Top 10 Extremely Bizarre Phobias http://ohtopten.com/top-10-extremely-bizarre-phobias-writing/ http://ohtopten.com/top-10-extremely-bizarre-phobias-writing/#comments Mon, 25 Jan 2016 05:00:44 +0000 http://ohtopten.com/?p=3663 Ever heard about Seleno-phobia? or Ephebi-phobia? or Oneirogmo-phobia? Well this one surely is the phobia of all teen boys as Oneirogmophobia means fear of wet dreams. And Selenophobia means fear of the moon. And the meaning of Ephebiphobia is fear of youths.

Ever heard about Seleno-phobia? or Ephebi-phobia? or Oneirogmo-phobia? Well this one surely is the phobia of all teen boys as Oneirogmophobia means fear of wet dreams. And Selenophobia means fear of the moon. And the meaning of Ephebiphobia is fear of youths. Huh… that’s a quite an unusual list of phobia, isn’t it?

A phobia is technically defined as an abnormal, irrational and extreme fear of something or of some situation despite being aware of the fact that thing or situation is not actually dangerous or harmful in any way.

But then we all are afraid of something or the other. And for many among us it extends so much so that it needs a whole new term to define it – PHOBIA. And in case you have one, you just have it. No matter how much someone assures you that it is not dangerous and is not definitely going to harm you, you still prefer to run miles away the moment you spot it. I mean, cmmon guys!! I can really understand that some people can have phobia regarding heights, flying or water. But some are simply bizarre… and here is what I mean when I say this:

10. Sanguivoriphobia – Fear of Vampires

Sanguivoriphobia
Sanguivoriphobia

Okay… so finally I am relieved to know that it is not only me who considered sitting through Twilight movie series a torture!!! The word literally translates to “fear of blood eaters”. People having this phobia have a fear of vampires and blood eaters.

9. Anthophobia – Fear of Flowers

Anthophobia
Anthophobia

I really wonder if this is for real… Flowers are usually considered pretty and a refreshing sight. Yet, for some people with this phobia, flowers are their worst fears. People suffering from this phobia have a fear of flowers so much so that they also prefer to maintain a safe distance from their petals or even stems for that matter.

8. Ergophobia – Fear of Work

Ergophobia
Ergophobia

Now, this is a very convenient phobia to have as you will literally don’t have to work!! People suffering from this phobia have an irrational fear of work environment or anything related to work at all.

7. Turophobia – Fear of Cheese

Turophobia
Turophobia

Poor Souls – that’s the only term that I can think for those who did not get even a chance to realize how great a slice of cheese can be. And it’s rather shocking to know that people can actually fear cheese, and that too sooo very much that it can take the form of a phobia!! While some people may fear some particular types of cheese others may have phobia of cheese altogether.

6. Hippopomonstrosesquipedialiophobia – Fear Long Words

hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia__by_iheartkimpine-d5l5bmq

Wow… now that’s quite an ironic name for a phobia of long words!! Ideally, this phobia won’t matter much to those of you who does not have to deal with long words in daily routine. But just in case, you aspire to be a spell bee champ, then God Save You dear! Besides, I am sure most of you who are yet to get out of your “student” phase either suffer from this phobia on a daily basis or have surely suffered from this phobia at least once. :-p

5. Pentheraphobia – Fear of Mother-In-Law

Fear of Mother-in-Law
Fear of Mother-in-Law

Please don’t judge me here, but I guess this is the phobia that most of the Indian bahus definitely suffer from. :-p The sufferers of this phobia have extreme fear of their mother-in-laws. Hmmm… I guess it is only now that I am realising the relevance of the movie Monster in Law!! And you girls or guys who actually suffer from this phobia, better start looking for an orphan partner then!!

4. Geniophobia – Fear of Chins

Fear of Chin
Fear of Chin

Now this sounds almost unreal. I mean, seriously?? How can anyone fear a chin at all?? Strangely enough, people suffering from this phobia find it impossible to interact or even look at people whose chins they, well, don’t like!! I really wonder what they think of their own while they stand in front of the mirror. Curious case indeed.

3. Globophobia – Fear of Balloons Popping

globophobia
globophobia

People suffering from this phobia have an extreme and rather irrational fear of balloons in general or of the sound produced whenever any balloon is popped. That makes me wonder how on earth people with this phobia will ever be able to arrange a birthday party for their kids!!

2. Chrometophobia – Fear of Money

Chrometophobia
Chrometophobia

Huh!!! How I wish this to be true for all the people around me!! So that they would pass on all of their excess money to me! :-p People having this phobia have a fear of having excess money with them.

1. Phobophobia – Fear of Having a Phobia

phobophobia
phobophobia

Finally, there is a phobia of having phobias! This surely tops the charts of all the Phobias in world. People suffering from this phobia live in a constant fear that they might develop a phobia. Far too ironic I must say.

And if you think this was enough of bizarre phobia list, just listen to some of these:

OmphalophobiaFear of Navels

Omphalophobia

TrypophobiaFear of Holes

Trypophobia
Trypophobia

PapaphobiaFear of the Pope

Papaphobia
Papaphobia

SomniphobiaFear of Falling Asleep

Somniphobia
Somniphobia

NomophobiaFear of Being Without Mobile Phone Network

Nomophobia
Nomophobia

HylophobiaFear of Trees

Hylophobia
Hylophobia

PogonophobiaFear of Beards

Pogonophobia
Pogonophobia

Ablutophobia Fear of Bathing

Ablutophobia
Ablutophobia

GenuphobiaFear of Knees or Kneeling

Genuphobia
Genuphobia

Turns out that almost anything and everything is terrible and completely frightening!!

As much as Italy is famous for its natural beauty, mouth-watering cuisines and handsome and happy people and other such great things, it is equally famous for say… not so great things as well. The Sicilian Mafia is something that has been reigning “proudly” on the Italian soil for many years now. Known as Cosa Nostra, the Mafia is a collaboration of several criminal groups who share a common organizational structure and code of conduct. Let’s take a stroll through the lanes of crime and explore some interesting facts about the notorious and infamous Sicilian Mafia:

10. The Mafia Boss Killed Himself

Top 10 Interesting Facts About Sicilian Mafia

Now, its not every time that you see the boss killing himself. But that’s what exactly happened with then Sicilian Mafia Boss Gaetano Lo Presti, who killed himself in 2008. It happened as a consequence of his arrest by the police in an operation against Mafia clan  involving 1200 police officers backed up by helicopters. Now, that is something you called a Grand Operation!

9. Corleone = Mafia’s Den

Top 10 Interesting Facts About Sicilian Mafia

The hilltop town of Corleone is otherwise quite a beauty in itself capturing the nature in all her magnificence. Yet due to the un-suppressed domination of the Mafia, the beautiful town has lost all its glory and has become synonymous to Mafia. The otherwise serene and beautiful town is home to some of the significant Mafia names including the bosses Salvatore Riina and Bernado Provenzano.

8. High Collar Jobs

Top 10 Interesting Facts About Sicilian Mafia

Well, let’s say everybody love to be class apart, isn’t it guys? That’s exactly what the Sicilian Mafia thinks of themselves. They like it sophisticated, fashionable and of course, to do all wrong in a right way. They are definitely not the roadside Mafia groups who are always busy in kicking somebody’s ass in its most literal way. Rather, Sicilian Mafia is all about class. Almost all the members of the gang are actively involved in high collar jobs. They all are well-educated and sophisticated gentlemen who know well enough how to carry on the Mafia legacy by staying within the system and be among the respectable few. It also helps them to avoid unnecessary police intrusions. These reputable positions and background allow for a nice escapade for them many a times as no case can be formerd due to lack of concrete evidences.

7. Typewriter is the New In-Thing

Top 10 Interesting Facts About Sicilian Mafia

Although the game-changer Provenzano changed the Mafia’s strategy to high-tech, white-collar crimes, he was never very sure when it came to technology. He could never trust telephones or emails or any such thing as he felt they are too easy to be intercepted by the authorities. And as they say Old is Gold, the typewriters of bygone eras are used to write messages and are being carried out by the hands of few trusted gang members only.

6. What’s In A Name?

Top 10 Interesting Facts About Sicilian Mafia

Now, to what extent you can live with a bad name that ceases to go away ever! This is the state though which every Corleone resident is suffering through. The residents, mainly consists of small-scale business owners and simple middle-class people with lifestyle far away from any complications. It is being reported that Corleone residents have petitioned to change the town’s name in disgust at its criminal connotations. The Mafia connection does not seem to go down very well with them, which is quite natural for obvious reasons.

5. 20 Billion Pound/Year Through Extortion!

Top 10 Interesting Facts About Sicilian Mafia

Okay, so this one is surely amazing… I mean, if you look at it in that light. In the whole of Southern Italy, the Mafia is believed to make more than 20 billion pound a year only by extorting money from other people, mainly residents who own small businesses. Though this is seriously illegal and demands urgent action but the concerned authorities seem to be at loss of words and actions as well when it comes to taking strict action against the Mafia.

4. The Curious Case of Pizzo

Top 10 Interesting Facts About Sicilian Mafia

Now I known this Pizzo sounds almost like Pizza which brings water to your mouth every time you hear of it. But guyz… Pizzo is a far more unfortunate thing than a slice of Pizza. Pizzo is the Sicilian term for the protection money that every resident, business owner, shopkeeper et al have to pay to the Mafia. It is compulsory and in a way, can be said that, is an amount that people pay to be able to live and carry on with their life.

3. Grassi Murder

Top 10 Interesting Facts About Sicilian Mafia

In 1991, the otherwise calm Sicily was being shaken by yet another “deeds” of the infamous Mafia. Libero Grassi, a Italian clothing manufacturer and a resident of Sicily, wrote a letter to an anonymous, famously known as “dear extortionist” was featured on the front page of the local newspaper. Eight months later after the publication of that particular edition, he was found brutally murdered. Grassi explicitly took a stand against the Mafia’s extortion demands and also, in a way, informed the Mafia that he is no longer willing to pay “pizzo”, a Sicilian term for protection money that was compulsory to be paid to the Mafia. Despite a brave stance no other business owners or shopkeepers agreed to join his campaign and he was gunned down on the streets near his own home. The only positive result that came out of this unfortunate incident is the anti pizzo movement or addiopizzo which protests against extortion. The campaign is being currently led by the active participation of Grassi’s family members inclusive of his wife, son and a daughter.

The notion or concept of peace is indeed difficult to describe. However, the literal definition stands to be ‘absence of violence’ as per the Global Peace Index in 2006. Peace is that abstract aspect which stands on the edge of extinction in today’s world. And so are the numbers of peaceful countries in the world today. In present time it is quite a task to find any nation is can be labelled peaceful in its very true spirit. Yet there still stands some countries who have been constant in the list of most peaceful countries in the world. Living in an environment of restlessness we all should take a lesson from all of these countries who have always been successful in maintaining peaceful terms with not only the world but with life in general:

New Year is just standing right beside the door and I am sure you all must have prepared a list of your resolutions this year as well. But like many other years we all are actually clueless about how to make these resolutions work out as we all hopelessly fail to fulfil what we swear to most of the times. But not this time. We have some of the best and fine tips for you all to stick to you resolutions. Here are certain points that will surely help you to slightly prolong your sticking to the resolutions and actually pave your way to become a better you:

10. Be Realistic

be-realistic
be-realistic

The very first mistake that we all tend to make is an unrealistic approach towards our resolutions. Making them unattainable is one such gesture that we all have towards whatever we swear. If you have a resolution to avoid fries for the next year then stress on the word “avoid” and remember it. It is not that you are never going to have it ever in your life. Every habit needs time to get rid of. You can’t really switch instantly from being completely unhealthy to a complete healthy person. Give yourself some time… avoid it as often as you can, may be more than what you used to. This slow and steady way will surely lead you to a desired stage where you will be able to completely forsake it.

9. Plan

Plan
Plan

Well, it is not that planning always helps or that things always happen in accordance with your plans, but guys, planning ahead is still something that we all should do. Deciding something at the last moment most of the times gives a poorly constructed perception. If you decide on the December 31 eve on what your resolution would be it will be dependent on what you feeling on that particular day or on your mood of that day. So, the trick is to plan your resolution way before the December 31 arrives. It will give you a better perception about yourself helping you to decide exactly what things you should urgently swear to.:-p

8. Outline your Plan

outline your plan
outline your plan

This is an essential after-step of your previous resolution. Outlining your plan is like having a backup option which you can rely on when the temptation is right in front of you. Calling up a friend or shifting your mind to something else – one should always keeps multiple options ready at hand to which you would turn when those fires or chocolates are right in front of you and you seriously need to get past them.

7. Pros and Cons

pros-and-cons
pros-and-cons

Making a list of all the pros and cons of your resolution helps keeping the motivation strong and steady. Yes… you heard me right. Make this list over a considerable time period and ask others to contribute to it. And always keep this list close to you so that you can refer to it anywhere and any time when you need to resolve your issues. This will keep you encouraging and also motivated as you will know exactly what rights you are gaining and what wrongs you are shedding off.

:)

6. Chalk a Talk

Talk about It
Talk about It

There is nothing better than talking about your issues or your resolutions to your buddies or close ones. Don’t keep them a secret and tell the near and dear ones about them. Those people are that essential support system who will help you to sail through. Even better, one of your buddies may actually end up swearing the same pledge as you and both of you can actually motivate each other in keeping those resolutions throughout the year.

5. Reward Yourself

Reward-yourself
Reward-yourself

Okay, so this does not really mean that you will end up eating an entire box of chocolate for that one single time when you successfully avoided the temptation. No. Definitely not. By this I sincerely mean small but meaningful incentives that you can reward yourself with every time you successfully walk past your temptation.

4. Track Your Progress

Track your Progress
Track your Progress

Keep track of each of your success or failures – no matter however big or small they are. Remember those lines of the Royal Stag advertisement: small milate jao, large banate jao, which literally means keep adding the smalls to add the large ones. This is so very true for each one of our lives. Keeping track of each of your small success will keep you motivated to achieve the bigger ones. And these smalls will actually lead to something big in the long term picture.

:)

3. Don’t Obsess

Don't Obsess
Don’t Obsess

Never beat yourself up for keeping your resolution. Put up your best and leave the rest. Give each day your best and even take a break for a day or two if needed. Avoiding chocolates does not necessarily mean you are forbidden to even look at them or you will start hating its existence altogether. Give yourself time for every change that you aim to make.

2. Stick to It

stick to your resolution
stick to your resolution

Be serious to what you aim to do. This is one of the most significant attitude that we all should have towards whatever resolutions we make. Most of us leave in the halfway making the effort made so far absolutely useless. Instead, be slow if needed in your efforts but be steady in each of your attempts. Be persistent and patient and slowly and gradually make each of your resolutions a habit; stick to them until they become a part of your personality.

:)

1.Keep Trying and Achieve New Year’s Resolution

Fail-Better
Fail-Better

They say if you fail once, fail better the next time. This should be the attitude that we all should have towards our resolutions. That’s the bestest way to stick to your resolutions and keep them. Keep trying to keep them even you fail every time you try. Do not panic if it’s mid-February and you have not been able to keep your resolution. Try again. Re-commit yourself. Try over again. And every time pledge again and again to keep your resolutions intact. And keep trying until you reach your goal.

:)

With the New Year just around the corner we all have a new beginning standing right beside the door waiting to knock and enter right away. Since ages we all have been subjected to something to New Year Resolutions – a list of promises that we all make and literally promise to keep those promises intact and follow diligently throughout the upcoming year. BUT, crossing through the lanes of half-baked promises to actually breaking some of them altogether, only few of those promises actually reach the stage of fulfilment. But there indeed lies some great ideas for new years resolutions which one makes, or should at least make every year and should always stick to them. They are simple yet unique and worth trying out; have a look:

10. Adopt a Pet

adopt a pet
adopt a pet

Cat, dog, rabbit, birds – you have quite a variety to choose from when it comes to pet. Join hands to stop the animal trade and adopt a homeless pet this new year. Pets are those companions to you who would stay with you in all your thick and thins, ups and downs, no matter what. They are the true ones whom you can actually count upon. No offence, but pets are quite a better option when it comes to friend instead of fellow human beings. Dogs, or cats, fishes or parrots – they will listen to all your hues and cries and craziness and joy and what not… they will listen to it all without any counter complain or arguments.

9. Fun With Family

family time
family time

Family is not an important thing, it is everything.

                                                                                          Michael J Fox

Families are undoubtedly THE MOST important thing in life; it is the most precious thing to cherish all your life. But often for work or for any other reason or simply because we wish for ME time too often, we simply ignore our family. Especially in present times when the word “privacy” has taken a new level altogether, we actually tend to miss out a lot that a ‘family time’ can potentially offer. All those little cat fights with your sister cousin, difference of opinions with your uncle or simply that irritating little geek that keeps annoying you… surely all such things seem to be quite unbearable at times. Yet, the combination of all these serve as the best buffet of special moments that you surely will cherish throughout your life. So next time no excuses for skipping family get-togethers and just hopping onto the fun that you I bet you will have attending them.

:)

8. Get A Gadget

be tech-savvy
be tech-savvy

Okay, so this is for all those who have a delicate hands while handling gadgets. Yes… I am talking of all those ‘technologically-challenged’ people out there, just like me. :-p Get a gadget right away and learn to handle them in a more proper and effective way, so that next time you have a shut down of your lappy or ipad and you simply have no clue what to do with all those wires and the tabs!!! The crux is… get tech savvy guys!!!

7. Say No To “Waste”

don't waste
don’t waste

Okay, admit it that we all actually waste a lot of things given our vanity. To be precise, think about the time when you bought a dress against a whopping amount and did not wear it ever because you simply went off mood afterwards. Yes, that’s what exactly happens with us. We often tend to do the same with our foods as we simply throw away those pizza crumbs or the last piece because we are not willingly take a bite of it any more. This new year, pledge not to waste anything unnecessarily and also swear to stick to it; because every bit of what we waste can be of immense value to someone who actually needs it more than anything else.

6. Go for A Blind Date/Invite The Cupid

blind date
blind date

We all have our fair shares of heartbreaks and patch-ups. But life is all about break-ups and patch-ups, right guys??? So let’s not take things too seriously and gorge on some fun. And by fun I don’t mean going literally all crazy and actually having no clue what you are up to. But taking a risk is another thing; go for a blind date for once… take the risk… who knows may be you actually get to meet your soul mate in one of those blind dates. :-p 😀

5. Learn a Language

Learning ANew Language
Learning ANew Language

Learning a new language is not at all easy… but always fun!! It allows your access to diverse cultures and opens up the new passage of explorations. Learning a new language always adds to your personality as literally new world gets opened up in front of you. Not only because it makes you knowledgeable but the journey is always filled with fun and excitement.

4. Diary Entries

keep a diary
keep a diary

Diary writing is one of the most beautiful event that one can have – it’s completely my personal opinion but trust me guys it is. And I am sure those who actually keep a diary will understand the little joys that one gets while flipping the pages of it sometimes later. It is like your very own time machine that will take you to all those cherishing moments of your past with just a flip of the pages. Plus, it can also be the ‘one’ with whom you can actually share all the secrets without fearing of it spilling over to a wider audience. It is that non-judgemental friend whom you can always rely on.

3. To Quit, or not to Quit Bad Habits

quit bad habits
quit bad habits

Be it smoking, or biting your nails, or that one extra glass of beer that you can’t enough of… there are certain things in life that we know are bad indulgences yet can’t gather enough courage or will to get rid of them. But this new year swear on to get rid of these and strictly stick to them. At the end of the year I bet you will receive the desired outcomes becoming a better self.

:)

2. Overcome Your Fear this New Year’s

overcome your fear
overcome your fear

Overcoming your fear is indeed the most challenging task in your life. Yet, having the spirit to overcome those fears is something that we all should possess. It is a way to challenge yourself which will enhance your personality altogether. Always remember that fear always limits your potential and there is no running away from your fear. So it is a far more better option to face them and overcome them. It may take time but it is worthy of all your courage and willpower.

1.Read… A lot

Read a book
Read a book

Apart from the scientifically proven reasons such as reading stimulates your mental health and also helps to cope with stress, reading is a fun activity that escalates your knowledge and improves your vocabulary as well. It also makes you aware of the world in a better way and enhances your understanding of the same with an improved focus and concentration.
