What is a phobia? According to Wikipedia (not always the most reliable source, but relevant for this blog), “A phobia is, when used in the context of clinical psychology, a type of anxiety disorder , usually defined as a persistent fear of an object or situation in which the sufferer commits to great lengths in avoiding, typically disproportional to the actual danger posed, often being recognised as irrational. In the event the phobia cannot be avoided entirely the sufferer will endure the situation or object with marked distress and significant interference in social or occupational activities.”
