One of my favorite blog ever, Colour Lovers, has a very interesting entry: The Scariest Colors Imaginable, matching color palettes and phobias.

Man, I didn't even suspected there were so many phobias around! Pick yours, the list is amazingly and unexpectedly creative:

  • Chromatophobia: The fear of colors, and more specifically:
    • Phodophobia: Fear of the Color Red
    • Chrysophobia: Fear of the Color Orange
    • Xanthophobia: Fear of the Color Yellow
    • Chlorophobia: Fear of the Color Green
    • Cyanophobia: Fear of the Color Blue
    • Porphyrophobia: Fear of the Color Purple
    • Leukoophobia: Fear of the Color White
    • Melanophobia: Fear of the Color Black
  • Coulrophobia: The fear of clowns
  • Ablutophobia: The fear of washing or bathing
  • Trypanophobia: The fear of needles
  • Selachophobia: The fear of sharks
  • Caligynephobia: The fear of beautiful women (ahah, what the..???)
  • Somniphobia: The fear of sleeping
  • Pediophobia: The Fear of dolls (ok, not too annoying)

This article on ColourLovers is, as usual, a stunning mix of creativity and research.

On to the subject of phobias, I found I'm going to start to classify my friends now:)
