. She couldn't wear anything that had small polka dots. If she sees these she'd be scratching. :(

  3. That's really interesting! To be honest, I've never heard of this phobia so when you said that it's one of the most common, I was surprised! Last year I did a research paper on all of the different kinds of phobias and I never even heard of this one either. But it is definitely interesting! I'd hate to have it!

  4. I have don't think I have a fear of holes or dots, but there have been instances when holes do gross me out...I don't think that's the same thing though. Anyway, this is pretty interesting. I wonder how people react to holes or dots when they come across it.

  5. Wow this would be a hard phobia to have, there must be tons of tiny holes hidden everywhere...I wonder why people are so afraid of tiny holes, when bigger ones are more dangerous.

  7. There are so many phobias in the world and it's interesting to know that there are simple things to be scared of. I am scared tarantulas and people may think that it is a silly thing to be scared of, but it's kind of all about perspective.

  8. It's not so much scary but some, for example: skin, gives me the creeps. Ladybugs however are not scary.

  9. There are really weird phobias. These pictures didn't work for me. When I was younger,I was scared of high, but now I don't care. Ji Eun says she has Typophobia and screaming next to me haha. It is interesting.

  10. Darn I almost threw up after watching those pictures. I think I have trypophobia also. I don't know why but it just disturbs me so much. Especially the last picture scares me.

  11. Didn't get scared, or feel like I was going to throw up. I like that Ji Eun is scared of the lady bug picture, that's just great.

  12. I don't have this phobia, but Mariana does. I think the only phobia I have is not finishing homework phobia. It sounds nerdy, but I can't sleep if I don't finish my homework and I always have a weird sensation that I have to do homework even when I have nothing.

  14. I don't have this phobia but the weirdest one was the one before the last one. I first thought that the photo of the ladybugs bunched up together was a raspberry.

  15. ..... Okay, only like one of those photos disgusted me... the one before the ladybugs it was weird and like...weird. Does that count as having the phobia?

  16. I looked at the picture and I didn't get disgusted, so it may be save to say that I don't have this phobia. Although this one time I was looking at this picture about the bones and there this one picture about bone marrow and I got freaked.

  18. Trypophobia..... I have never heard of it before but it does sound interesting. Thankfully, I am not trpophobic. it would be embarrassing to know that someone is trypophobic.

  19. Yay! I don't have this phobia. Some people said the picture before the ladybugs was creepy and scary or gross, but they all seem fine to me. Some of the pictures actually look cool :D I never thought such a phobia existed, well I guess I always knew that there was a phobia for everything but I never really thought about holes...

  20. I don't have that phobia although the picture with the ladybugs kind of disgusted me! It gives me chills. There are lots of rare phobias such as fear of noise! I thought the picture with straws was cool! Thank God I don't have that fear!

  21. The pictures give me nausea a little, especially the last two pictures. I never thought I had this type of phobia, but apparently I do.
