I'm scared stiff of Tigers.
One of my mates is petrified of birds ( I mean big style ) and at one of the cup finals we actually persuaded him to visit Trafalgar Square one afternoon.Birds for me - not at a distance, in fact I quite like watching birds. But if I have to touch one I am physically shaking. I don't know why but it's something about the fluttering and unpredictability. I'm getting better though through overexposure as our cat is bringing in several live ones a week
Heights too, but only if there's a rail I could chuck myself over. Went up the tallest lighthouse in France - there was a spiral staircase up the inside of it with a massive drop down the middle and I was sweating.
That’s crazy, do you wear shorts and vest all year round?I’ve got a peculiar one . I can’t stand anything on my wrists , neck or ankles . Cannot bear sleeves , watches , collars and can just about tolerate socks . I’m sure in a former life I was brutally incarcerated in chains ⛓
Opposite, don't mind heights but being on a plane no no no (aviophobia).I hate heights, unless I am in an enclosed room or plane etc in which case i am absolutely fine. Actually, I am not sure whether it is heights (acrophobia) that is therefore the fear or whether its the fear of falling (basophobia), probably the latter i suppose. I also don’t like spiders, but I can at least deal with them when I need to.
