    I want to know. No offense. WHy is everyone afraid of spiders? One, sure their hairy. SO are apes. Are you afraid of apes?
    Two, spiders are excellent for catching pest bugs. So, do you prefer 10 mosquitos to one spider?
    Three, not many spiders are very poisonous. In fact most spiders are nontoxic!
    Can i just say....
    A phobia is defined as an IRRATIONAL fear.
    That means there is no real explanation, and someone wont be able to describe why they are afraid.
    For example, I have Arachnophobia. However, i dont know why myself. Its not because they are hairy, i find the smaller, longlegged and hairless ones the scariest. And im not afraid of being bitten. I know they are tiny and im huge, I just shake if im near one and get a terrible feeling to run away. Basically, if you dont have it youll never understand what its like.

    So youll never know why

      I don't know why but I have an intense fear of full-face gas masks and old/antique diving helmets - even modern surface supplied divers freak me out. It has to do something with fear of suffocation I guess, somehow I can't stand if a person's face isn't visible. Strange because I can't remember that I had any traumatic experience of this kind.
      Same with elevators: when I was a child we lived on the 7th floor, I used it every day and never have stuck in or something, yet I have nightmares of THAT elevator till present day. The elevator gets unleashed somehow and breaking through the roof of the building, and at the end mysteriously it arrives at a subway station and I have to go home again by feet. It's sooo frustrating!

        I don't really have any severe phobias, but one of which would have to be that of murky/deep water. It's more of a fear of me not knowing what's in it than anything else. It's bad enough that I get anxious when I have to go through water in a game.
        Some people just don't understand that the "best" way isn't always the right way.
        Not everyone plays games to win; some people just want to have fun.
        That doesn't mean that winning isn't fun, and I personally find it very rewarding.
        It simply means that there's more to a game than winning.

                I totally agree with that. I have nightmares about them all the time. I can't put my hand under my pillow etc but I don't know why. I just hate them. It has nothing to do with hair or being bit.

                I watches this show one time that people with phobias have the immediate reaction to flee as their brains warn them they are in danger when they see the object of their fear. This makes sense to me because whenever I see a spider I get an intense adrenalin rush that would be helpful in a situation that my life would be in danger and I would need to run.
