Have you ever wondered what the most uncommon phobias a person can have are? Thanks to this nifty infographic written by Stacy Conradt and put together my Mike Rogalski, you can find out what the top 25 weirdest documented phobias are.

In the 'Be Very Afraid! 25 Uncommon Phobias' infographic, viewers can visually see what the most peculiar phobias out there are. The infographic is structured around a graphic of a man who looks scared out of his wits. Around him are a cluster of tiny circles filled with a graphic depicting a different phobia. Each phobia is defined with a small caption. Some of the phobias are incredibly bizarre and most likely incredibly rare. For example, globophobia is the fear of hearing balloons pop and xanthophobia is when you have a fear of the color yellow.
