...And how many of these fears do you suffer from?
Hey, you get to choose from fear of flying, fear
of public speaking, fear of heights.
Or if those types of fear don't do
it for you - bit too common - how about one of those strange fears like fear of
clowns or fear of flowers?...
You think I'm joking, don't you? I'm not! The human race is cursed with a wide range of fears, as revealed below,

Most common fears - what this list of fears says...
welcome to my lighthearted look at our most common fears. Yes, I'm sure these
fears cause many of us a lot of suffering, but I think it's important that none
of us forget that other common fear: fear of laughing at yourself.

'MOST COMMON FEARS'
(A) I grouped these fears into various types. And those
types of fear are the following:
2. Relational Pain Fear
3. Self-Loathing Fear,
4. Innate Fears (i.e. fears we were born with). And then I added...
Strange fears, for those odd fears that I could not easily explain!
course, if you disagree with my types of fear then please do let me know! I won't
bite, promise! Or if you have any other comments, for that matter. You can contact
me about these fears!
(B)How did I come
up with this list of common fears?
Well... I used a keyword research
tool, that's how. I simply determined the number of searches people made on
the major search engines, and ordered it accordingly.
I actually used a tool
with the snappy name of Brainstorm It! don't you know - that comes as part of a suite of internet business-building tools collectively known as SBI! - and my list is ordered
by what is known as 'Value Demand'. (And I talk about SBI! on this SBI! self-improvement page, should you be interested!)
So, the list of fears above derives from the most
common SEARCHES for fears. Okay, I admit that it isn't that scientific,
but it's still an interesting list, nevertheless. No? And if you have a
better list of most common fears then I'd love you to share
them with me!
Overcoming these Most Common Fears...
interesting to note that the majority of these most common fears are not innate; i.e.
we have learned to have these fears. Which means the good news is that we can
learn to not have them.
