A phobia is a type of anxiety disorder, defined by a persistent and excessive fear of an object or situation. The phobia typically results in a rapid onset of fear and is present for more than six months.
A Simple Phobia can be characterized by a persistent, irrational fear of a single stimulus, accompanied by a strong urge to avoid that object or situation. Common manifestations of Simple Phobias are an irrational fear of things like spiders, snakes, flying, heights, enclosed spaces, and more.
Those dealing with Social Phobias feel it is extremely difficult to participate in social settings or situations. This is more than a mild shyness. It is a debilitating sense of intense anxiety around being negatively judged or evaluated in a social or setting that may cause the individual to avoid social or performance scenarios altogether.
