Animals & Heights
Fear of animals, heights, blood (or medical procedures such as needles), and flying are the most frequently occurring phobias in clinical samples in that order (barlow, 2002; bourdon et al.
, 1988). My work suggests african americans report more animal fears than other groups (chapman et al., 2008; chapman et al., 2011). Public speaking, part of social phobia, is most common "fear" in general.
